Legal Fish Bowl
open daily from 11:00am9:00pm
within Legal Sea Foods in Kendall Square
355 Main Street in Cambridge

Legal Sea Foods newly opened Legal Fish Bowl in Cambridge’s Kendall Square. A new fast-casual concept by the iconic Boston-based restaurant brand, Legal Fish Bowl will open within Legal Sea Foods’ existing Kendall Square location located on Main Street.

The first Legal Sea Foods restaurant opened in 1968 in Cambridge’s Inman Square as a small no-frills place where you paid before you ate and the food was served on paper plates. It was a simple formula where the highest quality, freshest seafood was coupled with fast and friendly service. Legal Fish Bowl is a modern interpretation of that heritage because five decades later, it’s still all about the fish.

The Kendall Square location’s private dining room was converted to make way for Legal Fish Bowl. There is a rustic modern design with reclaimed wood, white stone and stainless steel counters as well as two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass windows giving the illusion of being inside a fish bowl. There also is a custom light fixture suspended across the ceiling that has been fashioned to look like a bottom of a canoe. There are four seats, a standing counter for six and additional seating for 16 available at communal tables in a space shared with Legal Sea Foods.

Legal Fish Bowl offers six signature bowls, as well as an option to create your own. Bowls are fresh, seasonal and healthy and include pescatarian and vegetarian options in addition to a chicken version.

Tunanimous Choice is packed with sesame ginger tuna poke, jasmine rice, seaweed salad, charred broccoli, kimchi, radishes and nori furikake with a sesame ginger vinaigrette and Korean red chili sauce ($13.95).
