Last month, a bit of Beacon Hill came to Liberty Wharf when a sister to that neighborhood’s 75 Chestnut opened on the waterfront. (Owner Thomas A. Kershaw also operates Cheers.) 75 on Liberty Wharf shares a chef, Markus Ripperger, with 75 Chestnut. The harbor view, however, is an additional benefit.
On the menu are New England bistro classics, incorporating local seafood and other ingredients. Diners will find clam chowder, crab cakes, and BLT wedge salads, along with pumpkin ravioli, seafood stew, steak sandwiches, and porterhouse pork chops. (A half-dozen items are designated gluten-free.) Desserts include cheesecake, brownies, and a pumpkin tart. 75 on Liberty Wharf is open for dinner, lunch, and brunch. For those who need motivation to get out of bed, there is a make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. In addition to beer and wine, the regular cocktail menu showcases drinks made from organic liquor, hot beverages, and mocktails.
The restaurant’s interior is modern, filled with chocolate browns and twinkling lights. Heat lamps and blankets can help take the chill off patio dining. The restaurant is a departure from the grand scale of nearby establishments such as Legal Harborside and Del Frisco’s. 75 on Liberty Wharf is smaller and cozier, but it offers the same great view.
