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.
We are sorry to report such sad news this morning. We spoke with Atlantis Pizzeria and Family Restaurant owner Bill Patrianakos this morning and it is true. The iconic family restaurant will shut its doors for good on January 24.https://t.co/mVQo1jLYUV pic.twitter.com/C2F3yxvJUI
