A few more details came out about the renovations coming to RM Seafood's second floor space at Mandalay Place once it closes on May 3. When it reopens in June, it will be called Rx Boiler Room, a nod to chef Rick Moonen's love for Thomas Edison, H.G. Wells, Jules Verne and steampunk and a sort of lab where he will conjure up dishes and cocktails.
Gone are the white tablecloths, replaced with communal dining on reclaimed wood tables. The bar gets an overhaul with gears and cogs, giving the space more of a lab feel. Lead bartender Nathan Greene will serve up cocktails from beakers, flasks and barrels.
Remaining, Moonen's commitment to sustainable seafood with some farm-to-table thrown in for good measure.
The concept is far more casual than RM Seafood, almost competing with the downstairs space, which will undergo its own transformation once Rx Boiler Room opens.
