Fodor's Review

An 1818 rum distillery houses this distinctive restaurant—look for the timber ceilings, African granite from slave ship ballast in the walls, and framed sections of early-19th-century graffiti-covered plaster. Chef Sai Viswanath reinvents traditional New England fare by combining it with Indian preparations to create dishes like lobster roasted in a 900ºF tandoor oven and seafood stew simmered in a coconut, coriander, star anise, and mustard-seed broth. Save room for the homemade ice cream. Alfresco dining on the second-story back deck at sunset is one of summer's great pleasures; in winter, ask to reserve Table 36 near the fireplace in the upstairs dining room.
