Take a break from holiday shopping, or just skip it altogether, and hit The Lexington for lunch on Black Friday. The St. Paul dining institution will be open for lunches on Fridays only, starting on Black Friday, Nov. 23. The restaurant will serve items from its bar menu along with daily specials every Friday until Feb. 1. They’ll also be running a $5 special on The Lex Martini, which can be made with gin or vodka, neat or dirty. Lunch runs from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., and reservations are recommended. You can reserve a table at thelexmn.com or by calling 651-289-4990. Complimentary parking is available in the lot behind the restaurant or the lot across Lexington Parkway until 5 p.m.
