Legal landing at PHL

The Boston seafooder will take a spot at the airport.

Legal landing at PHL

Three years after setting up in the Court at King of Prussia, Legal Sea Foods is fixing to open a second area location this spring, at Philadelphia International Airport.

Roger Berkowitz, who heads the Boston-based seafood chain, said Legal would take the space between Terminals B and C previously occupied by a TGI Friday’s.

The only missing detail is the exact name. At Boston’s Logan International Airport and at its newest location in Dedham, Mass., Legal uses a concept called Legal C Bar, selling smaller plates aimed at quick turnover.

Berkowitz is toying with changing the “C” to “Sea” in case Philadelphians don’t get the pun.
