Plans to Open Sam's at Liberty 22 on Boston's Waterfront Fall Through

Last year, we reported that a restaurant on the Boston waterfront that had been connected to a high-end clothing shop was planning to reopen in a new space next door after the shop shut down. Now we have learned that this will no longer be happening.

According to an article from Eater Boston, plans for Sam's at Louis to move and become Sam's at Liberty 22 have fallen through, with an Instagram post from its sister restaurant The Maiden saying "With heavy hearts, we'd like to share with you that our sister restaurant @sams22liberty will remain closed. We had hoped to reopen this beloved restaurant on the waterfront this year, but despite everyone's best efforts the process became too overwhelming for our small, family-driven team." The note goes on to say that the Sam's team is now working at The Maiden, which Esti Parsons, her husband Drew, and Drew's brother Jon opened on West Broadway in South Boston in December.

Louis used to be located on Berkeley Street in Boston's Back Bay before moving to Northern Avenue on the waterfront in the winter of 2009/2010, with Sam's opening there a few months later. The restaurant was an upscale casual place known in part for its patio that had memorable views of Boston Harbor.
