Now available for buyout, the Brahmin American Cuisine and Cocktails brings small plates to a quiet side street at the edge of the Back Bay. The two-story space, modeled after a classic turn-of-the-century Boston brownstone, opened in August and seats 180. It can hold 260 for a cocktail reception.

On the upper level, the private Silhouette Room seats 55 or holds 80 standing; a lower-level dining and lounge area seats 35 or holds 65 standing. The lower- level area also offers a private bar. The brick-walled rooms are lined with black-and-white portraits of notable Bostonians and other historic figures; large chandeliers illuminate tufted banquettes and couches. Additionally, a patio with manicured topiaries can be reserved for events.


The space is fully equipped for laptops and DVDs and has five televisions, including one with 60-inch screen that can be obscured by a mirror. 

Menu items include seared scallops with bacon and pan-roasted salmon. Handcrafted cocktails are named for notable Massachusetts families. Signature drinks include the Saltonstall, made with Maker's Mark, raspberry puree, and fresh lime.
