Dry Aged Beef Ribeye, Spigarello, Chanterelles, garlic

Some early reviews of Legacy Records tout this new eatery from the Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones team as pretty but lacking substance. (kind of like me)

Well, that was my take away from it. I actually just Googled it again to make sure and only see rave reviews. So, clearly I have no clue what I’m talking about.

Best to click away while you can. Click far, far away.

While the place certainly is gorgeous, I wouldn’t call a place with great cocktails and an amazing rib eye as lacking substance.

Sure, the chestnut and duck pasta was unique but not necessarily delicious and the hand pulled mozzarella had a nice flavor going on but needed some kind of bread or crostini to go with it. And maybe a little salt.

The steak came perfectly cooked, sliced for her pleasure and topped in a gorgeous sauce that reminded me of a Chimichurri. I’m sure it was actually something much more exotic than that.

I would say this would be a great place to meet for drinks and either a meaningless nibble just to fill the belly or actually go for the steak like you mean it.

The place is located in a sort of deserted southern section of Hells Kitchen, right near (or maybe directly in) what will soon be (or already is) Hudson Yards.

(I should probably just delete that garbled paragraph above and save all of you a lot of heartache.)***
