Savory chowders and lobster rolls don’t just jump out of the water when you live in Atlanta. In fact, a resignation to embrace a deserving seafood restaurant may derive of necessity.
For non-Bostonians, a New England visit almost inevitably involves an obligatory Legal Seafood pilgrimage. Sadly, quality is a non-factor at a “powerhouse” chain like this, particularly one that seems to relax comfortably on its laurels. The signature lobster roll exemplifies this by assessing a $23 fee for the chewy, menial amount of mollusk presented. Additionally, a san-seasoned clam chowder, without its burdensome grit, regrettably renders another signature dish remarkably thin. In fact, to pass off such substandard servings in a city whose abundance is less notable than that of this namesake’s feels a bit insulting. As such, to dispense said provisions should certainly be illegal.
