Bostonians who vacation on Nantucket will have a new restaurant to check out in April.

Michael Getter purchased Cioppino’s Restaurant & Bar on Broad Street, which has closed after 16 years.

The former chef and part owner of Nantucket’s American Seasons is renovating the restaurant, originally a private home built in 1850, and will reopen it as Dune.

“I wanted it to have some Nantucket connotation, and dunes definitely surround Nantucket,” Getter said “The design concept is going to be kind of soothing earth/sand-tone colors, and the cuisine is going to be modern American.”

Getter previously served as executive chef at 21 Federal on the island and as chef at Boston catering company Max Ultimate Food.

The 75-seat Dune will be open year-round for dinner, with lunch added in the summer months.
