One Seafood Way
Boston, MA 02210
CEO: Roger Berkowitz
Legal Seafoods operates an upscale seafood restaurant chain with 33 locations from Massachusetts to Florida. There are 14 restaurants in the Boston area with four at Logan Airport.
The restaurants offer a wide variety of
the freshest seafood each day including salmon, oysters, lobsters,
clams, shrimp, king crab legs and haddock. Most locations offer
private dining for special events and corporate customers.
The company has recently introduced Legal's Test Kitchen, a smaller version of the restaurants at Logan Airport and the Seaport, and Legal C Bar, which offers specialty cocktails and seafood menu.
Legal Seafoods is a family-owned company.
Since 1950 when George Berkowitz opened
his fish market next to his father's grocery store in Inman Square
in Cambridge, MA, the "Legal" name has been synonymous
with quality and freshness. This humble seafood market was named
after his father Harry's "Legal Cash Market" where
customers were given "Legal Stamps" (forerunners of
S&H green stamps) with their purchases.
In 1968, the Berkowitz family opened its
first seafood restaurant, 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 spread quickly.
This early success paved the way for the family philosophy: Legal
must remain primarily a fish company, though also in the restaurant
business. Legal Sea Foods was born from these modest beginnings.
