We are a modern southern-inspired restaurant serving a seasonally crafted menu. Stop in for a quick & nourishing breakfast, indulge in our weekend brunch, or gather with your loved ones for our daily supper. You’ll be served an experience full of true southern hospitality.
We handpick our ingredients based on the season, the farmers we know, and the flavors we love. We weave hints of bourbon throughout the menu, paying tribute to our Kentucky roots. Our craft cocktail program, curated bourbon list, and selection of wine and local brews will start your night off right, and further complement your meal.
So come on in! We’ve thought of every detail to cook up an experience you’ll love.
We’re a bit like our hometown: sophisticated, well-traveled, but grounded in our roots. We believe there’s nothing more important than taking time to dine well with family and friends in a beautiful space. And we have a passion for all things Bluegrass - curing our meats in-house, supporting the region’s diverse farming and food community, and keeping a local-first mindset in everything we do.
Epping’s is located in a renovated historic building that once held Epping Bottling Works, home to the hustle and spirit of local entrepreneur John G. Epping. Today, we are proud to honor that history and be part of the energy of downtown Lexington’s Warehouse Block.
Lexington’s own celebrity Chef Jonathan Lundy & business partner/Certified Sommelier TJ Cox, co-owners of Corto Lima, have once again partnered with Lee Greer, President of Greer Companies, to develop ItalX, an avant-garde Italian restaurant coming soon to City Center at 160 West Main Street.
The team draws inspiration from Italy’s emphasis on simple, fresh, quality ingredients and inspired hospitality in a warm and inviting space. A twist on traditional Italian fare, the menu will feature multiple scratch-made pastas, reimagined small plates, vegetarian and gluten-free offerings, and everyone’s favorite desserts. Popular Italian dishes will be reinvented with elegant presentation.

We believe coffee is more than just a beverage it’s an experience. One that needs to be celebrated and shared. Our customers deserve a quality cup of coffee form a verified source, and they should be able to get one without being late to work. We strive to provide the highest quality cup of coffee with the best customer experience possible.
Old School Coffee is located in the historic Dudley Square. This building certainly has a lot of history, this structure was originally constructed in 1881 where it served as Public School #3. It operated as a school from 1881-1925. The building still has its “old school” charm with plenty of new age designs. We love natural light, exposed brick, and of course great coffee.
