For those who can’t decide on where to dine, Legacy Food Hall has it all. In this one-of-a-kind artisanal food hall at Legacy West, visitors can wander over 20 stalls to meet local purveyors and sample everything from lobster rolls and sushi to old fashioned hamburgers and duck fat fried chicken. There is also has an on-site brewery and an outdoor entertainment stage great for private events. Legacy Hall was even named the #2 best new food hall in the nation by USA Today in 2019.

Legacy West’s shopping offerings run the gamut from fashion to furnishings to cosmetics and even cars. (Think Tesla!) Its luxury retailers include: CHANEL Fragrance & Beauty, Golden Goose, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, and Tory Burch.
