Description: Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating.

“Good Food Great Drinks”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Get there early, as the place gets crowded fast. The food is very good and the drinks were great, not watered down!

“Funky with a YOUNGER BEAT”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The dining area butts to the bar area and as it was a hockey playoff night versus the hated enemy Habs, it was crowded in the bar and noisy. At least the screens were visible so one could look up at the cheers and jeers. Our third visit there. The food is not as seafood oriented as their other establishments, and they do test-drive new offerings to see how they fly. The scallops were nearly perfectly sautéed. The fish "stew" was fabulous. Table next to us had nearly all of them with the fish tacos, which looked delicious and they said was their regular food choice.

“Great lobster”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We had lunch here while in Boston and the food was lovely. It was very busy the day we visited due to graduations but the staff were really nice and found us a table outside.The staff were so friendly and told us the daily specials. I decided on steamed lobster and a lobster salad for my husband. Fab food and great service.

Lively atmosphere, great service, delicious food! I had the lobster wrap, Im not a wrap fan and rarely eat them but this was very good, lobster, bacon, avocado, chipotle sauce wrapped in a flat bread. I also had the lettuce wraps which where very good! Tender marinated beef with just a touch of Kim chi for a little spice - soooo good! Bananas foster for dessert, rich vanilla ice cream rich caramel sauce, just right bananas. Friend had paella, beautiful presentation, full flavored, very good
Would definitely return here!

“Great service, great food!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

We were a large group of 15 and LTK had great food. They accommodated us at the last minute and split the checks! Some of the food was the same as the normal Legals, but some other great dishes as well.
