The Triangle restaurant on Prince George Street will close its doors Tuesday, but there’s no need for concern or speculation — it’s only temporary.

The tapas-inspired bar and restaurant will close for renovations from May 15 through May 31, said Triangle General Manager Matthew P. Black.

Renovations at Triangle, 601 Prince George St., include updating computer systems, “reinvigorating” the menus and installing wall-to-wall dance flooring in the dining room.

Combined with a new, adjustable dining room, we’re upgrading the party,” Triangle said in a Facebook post.

Musicians originally scheduled to perform at the restaurant during the renovation period are being rescheduled to alternative dates, the Facebook post said.

Triangle opened in June 2015 as a a small-plate dining bar and restaurant.

The restaurant’s food menu is “tapas-inspired,” incorporating the small appetizers and snacks meant for sharing often found in Spanish cuisine.

The restaurant was launched by proprietors Black, Tyler Eason and Anna Krouse, who together had more than 30 years of restaurant experience when the Triangle opened. Eason previously worked as a chef with Colonial Williamsburg, and Krouse worked as a bar manager in Scotland. Black came to Williamsburg from Mississippi four years before the restaurant’s opening.

The restaurant will reopen June 1 with the Zack Salsberry Music trio.
