Legal Spirits in Easton to close

Dec 06, 2010 10:50PM ● By Anonymous

Legal Spirits Restaurant and Tavern in Easton will close by the end of the year, according to an article in Sunday's Star Democrat.

The tavern, which was voted to have the best Cream of Crab Soup on the Eastern Shore by the readers of What's Up? this year, is owned by Tim Quinn and John Dodson, who decided not to purchase the space they were leasing for the restaurant. Luckily for our readers, the cream of crab soup will continue to be sold hot, cold, or frozen out of Easton Antiques & Art Gallery.

Replacing Legal Spirits will be a steakhouse/tavern opened by Stephen Mangasarian and Tom Haschen. It will be modeled after a 1930s New York-style steakhouse, serving bangers and mash, steaks, and shepherd's pie. The new restaurant does not yet have a name, but they hope to open in late February or early March.
