The Lexington is up for sale... again
The lights at the Lex will stay dark
What was once a venerable St. Paul dining institution has struggled to find its place in the modern restaurant scene. The Lexington closed its doors in May to undergo remodeling as ownership changed hands. The Pioneer Press is reporting that the sale has now fallen through.
The restaurant has stood at the corner of Grand Avenue and Lexington Parkway since 1935. In its heyday, it was an elegant room where big business deals were made. Anyone who was anyone could be found in the dining room or mulling over a martini in the elegant bar.
