The Lexington Restaurant
The Lexington opened in 1935, after the end of prohibition, and was a popular neighborhood bar to gather and socialize.For decades following, The Lex, as it’s called by locals and enthusiasts alike, was the place to be seen; business dealings, cocktail hours, and milestone celebrations were a regular occurrence for St. Paul socialites.
The new, elevated menu will bring back supper club favorites, like the relish tray, chicken pot pie, and popovers along with some new interpretations of classic dishes like the pot roast. The cocktail menu is no different; offering a new riff on classic cocktails like an old fashioned, a brandy slush and an ever-changing social hour punch of the day.
Now, more than 80 years later, we invite you to be part of the legacy – whether it’s your first visit or you’re returning to reminisce about the past. We invite you to create new memories or revive old traditions as the familiar landmark welcomes you back. Welcome to The Lexington!
