Legal Sea Food

I forgot to take pictures, but my colleague Mary Jean Harrold and I tried lunch at Legal Sea Food. It is a big-deal family of Boston seafood restaurants that has outposts in other cities, including now Atlanta. Ours is conveniently located ner Georgia Tech, in the Hilton Garden Inn across from the aquarium.

We both had broiled wild salmon, which was excellent. Wild salmon is always more flavorful (when you find real wild salmon, that is, not farm-raised counterfeit stuff) and ours was very well prepared. I am a sucker for blackened fish, but I'm glad I didn't go that route with this meal. I also introduced Mary Jean to the charms of Legal's bon bons, which are chocolate-covered ice cream balls that are hard to resist. One of my Bell Labs colleagues once ate 30 bon bons in one sitting. They don't seem to have low-cost lunches; ours was a full-size portion. But the seafood is good enough that it is worth the expense. Legal Sea Foods on Urbanspoon

  1. I have tried eating at Legal Seafood too on my last trip to Boston. I must say the this is one of the best seafood restaurants in the city. Their wild salmon are the best and I prefer this better than their tuna. I also find their coffee awesome and great tasting. Thanks for sharing with us this post!

  2. Did you have to wait long for a table?

    I remember the bon bons and the Bell Labs person and the blue fish pate and you didn't mention the chowder!
