We had dinner last night in the recently opened Engine Room. They did a fabulous design job on the space. It is casual, warm and sophisticated. It feels like a city restaurant, not the typical shoreline eatery. For a restaurant that only opened three months ago, they really have their act together.
The menu was interesting and eclectic. We had delicious humus & pita and calamari for appetizers followed by a substantial and flavorful turkey burger. This is not the frozen patty type of burger place!
I substituted a salad for the fries & loved the salad dressing. It had a unique flavor. My husband had the fries and said they were very good. Engine Room is a farm to table establishment and that comes through loud and clear in the interesting flavors.
They have a large bar area with comfortable seating and a large variety of beer on tap as well as bourbon.
We ate in the restaurant section which overlooks the kitchen. Real foodies can sit watching the meal preparation. Surprisingly there is little noise from the packed bar area although it is right around the corner. Engine Room is a very neat place.
