Nix's Mate


Because nothing impresses hotel guests like alluring tales of dead pirates hanging from the gallows, the folks behind the Sea Dog Brew Pub opened Nix's Mate, a lounge/ eatery slinging cocktails and New England farm/ ocean table fare in the FiDi Hilton's former Caliterra. The new name comes from the infamous wee Boston Harbor Island where pirate chief William Fly's body was gibbeted to serve as a warning to pirates, and to make others look up the word "gibbeted".
