Gotham Bar & Grill Alum Opens Seafood Brasserie
Chef Jason Hall — previously of Gotham Bar & Grill — opened his newest project, legasea, on Thursday, October 12. legasea, a seafood brasserie updates the classic seafood dining experience by serving up local, sustainable dishes in a modern and vivacious atmosphere. The menu employs seafood from across the globe, taking inspiration from Italy, Japan, New England and Spain.
Legasea is located within the new Moxy Times Square hotel (485 7th Avenue). legasa’s menu includes the Clam Bake (lobster, clams, scallops, corn, new potatoes), an impressive raw bar, large market-driven salads, and entrées such as Prime Rib and Crispy Chatham Cod, a twist on the classic fish & chips. The design of the restaurant amplifies the convivial vibe.
Guests will be greeted by a spacious atrium whose globe pendant lamps float beneath a generous skylight. A myriad of colored tiles, polished copper and leather accents provide a warm, tactile environment with subtle nods to nautical themes. The elegant 20-seat private dining room has a woven cane ceiling, painted lacquered wall panels, and embossed leather chairs.
