Legal Raw Opens at Fan Pier on the Waterfront

The latest addition to the Legal Sea Foods family of restaurants is a new outdoor cafe that just opened at Fan Pier on the Boston waterfront.

According to the Fan Pier, Boston Facebook page, Legal Raw is now open on the waterfront by the Fan Pier Cove Marina and the Boston Harborwalk (on the north side of Northern Avenue and just east of the Joseph Moakley Courthouse). The new eatery features such seafood items as littlenecks, lobster rolls, oysters, and shrimp, and beer and wine (as well as cocktails) are available. For those who would rather not dine on seafood, the Fan Pier page mentions that burgers and fries are also offered at Legal Raw.

Legal Raw is one of a number of dining spots in Boston that are part of the Legal family. Legal Sea Foods can be found at Long Wharf, Park Square, Copley Place, the Prudential Center, and Logan Airport, while Legal Test Kitchen can be found in the Seaport District. Several other Legal Sea Foods are located in the Boston area (including two in Cambridge), and a couple of Legal C Bar restaurants can be found at Logan Airport and in Dedham.

The address for this new outdoor cafe on the Boston waterfront is: Legal Raw, 28 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA, 02210.

[August 19, 26 updates: According to the Legal Sea Foods website, Legal Raw closed on August 22. A Twitter message to us from the restaurant indicates that they are keeping mum on any future plans for this unique "pop-up" style restaurant; if/when we hear about Legal Raw returning, we will post another update.]
