Ray’s In The City is moving forward with plans to overhaul its interior.
Last week a building permit application was filed with the City of Atlanta to renovate the 10,400-square-foot downtown restaurant in its entirety.
A spokesperson for parent company Ray’s Restaurants—Ray’s on The River, Ray’s at Killer Creek—Tuesday confirmed the news in an email to What Now Atlanta.
Plans include “refacing” Ray’s In the City with updated décor and furniture, adding a wooden chef’s table with “views of the kitchen,” and expanding the private Wine Cellar room and the bar.
The changes will cost an estimated $750,000.
Bill Johnson of Johnson Studios is designing the new look which should be completed by fall 2018.
It’s unclear if the restaurant will remain open during construction.
