Upstairs from RM Seafood, Rx Boiler Room, which opened in July 2013, combines the alchemy of food and drink as Moonen's menu creates a spin on classic comfort food with a creative and cutting-edge experience. The decor is unique in that is a steampunk-inspired space. It starts with industrial hardware, features swooping velveteen fabrics and an interactive bar that exposes all of the alchemist tools unique to carefully concocting Rx Boiler Room libations. Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, based on an alternate history of the 19th century's British Victorian era.
