When fine-dining restaurant rm Upstairs closed in 2009, Rick Moonen said it was only a temporary hiatus. He's now rebranding the space as Rx Boiler Room, which will feature "a supper club atmosphere with a steampunk laboratory feel." The menu is an homage to comfort foods, with dishes like chicken-pot-pie nuggets, inside-out French onion grilled cheese, and braised oxtail croquettes. This is the golden age of the croquette, folks. [Forbes]
