Legacy Records is hip personified—down to every last detail. Its art deco interior is defined by gold-accented trim, tile floors, and burgundy leather-topped tables. Cocktails are smartly divided into styles, namely light beginning, weightier middle, or stout nightcap.
The dishes are remarkable and treated with great care. The menu may meander the Med, but its soul is Italian. Crudi run the gamut—red snapper with cilantro-citrus emulsion and bay scallop are solid stunners. Torchio tossed with giant surf clam, saffron, and lemon balm has a terrific bite, but they save the best for last here, with an intriguing and seductive meringata with a boozy, black pepper-infused Venezuelan rum cake.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
