Legends Restaurant has reopened (as of 5/25) after a substantial four-month renovation project by owners Diane and Dennis Harkoff.
The entire space, first established in 1993, was closed in November of 2010 and reconstructed during the interim to fix obstruction issues (with a heightened ceiling and larger windows, Cutchogue Harbor and Peconic Bay are now visible from the restaurant’s interior, providing a “panoramic view,” said Diane Harkoff) and improve handicap accessibility.
Upgrades also included the installation of a new six-line draft tower, increasing their tower totel to four.
The pub area now features 21 taps (16 are labeled as craft beers) and 200+ bottles.
With sweet citrus, pine, and a moderately bitter judo chop (POW) at swallow, Ballast Point Brewing Company Sculpin IPA paired mad nice with the Egyptian Style Dukkah Shrimp (spice mixture of ground pecans, coriander, cumin, pepper, and fennel; red quinoa and eggplant timbale; ancho chili aioli and blood-orange coulees drizzle), Tuna Napoleon (raw tuna with miso-ginger vinaigrette and seaweed salad between crispy wontons) and Oysters Miguel (baked with spinach, chipotle, tequila, and Parmigiano-Reggiano) for app-lunchies.
And for dessert: Pistachio Semifreddo with Chocolate Ganache, a semi-frozen, ice cream-like pistachio mousse, and Widmer Brothers Brewing Company Pitch Black IPA.
