1601 Bar & Kitchen

Located in Western Soma, 1601 Bar & Kitchen is a family owned and operated small plates restaurant where Chef-owner Brian Fernando integrates his Sri Lankan heritage into his French culinary training. Our menu is guided by the team’s inspirations, changes frequently, sensitive to seasons, and always contains gluten free and vegetarian options.
We strive to create the dishes that are vibrant, colorful, and appealing both to the eye and the palate. Without being authentically Sri Lankan, 1601 Bar & Kitchen’s cuisine is technique-rich, attentive to details, and very much Chef Fernando’s humble personal tale.
