When will Al’s Steakhouse Reopen?
As readers know, we’ve been keeping close tabs on one of the most iconic institutions in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, Al’s Steakhouse. We had heard that the eatery was for sale. John’s son Bo Severson has been looking to sell the joint after the passing of his Dad in August 2014.
We had heard an opening was planned for earlier this year on on March 28. We also told you that Al’s is under new ownership in Alexandria, Virginia on Mount Vernon Avenue. The new owners are a local Del Ray couple.
Now, we’re hearing from multiple sources that Al’s Steakhouse is about two weeks away from (finally) reopening. We understand from our sources that there has been extensive remodeling of the joint with new equipment, etc and yes, new ADA bathroom’s. We’re hearing an expanded menu is in the works as well.
As John ‘Big Al’ Severson used to say “cook your onions first, then the mayo and the provolone are heated together on the grill”.
We will update as more becomes available.
