Starting tomorrow, Legal Crossing (Legal Seafoods’ newish Downtown Crossing concept) will debut an overhauled menu influenced partially by its vicinity to Chinatown. In addition to Legal’s standard chowders, oysters, and crab cakes, Legal Crossing will be introducing lunch items like a pork belly banh mi; Nabeyaki udon with miso broth, salmon, and shrimp; and sides such as baby bok choy with XO sauce.

New dinner dishes are much more fall oriented with autumnal produce and heartier fare such as a lobster pizzetta with wild mushrooms and bacon; a roasted cod with pickled grapes, caramelized butternut squash, and brown butter; a double cut pork chop with sweet potato mascarpone mash; and butternut squash risotto.

Below are the full lunch and dinner menus:
