Arson is the sister restaurant to NIU Kitchen, and is just a few doors down from its sibling. The dishes here are showier and, as the name implies, many of them come into contact with fire at some point before you eat them. If you order the charbroiled oyster (and you should), your server will singe them with hot coals at the table. The tender scallops carpaccio receive a blow torch shower tableside, and the salt-baked dorada gets a damn Viking funeral in front of the whole dining room. There are more misses than at the unanimously excellent NIU Kitchen, but it’s still a cool spot, and you can still get a very good meal here with a side of pyrotechnics.
