The Smith Brothers trend-setter in regional American cuisine, Parkway Grill continues to define dining in the city and beyond. Parkway Grill specializes in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Throughout its 25 years, Parkway’s innovative chefs have showcased an intriguing array of dishes using locally sourced ingredients. <br /><br />Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to fresh produce, Parkway Grill planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant, which continues to thrive on a piece of prime real estate in the heart of Pasadena.

"In Pasadena for two weeks so have tried nearly every restaurant, this is a terrific place with great wait staff and superb food. The raw oysters were some of the best I've had and the duck was delicious. Excellent service, seated on time and great wine list."

Sabio opened in April 2012 as a trendy casual fine dining experience inside the historical Dudley Square school house. The dudley Square building served as the third city school for Lexington. We chose the name Sabio because of it's rough translation to "being wise and educated," a title befitting the educational history of the buildings.<br /><br />The real reason you'll love Sabio as much as our passionate regulars isn't because of our location or beautiful decor, it's the food. <br /><br />French American cuisine with Spanish and Caribbean influences, our menu offers a little bit of everything. Most importantly, we make our food fresh. Farm-to-table as they say. Our menu, prepared by Executive Chef and Owner Javier Lanza, uses only the finest Kentucky Proud ingredients buying from local farms and even growing all of herbs on property in our own garden. <br />

"Great location, great decor. Food was tasteless. Barest basic seasonings. Filet was good quality but lacked even a touch of salt or pepper, as far as I could tell there wasn't anything seasoned. Rack of lamb was served rare and the quality was poor. Chewy and stringy. Duck breast was good as was the vegetable puree but was served over a violet colored sauce that was unappealing. Appetizers were lobster risotto, nearly over done in the fryer but tasty inside. Dungenes crab cake was mostly a deviled crab cake, not lump as our server indicated. I would probably try it again, assuming this time was a fluke since most of the reviews of the food have been positive. Service was okay not great."
