Eating Out: Sexy Dining and Dancing at Lexy Lounge

If you're looking for an atmospheric spot that will impress your date, Lexy Lounge just may be your spot.

Located at 325 King Street West across from the Holiday Inn, and formerly known as Milano, renovators have really done their best to transform Lexy into a more posh setting. The soft yellow glow and intimate booths make diners feel relaxed and welcome. Most people were dressed their cheeky best, ready to hit the nearby clubs. Soulful music played in the background, everything from Jamiroquai to relaxing house.

What can your pocketbook expect? Mixed drinks and martinis run from $9-12. The $17-22 dinner menu has everything fancy from chicken cordon brie and grilled strip-sirloin, to duck and lobster.

The tapas appetizer menu items are $9 each and can make a nice fancy and light meal before hitting the dancefloor. You can choose from: sloppy joes made with duck and forest mushroom; pork belly quesadillas; seared Atlantic scallops; chipotle chicken pops with coconut, kiwi, and mango; fish and chips; aioli, chipotle cream, with assorted salts; steak and onion rings; and more unique, delectable dishes. I personally recommend the seafood fondue with shrimp, lemon caper, and scallops. I'm not even a big seafood fan, but this dish really hit the spot!

Unfortunately, they advertised Shiraz wine but could not deliver so we had to opt for our second choice wine. However, I was willing to forgive, as the service was amicable and the overall experience was very satisfying.

Downstairs they had an additional bar, couches, and a live DJ playing groovy house to accomodate those who feel more like dancing instead of driving. Not to mention, the kitchen at Lexy Lounge is open until 3am for posh, post-club grub!
