The hotel is taking over the space, opening 'The W Kitchen' in its place.
UPDATE (February 6, 2019): Local Motives To Open in Former BLT Steak Space at W Atlanta—Downtown
BLT Steak, the swanky steakhouse situated in the W Atlanta - Downtown Hotel, is closing its doors.
BLT Steak's last day in business is scheduled for December 31, 2016, Diana Skuodas, a concierge at the hotel, said in an email Friday morning to residents of The Residences at W Atlanta.
The hotel will take over operations of the restaurant starting January 1, 2017 and reopen the space as The W Kitchen, Skuodas said.
"The in-room dinning menu will stay the same for now and the restaurant will have a modified menu. As we update new menus, I will keep you posted."
The BLT Steak space was reportedly put up for lease late-2015 when a CBRE listing, including a "Your Sign Here" graphic, started circulating.
Restaurants in Atlanta's W Hotels seem to be changing constantly.
W Atlanta - Buckhead's Market restaurant was replaced with Cook Hall in 2012 and in the W Atlanta - Midtown, Spice Market was replaced with TRACE last year.
BLT Steak, a restaurant under the ESquared Hospitality restaurant group umbrella, has locations worldwide including Hong King and San Juan.
W Atlanta - Downtown was not immediately available for comment.
