BIZNOTE: Phoenecia reopens Tuesday in new West Seattle Junction location

(WSB photo: Sonya, Inaam, and Nadia Khazaal)

The Khazaal family is ready to welcome you back to Phoenecia. Nine months after they lost their longtime location in Alki, they’re ready to reopen at 4717 42nd SW in The Junction. That’s the same neighborhood where Phoenecia’s late founder Hussein Khazaal first opened Phoenecia in the early ’70s. Almost two weeks ago, we reported that they hoped to open by the end of this month; today, they called to tell us they’d set the date – Tuesday (September 24th). So we stopped by tonight for a photo; the restaurant was full of diners enjoying a friends-and-family preview. Phoenecia will be open Tuesdays-Sundays, 4-10 pm, closed Mondays.

    Three lovely ladies. I remember when Sonya and Nadia were kids at the original Alki Phoenecia. They are a big part of what makes West Seattle a great community. Thank you for coming back.

    I will never forget how kind Hussein was to me when I dined at the Alki location…I was eating alone and he made me feel like I was the most important person in the room. I can’t wait to try the new location.

    I only went to Phoenecia but a handful of times and Hussein would always greet me warmly “Ah, Patron!” I would see him shopping at MM and again he would greet me effusively. I am looking forward to taking my new wife to the new location. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
