Ensconced on the second floor of a waterfront hotel in a space so minimalist it seems half-furnished, Meritage can produce an odd sense of dislocation, both from downtown Boston and in general. So much the better for losing yourself in the experience Daniel Bruce's artful, enocentric menu affords, we say. Listing its dishes according to the type of wine they're designed to complement, it's foolproof yet flexible, and educational rather than dogmatic. (Granted, its portion-to-price ratio may end up teaching spendthrifts a less pleasant lesson.)
