Posted on May 13, 2019 | in Uncategorized | by

Lexington’s second LaRosa’s Restaurant location opened in the Coliseum Plaza, corner of Rose Street and Euclid Avenue in early February 1975. The popular Cincinnati-based restaurant featured big backed booths and stucco walls. Preparing to serve customers were, from left, Diana Cagle, Jim Hoff, manager, Lance Churchill, co-owner, and Kirk Seeberger, co-owner. The first Lexington LaRosa’s location opened in Woodhill Shopping center in 1974. Both locations were closed before 1979. A new Lexington location will open today on Richmond Road. It will be the second-largest LaRosa’s in the chain, behind only the original. Photo by Frank Anderson | Staff
