Lexington Social House, the scene of Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul's engagement party last week, is expanding its dinner menu to include a greater variety of options. Paired with chef Mette Williams' frequent trips to the Hollywood and Santa Monica farmers market, the restaurant recently rolled out a new menu featuring a few lighter dishes like shrimp and albacore ceviche, as well as a handful of heavier stuff like bone marrow and chipotle pork belly biscuits with fried egg and gouda, to be served from evening into the late-night. Williams is keeping some of her favorite dishes on-board, like fried chicken with bacon-braised kale, while the best time to stop by for a nibble may be 6:00-8:00 P.M. back at the bar, where food and certain cocktails are discounted at 50% off for happy hour (or "social hour," as they call it here), Tuesdays through Fridays.
