The gist: This St. Paul institution has been around since the end of prohibition, but after a total facelift in recent years The Lex is back and better than ever.
The food: It definitely harkens back to a simpler time. Get the double bone pork chop or “famous” smoked chicken pot pie along with a bathtub-style Old Fashioned, if you’re dining in.
The cost: Entrees range from $16 - $75.
How to order: Make a reservation for the dining room, walk up to the rooftop patio or order takeout on ChowNow.
