Strongly tied to American music, Legacy Kitchen recently opened at the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Girod streets in New Orleans. The restaurant is serving up inventive takes on classic American dishes like Fried Chicken and Waffles or the East Hampton Lobster Roll, with craft bartenders preparing classic cocktails like the perfect Old Fashioned and signature Legacy Smash, which takes advantage of strawberry season.
