Boilerhouse Rules Where Fords Once Roamed
Boilerhouse, which opened last August, has retained enough of its original factory-deco atmo to make it an eye-filling place to take a meal. The barnlike ceilings, sawtooth skylights, and factory sash windows let in plenty of natural light. Gears, pulleys, chains, and levers accent the dining room, central bar, and open kitchen. The silver-painted old boilers, exposed piping, terrazzo tabletops, and terra cotta flooring give the space a sleek, shiny look; this is a fun place to enjoy all-American brewpub-y fare while you take in the postmodern ambience, the bay views, or the game on the flatscreen TV.
