To celebrate spring, Legal Harborside is throwing open the doors to its patio (complete with an outdoor fireplace) and debuting ten new dishes on their upscale second level menu. Created by executive chef Richard Vellante, starters include a niçoise-style tuna carpaccio served with a quail egg; a foie gras duo with black pepper brioche; and Jonah Crab agnolotti with English peas and guanciale.

Main courses will take advantage of some of New England’s most coveted seasonal produce, like a dish of Atlantic Cod served over grilled ramps, clams, and sorrel; prosciutto wrapped monkfish with asparagus and a Meyer lemon hollandaise; Chesapeake Striped Bass with braised artichokes and confit pork belly; and butter poached lobster with potato gnocchi, fava beans, heirloom carrots, and Limoncello. The new menu will take effect on April 14. See below for all the details.
