Kishido—the Japanese translation is "The way of the knight"

Visit one of our latest additions, Kishido. Kishido means the way of the knight and often translates to chivalry, which within the knightly system is a code of conduct or a combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, especially courage, honor, courtesy, justice, and readiness to help those in need. We are here to serve our Geneseo Knights a variety of delicious made-to-order sushi and Japanese cuisine at Kishido, our on-campus sushi bar located on the first floor of Letchworth Dining Complex.

Squire Express Delivery—Now Available for Delivery to ISC Building

Our true-blue delivery service is a means to help support our Geneseo knights and campus community, by offering an on-campus delivery service of freshly-made salads, sandwiches, wraps, snacks, sushi, and Japanese cuisine. Learn More
