Hey TAT Family!
I found my Foodie Heaven in Dallas at Legacy Hall, the newest addition to Legacy West in Plano. The hall, which opened in December 2017, is the first of its kind in North Texas, and like many other Texans, I had been anticipating the opening since I first read about it.
Legacy Hall is a European theme food hall that has over 30 unique food and beverage stalls offering cuisine from all over the world. It also has an in-house brewery and multiple bars, which serve specialty cocktails and craft beers.
The restaurants in the hall are miniature versions of existing and new concepts from some well-known local chefs. Chef Tiffany Derry from Bravo’s Top Chef serves her famous Duck Fat Fried Chicken with some other savory dishes at Roots Chicken Shak. Another local favorite, Celebrity Chef John Tesar from the acclaimed steakhouse Knife, who is a four-time James Beard semifinalist, also serves his famous burgers at Knife Burger in the Legacy Hall.
In addition to everything situated within the Legacy Hall, an outdoor venue called The Box Garden is under construction, and is scheduled to open Spring 2018. The Box Garden, will host live music, festivals, concerts, and other outdoor events.
I have been to the food hall a few times since it opened in December 2017. Here are the Tish Around Town Tips (#TATTip) for tackling the hall:
- Bring a foodie buddy or come with a group – Bringing a foodie buddy is highly recommended so that you can share and try more things during your visit. This will allow you to enjoy our own international smorgasbord.
- Bring your credit/debit card – The stalls at the food hall are cashless, so you have to pay with a credit/debit card or a Hall Pass. You can bring cash, but you will have to load it to a Hall Pass that can be purchased at a kiosk at the hall.
- Come with an open palate – The variety of cuisines in the food hall gives you the opportunity to try a variety of international dishes along with some American favorites. China, Italy, India, Japan, Mexico and beyond are all represented in the hall, so come prepared to try them all.
- Walk around before deciding on a meal – Make sure you take a lap around the hall before picking your meal. You can easily mix and match items from multiple stalls to create the perfect meal and enhance your experience.
