• Seafood • Downtown Crossing
Booked 59 times today
Legal Sea Foods began in 1950 as a fish market in the Inman Square neighborhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts. It’s here that the “Legal” name became synonymous with quality and freshness. In 1968, our first seafood restaurant opened, right next to the fish market. The fish was simply prepared, either broiled or fried, and served on paper plates at communal picnic tables. Despite the low-key trappings, the food was second to none and word quickly spread. This early success led to further expansion and now, six decades later with restaurants along the Eastern Seaboard, the commitment to freshness and quality endures: "If it isn't fresh, it isn't Legal!”

Discover Downtown Crossing

In a city that is synonymous with foods like baked beans and cream pie, it’s no surprise that Boston’s Downtown Crossing is full of wonderful restaurants that have perfected American dining staples. Located between Boston’s bustling financial district and Boston Common, this little slice of the city is home to residents who are fortunate to live in proximity to numerous coffee shops, pubs, and cocktail bars. Seafood and steak dishes are plentiful here, but the real heart of Downtown Crossing is in Boston’s homegrown, and distinctly American, food, like lobster rolls and clam chowder. These uniquely American flavors and more await all comers in one of the oldest cities in the United States.
