About the speaker
You may be familiar with Dan Wu as the “Culinary Evangelist,” a leader in the Bluegrass culinary scene who hosts a podcast interviewing local restauranteurs and chefs. Or you might have seen Dan competing on FOX’s “Masterchef” in 2014.
Earlier this year, Dan led the “I Am a Kentuckian” video project, highlighting the diverse contributions of Kentucky’s immigrant and refugee population while raising awareness and funds for immigration and refugee rights and advocacy.
In September, Dan will open Atomic Ramen in the new food barn at the Summit at Fritz Farm.
The Barn is Kentucky’s first and finest artisan food hall—bringing the best of Lexington’s culinary scene to the heart of The Summit at Fritz Farm. An all-local, all-independent lineup of restauranteurs are making a new food destination for the city, with craft ice cream, pasture-raised fried chicken, Greek street food, Japanese ramen, and more. The Barn is where locals can hang, and out-of-towners can experience authentic Lexington.
We are proud to be Lexington’s first ice cream lounge! Serving our premium hand crafted ice cream along with toppings, sandwiches, and pastries made in house or brought in from our favorite local bakers.
Nate’s Coffee strives to provide the highest quality coffee, roasted in small precise batches. You’ll find Nate’s Coffee in whole bean or drip coffee across the Bluegrass.
In our neighborhood shops you’ll find expertly crafted coffee and espresso drinks with the freshest locally roasted coffee; paired with life-changing donuts that are completely made from scratch in our kitchens. We love the neighborhoods we serve. We positively influence our communties by volunteering our time and giving back 10% of our profit.
