1618 Downtown Introduces The Happenin’ Hour, Late Night and Private Dining
GREENSBORO, N.C., Sept. 25, 2018 – Fall is ushering in some exciting changes at 1618 Downtown. Beginning September 25, patrons can enjoy several new menus, new hours and a private dining area.
Exciting new concepts begin Sept. 25
The Happenin’ Hour will replace lunch, and take place from 3 – 5:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The menu will include fun items such as flatbreads, wings, the almost-world-famous pomme frites, burgers and sandwiches.
“Our changes tend to mirror customer preferences,” said Proprietor Nick Wilson. “We’re seeing customers gravitating toward late afternoon instead of traditional lunch times. We’ll miss our loyal lunch patrons, but I hope they’ll join us for Happenin’ Hour.”
The restaurant is also adding late night hours, with a special menu including hand-pattied burgers, flatbreads, tacos, rotating charcuterie and cheese boards.
“A 10 p.m. close was a little early for many of our patrons,” said Wilson, “so we’re extending our hours each evening to close at midnight.”
The dinner menu is getting a refresh with the addition of new features and a new tasting menu. One of those features is a Fancy Meat-n-3, with a 1618 bent. Choose your protein, fixins and sauce, and then leave it up to the kitchen to deliver something better than you expected.
Every new seasonal menu will now include a tasting menu, a three-to-four course dinner complete with a wine and/or beer and cocktail pairing. Price is $30 per person plus beverage pairings. Reservations are required to experience the tasting menu.
Last, but not least, is the development of a private dining area in the back of the restaurant. Called The Greenhouse, the area seats up to 24 people and is the perfect space for fall gatherings and holiday parties.
