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.

The interior renovations at Ray’s In The City—originally planned in 2015—follow an exterior overhaul that was completed in 2013 in conjunction with the restaurant’s 10-year anniversary.

It’s unclear if the restaurant will remain open during construction.
