Jack Jarukasem worked his way through the ranks at Caesars Entertainment (where he oversaw the Rio's famous seafood buffet), and is now following his own vision at The Legends Oyster Bar. The menu focuses heavily on seafood in a modest, aquatic-themed dining room. Oysters and raw scallops are highlights of the raw bar, but stick to hot food for delivery and to-go orders. You can't go wrong with the pan roast of lobster, crab, and shrimp in a creamy tomato sauce, gumbo in deconstructed form, or a Louisiana-style seafood boil. Jarukasem balances his creativity with flavorful takes on familiar dishes, including lightly fried calamari and New England Clam Chowder in a bread bowl.
