The first restaurant that opened under Trinity Groves’ new CEO Julian Rodarte is Lexy. It’s named after his wife, Alexa according to a Restaurant Hospitality article from August 11. They say,
“The first new opening under Rodarte’s direction is Lexy’s, which is slated to debut on Aug. 15. The restaurant is named after Julian’s wife, Alexa —Trinity Groves’ director of marketing — and is inspired by the couple’s travels to some of their favorite dining destinations and wine regions around the world, including Provence, the Amalfi Coast and Greece.”
“We wanted to bring some of these experiences back to Dallas,” Alexa told Restaurant Hospitality.”
