Lexy’s is moving to a cornet spot at Trinity Groves in West Dallas. The restaurant is named after CEO Julian Rodarte’s wife Alexa, Trinity Groves’ marketing director according to a Dallas Morning News article from July 27. They say,
“American restaurant Lexy’s is moving into a corner spot at Trinity Groves in West Dallas by mid-August 2022.
It’s the first big opening for new CEO Julian Rodarte, the 29-year-old chef who took over the development a few months ago. It’s Rodarte’s job to infuse new life into a beleaguered restaurant park that was once an incubator for Dallas’ most rising stars in food. Rodarte’s existing Trinity Groves restaurant, Beto & Son, has thrived alongside Kate Weiser Chocolate and Cake Bar, though more than a dozen other concepts have tried and failed to find a customer base.”
The restaurant’s menu will consist of local American food, and it will be offering lunch and dinner services according to an Eater Dallas article. They say,
“There will be a lunch and dinner service, with menus featuring locally sourced wagyu and produce from Profound Farms in Lucas, TX, fresh seafood, and influences from the experiences and travels of the Rodartes.
Appetizer menu items include the Wagyu Hot Rock, a play on avocado toast with tuna; crab and lobster cakes; and brisket stuffed avocado croquettes. Entrees will include a 32 oz. Tomahawk for two for less than $99, weekly Texas wagyu steak specials, a 24-hour brined half roasted chicken, Lexy’s Shrimp Fried Rice, and a whole snapper prepared two ways —tempura fried and pan seared. A highlight of the cocktail menu is a CBD-infused high tea, made with a blend of chai tea, coffee, and cocoa nib-infused tequila that will be served in a vintage porcelain teapot with dry ice smoke.”
Lexa is currently the only American restaurant in Trinity Groves, joining Mexican, Chinese, and Italian restaurants.
