BIZNOTE: Phoenecia announces new location

They promised their Alki closure at the end of 2018 wasn’t the end of their acclaimed restaurant … and indeed, it wasn’t. The Khazaal family has announced they’ll reopen Phoenecia in The Junction this summer. The new space, 4717 42nd SW, was previously home to Alchemy (evicted last December). The Junction is a past home as well as future home for Phoenecia; as noted when the family patriarch Hussein Khazaal died a decade ago, it is where he founded the restaurant in the 1970s.

    I went there with a friend for the first time in early May1996 to celebrate the full price offer I made to buy my first home where I still live and was rewarded with memorable food and drink that welcomed me to Alki. Certainly it has always been a place for quality food and classy traditional hospitality found elsewhere only at La Rustica, imho.  I have no financial connection to either establishment.

    This will be nothing short of a grand success for some of the best people I ever had the pleasure of getting to know during my years in the industry.
