The otherwise bland stretch of Old Todd’s Road belies the elegance and sophistication of the restaurant’s cool interior, and of the food. School occupies a cozy, cheerful space with colorful wooden geometric patterned walls and minimalist furniture. The ingredients range far and wide and straddle the familiar to foreign.

Katien Sushi (sushi transported on a conveyor system which can be selected at the patron’s convenience) takes center stage. The sushi looks stunning but what really matters is how subtle and fine everything tastes.

Executive Chef Masayuki Sakai creates authentic Japanese cuisine.  The staff at School is friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming.  They are able to answer any questions and point you in the right direction if you are new to Japanese cuisine.

School also, boasts a Culinary Cocktail Lounge (one of a kind in Lexington), many different bottles of wine and shochu and a private karaoke room that can be reserved by the hour.

While located in the heart of the bluegrass you will definitely feel you have been transported to a much larger city for the evening.
