Housed in a historic chandlery—a supply warehouse for ships—this three-story restaurant delivers New American fare to the FiDi. Slide into a green-and-burgundy banquette for dishes turned out by chef Stephen Woods: Berkshire pork chops and marinated peppers; asparagus risotto with a poached egg and aged Parm; and cornmeal-crusted skate in caramelized pineapple. Seafood towers come piled with offerings from both coasts, including littleneck clams, diver scallops and Prince Edward Island mussels. Bartenders pour classic cocktails, wines and craft beers from a 30-seat walnut bar on the first floor, but whiskey enthusiasts should head to the brick-lined cellar, where they showcase 50 small-batch sips from Irish and American producers.
