A new restaurant, The Boiler House and Wine Garden, will open next year at the Pearl. Connected to the landmark Pearl Brewery smokestack, The Boiler House will feature approximately 6,000 square feet of restaurant space along with an expansive outdoor patio. Most of the original architectural elements will remain intact, and the original boilers will be incorporated into the design and construction of the bar and kitchen areas. A mezzanine will feature private dining tables overlooking the bar and seating areas below. The patio will have communal tables, a fire pit, and an area for live music performances. The cuisine at The Boiler House will be based on Texas ranch-style grilling – with wild game, seafood, and fresh local ingredients. There also will be a late-night menu featuring smaller plates. Items will range from grilled octopus, lamb meatballs, and pork spare ribs to a dry-aged New York Strip or 32-ounce Tomahawk Rib-eye. These dishes will be paired with a wide variety of wines from around the world – all available by the glass. The wines will also be available for take-home purchase through The Black Door, a “wine community” concept first introduced into San Antonio by The Boiler House’s sister restaurant, MAX’s Wine Dive in the Quarry Village. Jerry Lasco is founder and CEO of Lasco Enterprises, which owns and operates MAX’s Wine Dive, The Black Door, and The Boiler House.
