Farewell Lexington Street
After just over a decade of service, the original Fernandez & Wells site at 43, Lexington Street in Soho, is to close at the end of the month. For many this might come as a shock and we will all be sad to see it go. The reality is though that Soho is ever changing and while rents and rates have risen, our local customer base has dwindled, with more high-end brands moving in and offices full of hungry and thirsty workers moving out. We would like to thank all our customers for their loyal support and happy times and encourage them to continue the dialogue at our other amazing site in Denmark St, just 10 minutes walk away. This note received from a customer last week provides, perhaps, a fitting epitaph..
I understand how people moan so I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team at Lexington street in soho. I went in today for a glass of white and a light bite only to hear the destination was closing. As someone who has worked in soho I’ve seen many changes and not all for the best. I believe even Mr Wells came in to change a light bulb whilst I was there Highlighting to me the professionalism and care till the bitter end. Thank you for the great food and good times shared with friends and I look forward to continuing visiting your other ventures. Keep up the great work.
