The Legacy Records restaurant in New York is part of the new luxury residential building, the restaurant was designed by Ken Fulk, one of the best interior designers of the moment, who’s known for his opulent, colorful and flamboyant style.
Legacy Records is not very conveniently located unless you are visiting or exhibiting at the Javitz Center. The name comes from its former resident, Legacy Recording Studio, which was once the only film-scoring studio on the East Coast, where many motion picture soundtracks and Broadway scores were born.

The interiors take their inspiration from the recording studio that was once located on the site with lots of teak wood, white marble, brass, and leather.
The top interior designer described to Vogue as looking “like the members-only club you’ve somehow finagled your way into.”
But the chic new restaurant might be worth the visit. Legacy Records is the latest project from Delicious Hospitality, the team behind downtown restaurants Charlie Bird & Pasquale Jones. The new space at the Hudson Yards includes an 85-seat restaurant, a walk up café, two private dining rooms with kitchens, and an upstairs wine and cocktail bar.
The upstairs mural behind the bar by San Francisco artist Chris Lux is based on his interpretation of Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You” album cover. Legacy Records is definitely the newest see and be seen place in New York.
