Our Story

Windy Corner Market and Restaurant sits north of Lexington amid some of America’s most legendary horse farms. With this venture, chef/owner Ouita Michel has created another legend with a restaurant that honors local farmers and great food.

We use Kentucky ingredients in our recipes, we have Kentucky foodstuffs for sale on our shelves.

Windy Corner’s menu features Po-Boy sandwiches on locally made brioche, burgers, salads, seafood, breakfast, bakery goodies, soft-serve ice cream and more. Dinner specials range from meatloaf to steamed lobster, from local pasta to catfish. Wine and beer, including Kentucky-produced favorites, are available.

Windy Corner is fashioned after an old country store. “We knew we wanted a new place that felt as old as the wonderful historic buildings that house Windy Corner’s sister restaurants, Wallace Station Deli, Midway Bakery and Holly Hill Inn in neighboring Woodford County,” Michel said.  

The siding and floors are made from reclaimed wood; there’s beadboard on the walls; the roof is red; lilacs and lavender dot the landscape; and a screened-in porch sits out back.

Our aim for Windy Corner is to provide a market for Kentucky farms. We invite you to join our quest to build our local farming and food communities and economies by eating and buying local foods.
