The chefs will be unveiling a new menu in the fall, as well, although they will retain the 1620 classics like steak, fish and liver, according to Qualls.  “We’re going to keep the charm of the [original] restaurant,” he said.

The renovations will convert the existing private dining side of the eatery into a more casual dining area with its own bar and a nightclub vibe.

The club side will feature a live disc jockey and extended hours Friday and Saturday nights. Qualls, who has Broadway performance experience, may host a cabaret or two, as well.

The main dining room will still offer a classic, fine dining experience.

Further physical changes to the eatery will include an enclosed patio, waterfall and other “surprises in store,” Qualls said.
