Legacy Kitchen Restaurant Review: What once was a tired old Shoney's has been hollowed out, redesigned and reborn as Legacy Kitchen. From a fully refashioned exterior to a smartly designed interior, there is not a visible trace left of the former establishment. This incarnation of the building features an open floor plan and a wide open kitchen. The "refined American comfort food" is exemplified by such dishes as duck confit chili and Gulf fish served with a crawfish cornbread casserole. You will know you're in New Orleans when you taste the spicy fried chicken and waffles with a side of turtle soup. There are also a number of items for vegans, including a distinctive veggie burger melt with Vidalia onions and kale slaw (which is much tastier than it sounds). No real New Orleans meal is complete without a slice of lemon ice box pie, but its chief rival is probably the double chocolate bread pudding with bourbon cream. Wine selection is limited but adequate, especially since all are available by the glass, and the prices are very reasonable.
