Making its debut tonight at the Little Italy outpost of Ballast Point Brewing Company is a new restaurant within a restaurant: The Kettle Room. In the space behind the brewing system that has hosted previous beer dinners, Ballast Point is launching a intimate dining room that will now be open five nights a week (Sunday through Thursday) with its own chef-driven menu by executive sous chef Devin Woodall, banquet sous chef Rocio Fleckenstein and executive chef Colin MacLaggan alongside dedicated table service from general manager Giorgio Saturnino’s staff. Designed to offer a customizable dining experiences ranging from small get-togethers to special occasion dinners, The Kettle Room’s backdrop is a large-scale version of a Red Velvet Nitro Oatmeal Stout beer label created by Ballast Point’s longtime artist Paul Elder.

Operating from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, restaurant reservations are now available online with the last reservation accepted at 8:30 p.m. A full beer and wine list is offered, with suggested beer pairings for each a la carte course; there’s also a Chef’ Whim prix-fixe menu for $55 or $75 with beer pairings.
