The Glitz

Review by: Roadfood Team

Lunch-only tea room cuisine in what once was a school cafeteria. Definitely not like any other Roadfood restaurant!

A culinary haven in Kentucky

The Glitz is a visual and culinary haven in the middle of the beautiful Bluegrass countryside in Nonesuch, just outside of Versailles, Kentucky, near Lexington. Run by two sisters, the Glitz is inside Irish Acres, an old country school choc-full with antiques, jewelry, and “sensory stimulating” artifacts. The Glitz, when you see it, you’ll understand the name is open for lunch only, Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30 to 2:00, with a fixed price menu.

What should I eat at The Glitz?

Your meal includes a special introductory drink called an apple cranberry spiced refresher, followed by a choice of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and beverages. The signature dessert at the Glitz is not to be missed: the Nonesuch Kiss is a meringue shell topped with mocha ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, almonds and a cherry – TRIPLE DELISH! Special attention is paid to presentation, so it always feels like a special occasion!

Note the very limited hours and seasons of operation.
