Neal and Amy Knoll Fraser’s gorgeous Redbird restaurant is hosting a blowout Kentucky Derby party in Downtown next month. The May 5 session will include appropriate hatwear, a live bluegrass band, and a viewing space right out in the restaurant’s large garden. Of course, chef Neal will also be doing up a special menu for the night, with tickets going for $40 a head.
Bar director Tobin Shea has also revamped the restaurant’s entire cocktail collection to match the theme, offering a new collection of drinks under the Triple Crown moniker that are meant to tell the history of horse racing over time. That menu is available now, and runs through mid-July.
