The Seaport’s 75 on Courthouse Square, which opened at 60 Seaport Blvd. in January, has closed after just seven months.
The spacious, casual restaurant that served American and New England standard dishes, was on the second floor of One Seaport, the new mixed-use development of condos, apartments, and shops at 60 Seaport Blvd. Other entertainment occupants include the Italian-themed Tuscan Kitchen, Kings Dining and Entertainment, and the ShowPlace Icon movie theater.
A statement issued by the One Seaport developers, WS Development, reads, “We and the 75 Courthouse Square team have agreed that an alternate approach to the space that has been occupied by 75 Courthouse Square would better serve the growing Seaport neighborhood. As a result, this space will be transitioning to a different concept in the coming months.”
75 on Courthouse Square was part of the well-established restaurant group Hampshire House Corporation, which was founded by property developer Thomas A. Kershaw. Kershaw oversees Hampshire House, the Beacon Hill townhouse now best known as Cheers Beacon Hill after the 1980s TV program based on the building’s original Bull and Finch bar. Cheers Faneuil Hall, Kershaw’s longstanding Beacon Hill restaurant 75 Chestnut, and the Seaport bar 75 on Liberty Wharf complete the portfolio.
