Visions for Vacancies: What Should Go in Place of Marlin & Rays?
The old home of Marlin & Rays is located on prime real estate on Sudley Road in Manassas.
Very little evidence of Marlin & Rays Restaurant is left on the Sudley Road building that less than a week ago housed the now-defunct seafood franchise of Ruby Tuesday Inc.
All Marlin & Rays signage has already been removed from the building, leaving only a red and white "closed for business" banner near the entrance.
Without the signs, the empty building now resembles its sister restaurant Ruby Tuesday, minus the black awning and phrase "fresh American dining" in white font. The location was actually the home of a Ruby Tuesday prior to the company opening the Marlin & Rays in that spot a little over a year ago.
Ruby Tuesday officials and sources familiar with the corporation said they shuttered the franchise because they felt staff and talents could be more effectively used elsewhere in the company.
So what do you see in this now-empty space of prime property along Sudley Road? Tell us in the comments.
