Legacy Hall, one of the nation’s largest and most unique food halls is dedicated to serving the best-of food trends prepared by premier chefs and local artisans. The three-story, 55,000-square-foot European-style food hall, brewery and live music and entertainment venue is now open in Plano’s acclaimed Legacy West development and was named USA Today’s 2019 2nd Best Food Hall in the U.S.
Like the food hall’s cuisine, the architecture is simple, honest and well crafted. Raw wood, concrete, steel, modified shipping containers, exposed ductwork, conduits and pipes are all carefully and purposefully arranged to create a functional artistic expression of what a building is.
Legacy Hall: Dine, Drink, and Discover
Legacy Hall has an eclectic collection of 15+ artisanal food stalls on ground level, featuring everything from elevated Neapolitan pizzas, duck fried chicken and Baja-style tacos, to worldly selections like shawarma, yakitori and bao steam buns. Also on the first floor, Blush Wine Bar features a robust list of more than 80 wines carefully selected by an in-house, level-two sommelier, who will provide wine education and recommendations. The cozy, adults-only space will also offer plenty of comfortable seating. To see the full list of food stalls and the chefs and restaurateurs behind them, visit legacyfoodhall.com/food-stalls.
