Clay Oven Is Replacing Lexx in Lexington Center

A couple of months ago, it was reported that an award-winning suburban restaurant was closing, and now we have learned that a new dining spot will be moving in--and retaining some of the former restaurant's menu items.

According to an article from Wicked Local and the Lexington Minuteman, Clay Oven is opening in Lexington Center, taking over the old Lexx space on Mass. Ave. The post mentions that the new eatery will be an Asian fusion spot that offers Indian fare along with "modern twists," and it will also offer dishes that had been served by Lexx, while a post within the jobs section of indicates that it will be a casual upscale restaurant. If all goes as planned, Clay Oven could open early this month.

Lexx first opened in 2004, receiving numerous accolades from the local media for its New American fare, wine, and craft cocktails.

The address for Clay Oven (and the now-closed Lexx) is 1666 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA, 02420.
