Lexx Restaurant in Lexington Is Closing

An award-winning suburban restaurant is closing its doors after being in business for 15 years.

According to an article from Wicked Local/The Lexington Minuteman, Lexx Restaurant in Lexington Center is shutting down for good on June 29, with owner Chris Bateman indicating that he is ready to move on, saying that "I've been doing this for 26 years... It's a younger man's game to be honest. Not that I'm not young, but the restaurant business is a grind." The Mass. Ave. dining spot, which first opened in 2004, has been known in part for its New American fare along with its wines and craft cocktails, with its website saying that it has been awarded "Best of Lexington" in "numerous" categories while The Boston Globe once gave is a glowing review, saying that "It's what you want in a neighborhood place."

The address for Lexx is 1666 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA, 02420.
