Legacy Records, Hell’s Kitchen, NYC + The Play That Went Wrong

Before theatre, we walked way west to 510 West 38th Street to dine at Legacy Records, run by Delicious Hospitality the company behind Charlie Bird and Pasquale Jones. I suggest Pasquale Jones over Charlie Bird.

At Legacy Records, I tried the Pac Man (basically a Manhattan) made with Sazerac 6-year Rye, Cocchi Americano Rosa and Baines Pacharan de Aranon ($18). We ordered their warm crusty bread that came with sprouted seed bread, cultured butter, salt and rosemary lardo ($8) to nibble while we perused the menu. Be careful about eating too much bread, as it’s that good that you want to.

From what I hear, the crudo is what to have, but I don’t indulge in raw fish. What we did order to start was one of their pastas. The cavatelli verde worked flavorwise of the sausage ragu with fresh mint; sadly the pasta was tough ($26). I wouldn’t recommend.

What I would highly recommend is the lacquered duck ($90), described by Pete Wells (NY Times) as the “breakout star for the restaurant: a duck breast, its skin rubbed with pepper, chiles, honey and fennel and then roasted until it has a deep, crusty bark that a Texas pitmaster would be proud of.”  Yes, that deliciously exquisite.

Ninety dollars sound like a lot but the prices, like the ones at Pasquale Jones but not Charlie Bird, include service making the dish more reasonable. It’s seriously worth the trip if you can get a reservation at this luxury Mediterranean restaurant far west in the city.

Although it’s been around a long time, I hadn’t yet seen The Play That Went Wrong (for a complete review, click here). Pure slapstick, if you like that sort of thing, from the other side of the pond. We sat through the first act, laughed a lot, so appreciated their British comedic expertise and — hate to admit as I almost never do — left at intermission.
