As you know, we try and get to Carson’s at least twice every time we’re on the Bourbon Trail. The food is great, the whiskey selection is extensive, the atmosphere is bustling, and the staff is phenomenal. And that’s an understatement.
Carson’s Food & Drink in Lexington, KY has earned its merits, awards, and the community that supports it. It has anchored itself as one of the top restaurants in the area and even won national acclaim for its next-level brunch. And, now, they are celebrating their five-year anniversary.
At the helm, entrepreneur Mark Fichtner has led his team to build Carson’s name. The staff has become family to him. So much so that he even took money from his own pocket to fund keeping his entire staff on during the height of the COVID 19 pandemic. And, speaking to him about Carson’s now and then, he couldn’t be more proud and grateful for everyone, both his staff and the Lexington community.
“Opening Carson’s 5 years ago was my life time career goal. But, Carson’s has become way more than a goal, it has become a part of the fabric of Lexington. And for that I could not be more grateful.Mark Fichtner
Here are to many more years with friends and family!”
