Majestic Cafe - Closing Tonight For Good

Multum in Parvo | Jan 28, 2007 06:36 AM

The Majestic Cafe on King Street, Old Town, Alexandria, is closing tonight. Rumor has it the new investor/owners are intent on converting the space into a sports bar and reopening in 6 months. The Majestic was one of the few, solid places on King Street with quality food, chic atmosphere and great service. The vision of the original chef/owner carried on, as did the unique desserts (and the wonderful layer cake of the day). What's the deal? The last thing King Street needs is another crappy bar pushing burgers and fries. The Majestic was always packed, so one has to imagine the new investors are counting on the game day crowds and tourists to make the register ring. The locals are quite disappointed. It looks like yet another lame restaurant for King Street ... this time at the expense of one of the few standouts.
