Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden Restaurant Review: Boiler House is nothing if not dramatic; its setting in the space that powered Pearl Brewery in its heyday is alone worth a look-see. And there are a few food items to occupy your other senses as well --- but most of them are small plates and sides such as wild boar meatballs, quail “poppers," some savory mixed mushrooms, and the ubiquitous Brussels sprouts. A deconstructed Caesar salad might not have been grilled as much as expected, but it worked regardless. Other dishes perform less well: a lamb shank was fork-tender, but its offbeat gremolata didn’t click; a boneless center-cut rib-eye gained extra oomph by virtue of an uni-augmented butter but was otherwise unremarkable. However, the buying power of sister restaurant Max’s Wine Dive means that the wine list is more than up to any challenge the oddly-organized menu can throw at it. We expect to spend some lazy summer hours in the outdoor wine garden.
