Dining Guide

Boiler Nine

An evening out at this modern-industrial Seaholm eatery is always a good time, especially when seated on the upper level. We started with a devilishly good serving of muhammara, a Middle Eastern dip akin to hummus with red pepper, yogurt, cumin, and coriander, served with thin, crispy sesame crackers. Perfectly seared scallops were plump and delicious with roasted maple-glazed rutabaga, golden beets, and a flavorful green romesco sauce. But it was the thick, juicy Black Angus burger with sweet red onion jam and gooey sharp cheddar that had the table swooning. Berkshire pork ribs shellacked in a sweet and tangy balsamic fish sauce made for perfect finger food, but we had higher hopes for the chile-lime salmon, which was a bit lackluster on its bed of curried sweet potato puree. Cocktails are smart and well executed, and the diverse yet approachable wine list includes a nice by-the-glass selection.
