Was happy to the restaurant open, the Lost Roo is located in a south Long Beach building that was known for years as Nick's West Bar and Grill. Owners Mark and Helen Johnson bought the building in January 2008 and they have "totally gutted the inside" and have expanded the east side of the building.
