It's 10:30 p.m. on a Friday, and 88 Wharf in Lower Mills in Milton is swinging. There's a girls'-night-out party making noise, and the restaurant has run out of both bread and rose wine oh, the hazards of eating late but the mushroom soup arrives hot and creamy, and dishes like lobster risotto show that someone in the kitchen is having fun. His name is Robert Fecteau. In the few months since the chef (formerly of Aujourd'hui and Woodward at the Ames Hotel) has taken over, he's given this spot a new sheen.
> Kitchen closes at 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 the rest of the week
