TAJ Bistro

Heard on the street will be an occa­sion­al fea­ture where we share rumors and oth­er unver­i­fied news. Caveat emptor!

New Indian restaurant coming to Winchester?

Update: The pho­to above was tak­en Friday evening. TAJ Bistro is def­i­nite­ly com­ing. So far we have been unable to con­tact the owner. 

According to the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s alco­hol licens­ing board­’s appli­ca­tion data­base, three indi­vid­u­als have filed an appli­ca­tion for a retail drink license for a new restau­rant, to be called Taj Bistro. The address giv­en for the new eatery is 12 Carol Rd., which is the build­ing long known as the Kantucky Diner, and which most recent­ly housed Dickey’s Barbecue. Based on the names of the own­ers and the name of the busi­ness, we’re assum­ing it will serve Indian food. A first for WinCity!

New life for Steak and Shake / Music City Grill location?

Speaking of vacant eater­ies, word on the street has it that the busi­ness on West Lexington Avenue that was built in 2017 as a Steak and Shake loca­tion, and most recent­ly was known as Music City Grill, is about to get anoth­er shot at life. Several peo­ple have told us the new restau­rant will be anoth­er burg­er joint, pos­si­bly a fran­chise of a California chain known as Fat Burger.
