Legal Seafoods (Long Wharf)

178 State Street, Boston, MA 02109, USA


See Website

Legal Seafoods is a Boston institution, and while there are now many locations (still mostly in Massachusetts) a trip to Boston warrants a trip to Legal Sea Foods. It’s nothing fancy, and diners looking for a fine-dining experience should steer clear, but it’s about as Boston as it gets. The clam chowder is legendary and has apparently been served regularly at presidential inaugurations since 1981. Other outposts can be found in Copley Place, Harborside, Kendall Square and Park Square, among others.
