who we are

Legal Restaurants is a cumulation of decades of restaurant, hotel, and night life development. We are a full-service hospitality development group that specializes in designing new food and beverage concepts for the Commercial Real Estate market. 


Our expertise has been built in the trenches. Our founder, Antonio Friscia, has 35 years of experience as a Chef and Partner in some of San Diego's most successful venues. Our team is built with experience from the world's largest hotel groups, fast-casual brands, Michelin Star restaurants, and night life venues. We work with the most creative real estate landlords and owners to develop and operate food and beverage venues unlike any seen before in the office sector. 


What we do

The world of hospitality is changing rapidly and operators must adapt quickly to continue to deliver the products and services the market requires. Operations must adopt lean methodologies and the most successful leaders benefit from collaborative partnerships, creative menu offerings and omni channel marketing efforts.

Our mission is clear. We navigate this complicated space to concept, design, build, and operate memorable venues. We will not always say what you want to hear, but we will be honest and thoughtful when providing our recommendations to find creative ways of delivering quality while balancing profitability and sustainability.   

our collective experience

Our collective experience across a vast array of  venues has rounded our expertise and  provided us with excellent insight into the development and operational capacity of unique food & beverage concepts.
