A popular Highlands restaurant will be temporarily closing next month in order to construct an expanded complex with retail uses on site.

La Bamba is razing its existing building at 1237 Bardstown Road and will replace it with a new 1,400-square-foot facility next year, according to a news release.

The restaurant’s last day in its current location is Nov. 11. La Bamba is slated to reopen in its new facility by April 2020, and demolition of the existing restaurant will start next month.

“We’ve loved being part of the Highlands for the last 22 years and are excited to bring not only a better space for the restaurant, but opportunity for more retail space in this sought-after area,” Ramiro Aguas, owner of the Illinois-based La Bamba restaurant chain, said in the release. “We’ll miss our customers over the next several months, but will be back bigger and better in the spring.”  Click here to read more from Business First.
