Popular Buckhead steakhouse Little Alley announced plans for reopening after shuttering following a November fire.
The One Alliance building at Alliance Center Driver near Lenox Road was evacuated Nov. 20 when a fire broke out inside the restaurant, destroying its kitchen. The dining area was not damaged and no injuries were reported.
The restaurant’s owners have their eyes on reopening in February 2020 after a $1.5 million renovation.
All of Little Alley’s 182 employees remain on the payroll and this week were given a 30% bonus for the holidays. They’ve also been asked to complete “homework” assignments and to make presentations for cash prizes. They also attended a bourbon tasting earlier this week
“We are one big family at Little Alley,” said co-owner Hicham Azhari in a prepared statement. “Our team is excited to get back to work and provide the same excellent service to our customers,”
Little Alley Steak Buckhead opened in January 2018, with a menu offering everything from charcuterie, cheese, appetizers and salads to chilled shellfish and seafood entrees, as well as the likes of an American Kobe burger and Springer Mountain roasted chicken.
Azhari and Fikret Kovac’s F&H Food Trading Company restaurant group also include a Little Alley Steak Roswell that opened in 2012 as we as Roswell, Alpharetta and Woodstock locations of their casual, “globally inspired” Salt Factory Pub.
