W Atlanta—Downtown’s BLT Steak to Shutter Dec. 31

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.
