If you live in Boston, you've definitely heard of Legal Sea Foods, but there's a new restaurant in town: Legal Oysteria. Located in Charlestown, this restaurant is a new concept for Legal- they're catering to the locals and creating amazing menus that go beyond typical seafood fare.
Neal and I checked out the new neighborhood joint recently and we were impressed! The name is deceiving- this is not an oyster bar. Rather, the name plays on the Italian word "Osteria", which means a place serving wine and simple food. Northern Italian fare dominates the menu- We dined on pan roasted salmon with marinated zucchini, steak pizzaiolo, and a selection of incredible Italian wines. When you go, follow our lead and don't skip dessert! The flourless chocolate cake and the panna cotta were both incredibly delicious.
On weekdays, the restaurant fills up fast with post 9-to-fivers, so make a reservation!
