Lexington Pasta Hosted the 2015 Savoring Kentucky Sponsor Gathering: Insider Advance Tour of New Location, Special Foods, Special Love

We had to reschedule the recent gathering of Savoring Kentucky's sponsors, but the second try was more than charmed. On March 3 Lesme Romero, owner of Lexington Pasta Company and the new Pasta Garage Italian Café (opening soon) welcomed us to the new location at 962 Delaware Avenue. We toured, we tasted splendid food, we learned, and we enjoyed.
