Columbia Firehouse is a stunning late Victorian relic, a former working firehouse made of dark wood, iron, brick, and glass. It’s been reborn as an upscale brasserie and bar, serving a New American menu that draws on the building’s history. Local oysters, charcuterie, Angus burgers, steaks, scallops, classic cocktails, beer . . . it’s timeless food reinvented for the 21st century, and most visitors love it, calling portions reasonable and service solid. The four-level dining area gets packed, so reservations are essential, especially on weekends. Dinner entrees average around $20, making it a great special occasion destination.
