10 Best Restaurants at Legacy West Plano
I’m reviewing the 10 best restaurants at Legacy West and I’m sharing how you can enjoy dishes from around the world without leaving Plano, Texas.
This year Summer looks very different for most of us. Vacations and air travel have been put on hold because of that hater Corna. One of my favorite aspects of vacation is the food. Discovering new restaurants and eating foods from a different culture is always a treat.
I’ve been trying to find ways to get my vacation fix during quarantine. Then I realized that Legacy West Plano was just the place for an international foodie experience. From Asia, to Europe, and the Caribbean, lets take our taste buds on vacation, no passport required.
Travel around the World at Legacy West
Many of these restaurants have patio seating, however if you are not comfortable dining in, you can enjoy their takeout option.
Toulouse – France
If French food is what you fancy, then Toulouse is the spot. The decor is adorable and the food is delicious. Whether you decide to visit for brunch with your girls or dinner with bae you get the full French experience. Enjoy classic French dishes like bouillabaisse, a delicious seafood stew, and you must have a souffle for dessert. Add a French 75 while you’re at it.
North Italia – Italy
When I think of traditional Italian food, crusty bread and rich cheesy pasta dishes come to mind. North Italia has all of your favorites in an elevated form. Some of my favorites are the meatballs, and the cheesy bread. It’s so good! I don’t typically rave about salads at an Italian restaurant, but their kale salad is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s a must every time I visit. This is a great place for date night or a family dinner.
Taverna – Coastal Italy
Just in case you can’t make your way to the Amalfi Coast this Summer, step in to Taverna for a taste of coastal Italian dishes. Taverna has a quaint bistro feel and a nice patio set-up if you want to dine al fresco.
Their fresh and delicious seafood are the stand out dishes. I find the biggest difference between coastal versus northern Italian cuisine is, coastal dishes are lighter with a white wine and tomato base, versus the heavy cream based dishes you find in northern Italian plates. My recommendation: order any of the seafood entrees and the tiramisu. I have a full review of Taverna here if you’re looking for more suggestions on what to order.
Bulla Gastropub – Spain
Spain is known for tapas and paella and the seafood paella at Bulla is a must order. Bulla is also a great spot for cocktails and ordering a bunch of tapas to share. The sangria is bomb. Try the red or the white. If you have room definitely get the churros because they are perfection, chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside!
Cava – Greece
I could eat Greek food every day! Cava is a great place to get flavors of Greece in a casual atmosphere. They offer customizable platters and bowls with fresh vegetables, dips, and grilled meats. It’s a great spot for family meals or to grab a quick lunch.
Kai – Japan
If Asia is more your flavor then head to Kai for sushi and yummy drinks. The scene at Kai is dark and moody. The restaurant is on the second floor of the plaza at Legacy West so you have a nice view. There is a variety of seating throughout the restaurant, from bar tops, to cozy nooks and a wrap around patio that is definitely a vibe.
Tommy Bahama – Caribbean
Craving a Caribbean inspired vibe? Then head to Tommy Bahamas for fruit infused cocktails and dishes like ceviche and coconut rice and shrimp. The desserts are delicious too. You can’t help but feel like you are at a resort on Caribbean island. The best part is there is a cute gift shop next door so you can grab a souvenir.
Mesero – Mexico
Your traditional Mexican dishes and cocktails can be found at Mesero. A variety of margaritas, an assortment of tacos as well as your other favorites. This is another good spot to meet up with friends for drinks.
Fogo De Chao – Brazil
Brazil is on my bucket list of places to visit. I can just picture myself sipping caipirinhas and exploring Rio. Until then, I’ll have to settle for the next best thing, which is Brazilian food, and there is no better place to have it than Fogo De Chao. Fogo boasts a large salad bar and a huge selection of delectable grilled meats. Fogo is an awesome spot for a fancy date night or to celebrate a special occasion.
Haywire – American
Sometimes you’re just craving a taste of home and that’s what you can find at Haywire. Elevated, comfort food is their specialty. You must try the elk tacos. The roasted chicken is tasty too. Haywire also has 2 levels and a swanky cigar lounge. Another place to put on your date night list.
Whether you are looking for a unique date night/Girl’s Night spot or a little escape to feel like you are on vacation, you should definitely consider grabbing dinner at one of these 10 best restaurants at Legacy West. There is something for everyone no matter what your taste buds are craving.
