The flagship of the Boston-based Legal Sea Foods empire, Legal Harborside is notable for two things in addition to its praiseworthy seafood: its size (at 20,000 square feet, it's the biggest restaurant in Boston) and its location (in the hopping Seaport District, which sprang up seemingly overnight out of what were previously gravel parking lots and freight yards). Most seats in the three-level restaurant offer standout water views. The first floor is a casual all-day clam shack with a bar and fish market. The second is a fine-dining restaurant. The third is a (mostly covered) roof deck with a raw bar and a menu of sandwiches and salads. Legal Harborside is hugely popular, especially with the after-work crowd, but tables turn over fairly quickly. If you're feeling adventurous, stop by Legal Test Kitchen, right across the street: Better known to the locals as LTK, it's where Legal Sea Foods tests new dishes (225 Northern Ave.; 617-330-7430).—Jon Marcus
