Little Alley Steak on Lenox Road is set to re-open early 2020 after closing temporarily due to a fire that broke out and destroyed the kitchen of the One Alliance Center restaurant in Buckhead on November 20.
While the official projection for reopening is February 2020, Little Alley Steak told a commenter on facebook that they were hopeful for January 2020.
“Thanks to the Atlanta Fire Department’s quick response, the dining area was not damaged and no one was injured,” a spokesperson for Little Alley shared with What Now Atlanta over email Wednesday.
The cost of the repairs is $1.5 million.
As work continues in the kitchen, the team assembles weekly at the restaurant.
All of Little Alley’s 182 employees remain on the payroll and this week were given a 30 percent bonus for the holidays.
“We are one big family at Little Alley,” says co-owner Hicham Azhari.
“Our team is excited to get back to work and provide the same excellent service to our customers.”
Diners can still get a Little Alley Steak fix at its Roswell outpost on Canton Street, which is opened seven days a week for dinner and brunch on Saturday and Sunday.
