- In December Knoxville's City Council unanimously voted to designate
the city block bounded by Gay Street, Magnolia Avenue, Depot Street
and Williams Street as "Regas Square" in honor of the family
that established the restaurant in 1919 and operated what became a
Knoxville landmark for decades.
On Thursday, January 10 at 3 p.m. a dedication ceremony for the new
Regas Square will be held at the corner of Gay and Depot Streets in
front of Regas Restaurant. Mayor Bill Haslam will lead the ceremony
and Bill Regas will be among the speakers.
There will be refreshments at Regas after the ceremony.
