In the Lexington at Grand Ave

We joined Virg and Kim for a look-see this afternoon of the reopened Lexington Restaurant at Grand Ave in St. Paul -- and it's gorgeous. You need reservations a month in advance for their formal dinner, our waiter says, but we were happy to simply sample the bar menu in this 1930s setting, repolished for those who appreciate the authentic old school experience. Virg ordered an "Old Fashioned." Which one? she asked. There are five versions on the menu.
Of course we had to top it all off with waffle cones and such at the Grande Olde Creamery just down the street.

What's the drink that comes with flowers? Looks like a great place to add to the Ball of String contenders!

The flowers were on the table behind the glass of water, so not actually in a drink....however mine did come with an umbrella - as it was the Singapore Sling. Yum-my!
