The Carlyle Diner is set for a soft opening at the end of this month.
The new restaurant is part of The Carlyle Club (2050 Ballenger Ave.), a nightclub featuring jazz and comedy shows and serving alcohol and classic American cuisine for dinner. The retro-style diner promises to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in the form of pancakes, shakes, burgers and an assortment of pies.
News of the restaurant’s opening was revealed by Visit Alexandria, the city’s tourism bureau, at its “What’s New in Alexandria 2020” event, which was held at the Carlyle Club last Friday. The restaurant does yet appear to have its own website and social media pages; it is also not mentioned on the Carlyle Club’s website.
The Carlyle Club did not respond to calls for comment.
Joe Haggerty, president and CEO of the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce, said that the Carlyle area — between the King Street and Eisenhower Avenue Metro stations — has been booming with development in recent years.
“It’s going like crazy,” Haggerty said. “Nearby on Eisenhower Avenue there’s a lot going on and it’s really going to take off.”
Carlyle Diner is not the only diner planning to open within the city limits. A new Silver Diner location at 4610 King Street, in a new West End development at the corner of King and North Beauregard streets, will open this summer, event attendees were told.
