Legal Oysteria Restaurant Review

: In the former Olives space, Legal Oysteria is a unique concept of Legal Sea Foods with an Italian flair. Think pizzas cooked in a brick oven (crispy sausage topped with caramelized fennel and fresh ricotta) and a rotisserie grill that churns out such dishes as a roasted half chicken served with cannellini beans. While you won't find traditional Italian fare like chicken Parmesan, in its place are steak pizzaiolo with rosemary potatoes, brick-oven braised cod with a tangy tomato sauce, and linguine with clams that taste best when accompanied by a bottle of red vino from Italy. For dessert, go for the torta caprese, a rich chocolate almond torte finished with tart lemon whipped cream.
