Legacy Records, the new all-day restaurant from the Charlie Bird team in Hudson Yards, is finally ready for public consumption, open tonight for pastas, crudos, and other Mediterranean fare in a highly designed space.
The luxe restaurant at 517 West 38th St., between 10th and 11th avenues, has been showing itself off to friends and family for the last month, hosting parties and private events in the Ken Fulk-designed space. But starting today, anyone can walk on it to experience the downstairs cafe, called Easy Victor, and the restaurant from chef Ryan Hardy — and later this month an upstairs cocktail and wine lounge from major wine guys Robert Bohr, Grant Reynolds, and Arvid Rosengren and PDT head bartender Jeff Bell, too. Food includes pastries in the morning and lots of seafood and pasta at night, while drinks focus on Old World wine, classic cocktails, and experimental iterations.
Despite being in a still-pretty-barren area of Manhattan, Legacy Records has managed to already attract plenty of industry members and celebrities into the luxury luggage-inspired interior. It’s now open to all Tuesday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., while Easy Victor is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
