The Royal is Back on St. Asaph in Alexandria on April 11, 2024

The long-time North Old Town restaurant looks better than ever!

Alexandria, VA  The Royal Restaurant, a long time fixture on St. Asaph has been reborn. The Royal Restaurant was opened 118 years ago. Charlie Euripides bought the restaurant in 1957, and after his death, the family sold the restaurant to Alexandria Restaurant Partners last year.

ARP has refurbished and updated the interior and added a patio seating 56. The counter in the original part of the restaurant has become a full service bar. The beverage menu features beer, wine, and mixed drinks including cocktails designed for the restaurant.
