Jeffrey Yates Has Bought the Table Talk Restaurant on Duke Street


Table Talk Restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia at 1623 Duke Street
UPDATED (11:20 AM – June 15):: I have found out more information about the sale. See updated portion below.

Thanks to a reader tip, we can confirm that Jeffrey Yates has bought the Table Talk Restaurant, located at 1623 Duke Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, from owner Moe Movahed and family. The deal was completed this past week.

Terms are undisclosed for the restaurant, which opened in 1976, and I am trying to find out if the deal includes property that Moe owns around the City of Alexandria. It is also unclear at this time what if anything will change regarding the operation of the restaurant.

UPDATED:: I am told from sources that popular employee Nick Kapetanakis will stay on and the deal was for the restaurant only and, according to sources, the deal does not include other property that Moe owns around the City. Also, I hear while no change in operation will happen suddenly, there is speculation that Table Talk will add dinner in the near future. I am also told a professional manager is to be hired for the location.

My family and I have been enjoying Table Talk breakfasts for years. Weekends, the place can be packed, but is always friendly and the breakfasts are excellent. Table Talk is an affordable joint in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.
