Upscale-Casual Concept Legacy Kitchen Is Expanding Like Crazy

A steakhouse, an oyster bar, and a seasonal Northshore restaurant by 2017

GRETNA— Legacy Kitchen’s Steak + Chop, a new restaurant from the masterminds behind Legacy’s Kitchen and New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co. among other brands, is now open in the former Twin Peaks location at 91 Westbank Expressway, Ian McNulty reports.

Steak + Chop features a menu of just that, along with seafood and salads, and a few Legacy Kitchen brand signatures— chicken and waffles, smoked salmon dip— with a Mr. John’s alum, chef Robert Bruce, heading up the kitchen.

The Good Company Food Group is a recently renamed local restaurant empire (formerly known as the NOHSC Group), and its new steakhouse is the latest in a push to open more upscale-casual restaurants under its Legacy Kitchen brand, which is sort of similar to a Houston’s.

The first Legacy Kitchen location transformed a dumpy Shoney’s on Vets in Metairie in 2013. The group then opened a Legacy Kitchen Craft Tavern at 700 Tchoupitoulas (at Girod) in Spring 2015, and plans to debut the Oyster Counter + Tap Room by Legacy Kitchen in the former MiLa space downtown by 2017, along with a New Orleans Beignet & Coffee Co. concept (both are located inside the Pere Marquette hotel).

McNulty also reports that Due North by Legacy Kitchen is heading to an undisclosed location on the Northshore with a seasonal menu of seafood and game in 2017.
