Burrowed inside the Henry Hall Hotel in Hudson Yard, Legacy Records is hip personified—down to every last detail. Its art deco interior is defined by gold-accented trim, tile floors and burgundy leather-topped tables. Zalto glasses grace each of these tables indicating that wine is serious business here—the sommelier was recently crowned the best in the world. Cocktails are smartly divided into styles, namely light beginning, weightier middle or stout nightcap. Winning drinks aside, dishes are remarkable and treated with great care. Pigeon with prosciutto is grilled for that perfect char; handmade pasta with beet and ricotta has a pop of color plus an explosion of flavor; and duck, aged for two weeks and glazed with spices and honey, is revelatory.
