■ Tommy Walters is back in business with another Furlongs.
Walters, a Louisiana native who is known for his great Cajun specialties, has been in and out, and round and about, the restaurant business since 1990. He began his career in Lexington at Laffite’s Rendezvous; opened The Hidden Cove and The Louisiana Café, and the original Furlongs in 1993 at Fayette Place. It closed in 1995, and reopened at 735 East Main Street a year later. It moved to the former Coach House location at 855 South Broadway, and later returned to East Main Street. The name changed after a dispute between Walters and his business partner in 2008. Walters also was a partner in the Riptide Restaurant on the Kentucky River, and most recently has been catering.
The new Furlongs is at 130 West Tiverton Way, in the former Corky’s BBQ spot. Hours are 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 3 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Call (859) 523-5500.
