USA Today has recognized Legacy Food Hall in Plano as the second best new food hall in the nation. Since its opening in December of 2017, Legacy Hall has served as Legacy West’s most popular hangout spot. When Legacy Hall opened the Box Garden in May of last year, it transformed the back patio area into a full-fledged music venue, as well as a designated watch-party area for Dallas Cowboys Games. Over the course of the next year, Legacy Hall will add new food stalls to the mix and expand upon their events series.
