Crystal City Legal Sea Foods in Questionable Waters

The future is murky for Legal Sea Foods in Crystal City after the company took the location off its official list of restaurants.

The webpage for the Crystal City location now redirects to the chain’s Reagan National Airport outpost. Similarly, the Legal Sea Foods location in D.C.’s Chinatown neighborhood has been removed from the company’s list, and its webpage now redirects to that of the Legal Sea Bar in Union Station.

The removal of the D.C. and Arlington restaurants from the locations page was done within the past month; as recently as July 28 both were still listed.

All Legal locations in the D.C. area remain closed, at least temporarily, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The company’s locations in its home market of Massachusetts, by contrast, started reopening in June.

While the front door to the Crystal City Legal Sea Foods has a sign up saying the closure is temporary, a source with knowledge of the matter tells ARLnow that it has indeed closed permanently.

The company, which is suing its insurer over the denial of business interruption claims caused by the pandemic, could not be reached for comment.

As one door on the block closes, however, another opens. The neighboring Bowlero at 320 23rd Street S. opened in July.
