Healthy Choices While Dining Out: 75 on Liberty Wharf

Healthy Choices While Dining Out: 75 on Liberty Wharf

220 Northern Ave.
Boston, MA

(617) 227-0754

While I try to be objective in my reviews, there are biases creeping in.  For example, almost anything in the Liberty Wharf area in the Seaport District is a hit because of the waterfront location.  Places like Del Frisco’s and Legal Harborside are thriving, while some of the old guard get ready to go.

On a recent wintry Saturday, Yvonne and I spent an evening enjoying dinner and some adult beverages while overlooking the fish pier.  I was fascinated watching the road crews scoop up piles of snow and truck it away, wondering about the environmental impact that would come from a few shovels of snow going into the harbor.  (These are heady times.)

As we enjoyed some wine, we reviewed the menu and found it offered a variety of fresh seafood AND Gluten Free choices.

The menu had a number of entrees on the healthier side of the ledger, including Steamed Mussels, Atlantic Cod Filet, Seafood Stew, and Meyer Lemon Chicken Breast.

On this particular evening, we enjoyed the Char-Grilled Atlantic Salmon Filet, “served with roasted organic lentils, sautéed spinach, wild mushrooms, crispy polenta, grilled asparagus and roasted red pepper coulis.”  This dish included many highly recommended healthy options (salmon, lentils and spinach), and was light, yet flavorful.

I can’t honestly say I’m a big salmon fan, yet I found the preparation and presentation of this dish very enjoyable.  Grilled asparagus is one of my favorites, and these large crisp spears were particularly delicious.  The polenta had an interesting presentation and delightful taste.  The two patrons sitting next to us ordered the same entrée after seeing ours delivered and hearing our comments!

Overall, 75 on Liberty Wharf is one of my absolute favorites in the Liberty Wharf area.  I rue the day the summer arrives and lines form outside this little find of a restaurant.  Until then, saddle up and make the trip into town.  You’ll be happy you did.
