  1. I just wanted to submit a correction. Your article states that Legal Sea Foods is in most US locations but actually, it is only located in 7 states (soon to be eight), all on the East coast. So, unfortunately, Legal Sea Foods wouldn’t be available to everyone in the country, just the lucky ones who live near one.
