Atlantis Pizzeria and Family Restaurant Closing on Jan. 24

After nearly 40 years in business, Atlantis Pizzeria and Family Restaurant will close on Jan. 24.

The restaurant’s owners said that the loss of business from the pandemic destroyed the business, and thanked loyal customers for years of support.

“It is with great regret that we will be CLOSING Atlantis Restaurant on January 24th,” owners Jim and Bill Patrianakos wrote on Facebook. “We are deeply saddened that it has come to this point, but the pandemic has proven to be too difficult for us to continue normal business.”

The Greek and Mediterranean restaurant at 3648 King Street in the Bradlee Shopping Center has been open sporadically throughout the pandemic, and has only served carryout. The company website still features daily specials, like fresh, hearty soup by the cup, bowl or gallon.

The news of the closure broke over the weekend, and a number of outlets covered the story, including WTOP, The Zebra, and Patch. Mayor Justin Wilson told Alexandria Living Magazine that Atlantis received back-to-business grants from the city last year, and that the closure is a “tragic loss.”

A number of prominent Alexandrians commented on the closure announcement, including Alexandria City Council member Amy Jackson.

“A lifetime of memories for me. Heartbreaking,” Jackson wrote. “They have been our go-to at least once a week during the pandemic. So sad!”

Del Ray’s Gayle Todson Reuter wrote that it was sad news.

“You have been such an important part of the community,” Reuter wrote.
