The Atlantis burger features Angus beef and feta cheese with pickled onion, lettuce, tomato, and tzatziki on a brioche bun. The sandwich is $8.95.
The closure was of Atlantis Restaurant and Pizzeria was announced earlier this month and the restaurant closed this weekend after nearly 30 years in Alexandria. The pizza eatery was a local establishment and several Alexandria figures and outlets mourned its loss.
