It seems to me, 75 Main has been around as long as I can remember, and it is also seems like it is always reinventing itself. This time, I can say with some confidence, after speaking with the new owner, Zach Erdem, that they got it right!

Zach, came here only eight years ago from Turkey, and as soon as he arrived, the first place he stumbled upon was 75 Main, where he quickly landed a job as a bartender. Fast forward eight years, and his dream to be the owner, has just come true. He brings with him a younger, hipper vibe, maybe one he acquired while working as a manager at Nello’s for six years. Hence, a more modern, cleaner aesthetic was created with a display of great photograpy, by Raphael Inazzucco and Chris Brown, that definitely contributes to the relaxed sophistication and atmosphere at 75 Main.

Just drive down Main Street on any given afternoon, and you will see it is the busiest restaurant in town. With it’s fresh seasonal menu, white tablecloths, classical music and the best place to people watch, East of Manhattan that is. If you are not at the beach, well this is where to see and be seen while enjoying a selection from their great lunch menu of soups, salads, paninis, burgers, pasta, seafood and steak entrees.

Chef Mathew Lewis, formerly of George Martins, keeps the patrons coming back for more, day and night, before the party gets started. With Tequila Night, every Tuesday, and $2 shots, Thursdays is Ladies night with complimentary drinks between 10-11:30pm, Friday a guest DJ from NYC spins and Saturday is St. Tropez Night, with DJ Lee Kalt running the party.

Stay tuned, when Zach opens his new restaurant, ultra nightclub & lounge, called Zeyno’s, in the MPD, an 8,000 sq. ft bi-level space right next door to Bagatelle….Manhattan & the Hampton-the best of both worlds collide!
