No, it's not your imagination; the glowing ceiling is changing colors. The rest of the restaurant, located inside of the Charles Hotel, shares the same futuristic aesthetic. Lights are reflected on the slick white floor, while diners sit at leather banquettes separated by planters full of wheatgrass, all surrounded by walls festooned with oversized prints of plants. The menu reflects a similarly modern bent, weaving Asian influences into contemporary American cuisine like the grilled Angus strip steak with peat shoot tops and ginger soy; miso cod with bok choy and carrot-ginger emulsion and beef short ribs with fried eggs and steamed rice. There also is a more casual menu of burgers and sandwiches. The bi-level space can sometimes resemble a club, with people sitting on the top-story bar sipping specialty cocktails like the i.Tini (Absolut Acai, lychee, cranberry juice) and the black tea mojito.—Keith Wagstaff
