French techniques and Southern soul elevate the traditional American dishes at 1620, a family-run establishment that accents its gauzy, intimate interior with vibrant original artwork. Named Best Romantic Restaurant in a 2010 KATV CityVoter poll, the restaurant comes courtesy of Chef Evette Brady and a staff that includes her nephew Timothy Morton, who can often be seen brainstorming that night's dinner specials over heaps of fresh meat and produce at local Little Rock markets. Globular wine glasses dangle over a full-service bar, where fine vinos from across the globe cleanse palates still savoring the Sunday-brunch menu, which sates stomachs with Southern fried chicken and lobster burgers.
