Original LaSpada’s moving to bigger digs



If you have an iota of nostalgia for LaSpada’s Original Hoagies in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, you’d better get there quick. After four decades, the original, cramped location just south of Commercial Boulevard is relocating to a spot on Commercial. The move should be complete by December.

It’s the end of an era. Back in 1973, John LaSpada Jr. — a third generation sandwich maker whose grandfather opened his first hoagie shop in 1938 in Atlantic City, N.J. — opened a restaurant in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. In 1978, LaSpada sold it to Harry and Gale Kappes. The couple and their son Phil now operate five South Florida LaSpada’s.
