Legal Test Kitchen (LTK), a Legal Sea Foods concept, ventures into uncharted waters and pushes the boundaries of innovation in premium food and drink. Multicultural dining options and inspired seasonal cocktails cast a wide net in attracting those who have an appetite for fun. <br /><br /><br /><br />Located in the Seaport District, our restaurant is within easy walking distance to the Institute of Contemporary Art, the World Trade Center, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, the Bank of America Pavilion and hotels including the Renaissance Boston, Westin Waterfront and Seaport. LTK is both a destination and neighborhood hangout and our extended hours of operation make us a late night lure. <br /><br /><br /><br />In season, you can eat sea fare while smelling the salt air in our patio seating. <br />

"Headed to LTK with a group while in Boston for a conference. The calamari was wonderful and the open faced crab cake sandwich is worth returning to Boston."

"We dropped in for lunch after a tour in Georgetown. I had the Honey Pot Fried Chicken and my companion tried the Crab Cake Sandwich. Both entrees were enjoyed, though the grits with mine were a bit cold. The restaurant was pretty loud, including the music, for 2:30pm. The service was good, though not the fastest - great if you were with someone you want to talk with. The food was tasty and every plate the waitstaff walked by with looked worth trying the next time."

"My husband and I met a friend for dinner and always enjoy Old Town Alexandria. The beer selection at Virtue is extensive (in the right ways). The avocado/hummus dip we had for an appetizer was fine, but not exceptional. I had the Skirt Steak, which was delicious. My husband tried the Wagyu burger and didn't mind it, but wasn't raving about it. Our friend tried the seafood on special and enjoyed it but didn't find it worth writing home about."

Boiler House Texas Grill & Wine Garden is a true Texas original. Situated in the historic Pearl Brewery complex on the San Antonio River Walk, this wine-centric restaurant occupies the former “boiler house” which powered the adjacent brewery. The menu focuses on grilled items from local farms and markets, with a focus on “Texas ranch-style” cuisine. These delicacies are paired with extraordinary wines from around the world (all available by the glass, bottle and “to-go”), live music and a casual yet energetic atmosphere. The unique list of wines features pricing based on a “retail” model, and boasts some of the lowest prices in the area.<br /><br />The restaurant incorporates various private dining areas suitable for private or corporate functions and an expansive outdoor patio area where guests can enjoy dining alfresco. Catering is also available at the restaurant or at a location of your choice.

"I met a friend for dinner at The Boiler House who was delayed a few minutes and they seated me before she arrived. The waitress was not particularly pleasant until there were two of us. I ordered an IPA from Blanco and enjoyed it, but there was at least an inch of foam in the glass for each round she brought me. We ordered the popcorn, grits, spetzel risotto and quail skewers. All of the food was worth a return trip."

Bruce Auden's award-winning BIGA ON THE BANKS is located in a spectacular setting in downtown San Antonio's modern International Center. Overlooking a romantic tree-canopied bend in the river, the historic and the new find common ground in Biga's dynamic re-emergence with ultra contemporary cuisine propelling San Antonio's recent ascent to a new level of River Walk dining. Gourmet Magazine named Biga one of the five best restaurants in Texas. Fine dining has never meant "fussy" to Chef Auden. Biga's ambiance is casual and relaxed - San Antonio style. Auden's celebrated culinary background, coupled with creative and energetic design, has marked Biga on the Banks as one of Texas' truly outstanding restaurants.

"I brought two companions for a business dinner. We ordered the cheese plate to start and felt it was pretty near perfect. One of us ordered the chicken, another the lamb, and a third the pasta option. All the dishes were tasty and the service was extraordinary. Unfortunately we didn't have room for dessert."

"I brought a business contact who loves Old Town Alexandria to lunch at Virtue and we were seated outdoors (they offered, we agreed). However, I hadn't paid attention to the weather forecast. We ordered tasty drinks and food and were enjoying our conversation when it started to sprinkle. They opened the umbrellas over the tables, but before too long we had to move inside. They then put us at the bar, which would have been fine with a friend but was a bit awkward with a business contact."

"Visiting Frederick with a friend, we headed to Family Meal for dinner. We started with beverages and 2/3 of us ordered adult milkshakes. Both the Irish Coffee and Strawberry Rhubarb milkshakes were delicious. We continued with the chicken pot pie fritters (very tasty) and hoecakes (which had some issues, specifically the bacon in them was hard as a rock and being such a thick dice meant we were left with inedible bacon that hurt if you had the misfortune of trying to bite down on it). We mentioned the bacon issue to the server, even showing it to him and he said, "Thank you for the feedback. I'll let them know." We still had to pay for those.
Hotcakes (BFD), a burger, and Fried Chicken Dinner rounded out the meal - all enjoyed thoroughly.
