LEXINGTON, Ky. -  Triangle Grille, Lexington's newest fine dining destination, announced that it will celebrate its official grand opening on Friday, March 19. Named after its unmatched views of Lexington's renowned Triangle Park, Triangle Grille features innovative American regional cuisine created by Executive Chef Joshua Winslow.

The casual fine dining restaurant, located in Hilton Lexington/Downtown, introduces a spring dinner menu with artfully prepared dishes for dinner including pan seared halibut served over Kenny's Farmhouse white cheddar grits with creamy blue crab succotash; a 20-ounce certified Angus bone-in ribeye paired with asparagus and smoked tomato béarnaise; and rack of New Zealand lamb with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed spinach and apricot jam. Lunch at Triangle Grille includes a bibb lettuce salad with seared jumbo tiger shrimp, dried cranberries, candied walnuts, Kenny's Farmhouse cheddar cheese served with a pomegranate poppy seed vinaigrette; a grilled swordfish sandwich served with sundried tomatoes on Sunrise Bakery focaccia; and oven roasted half-chicken with Sheltowee Farms wild mushroom risotto, sautéed spinach and peppercorn cream. Triangle Grille also will offer a diverse selection of homemade desserts including blueberry and Stoli Vanilla Vodka crème brulée, banana bread pudding and Bailey's Irish Cream cheesecake.

"Our initial seasonal spring menu showcases dishes that are creative and feature fresh locally grown produce," said Executive Chef Joshua Winslow. "Triangle Grille's farm-to-table menu will change with the seasons and will include fare that is traditional but with regional influences. I'm proud of my newly created menu and am delighted to share it with the people of central Kentucky."

Lexington native Executive Chef Joshua Winslow began his culinary career in 1992 as a line cook at Lexington's Merrick Inn. After he graduated from high school, Joshua moved to Charleston, S.C., where he received a degree in culinary arts from Johnson & Wales University and cooked under the guidance of Donald Barickman, one of the South's most prominent chefs. He moved to Philadelphia after graduation and worked for world renowned chef Georges Perrier at five-star restaurants Le Bec Fin and Brasserie Perrier. Joshua's culinary skills continued to develop while working in New York City at some of the city's most esteemed fine dining establishments including L'Absinthe Brasserie and Gramercy Tavern. He returned to Kentucky in 2005 and most recently was the executive chef at Murray's and Merrick Inn.

Triangle Grille will continue the very popular tradition of a lunchtime pasta buffet on Thursdays. Pasta Bar, from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m., will still feature various types of pasta and an assortment of meats and vegetables as well as red and cream sauces. After guests have filled their skillets with pastas, meats, vegetables and sauces, chefs will prepare and dish up each creation.

Bright floral patterns on fabrics and carpeting can be found throughout the 134-seat main dining and 32-seat private dining areas.
