Since diners are banned from strolling around Legacy Hall during the coronavirus lockdown, the massive Plano food hall pivoted with to-go weekend meal kits prepped by Top Chef Season 7 contestants and fish vendors.

Each meal kit, spiked with sake, wine, or beer, is designed for parties of four ($48-$60). Carryout runs noon to 8 p.m. from Friday to Sunday, or until supplies run out. Or, deliver via GrubHub. Peruse menus and preorder here.

Top Chef alum Tiffany Derry’s fish fry spread for Good Friday (April 10) includes fried catfish, mac and cheese, green beans with bacon, potato salad, and banana pudding, along with a bottle of Santa Rita “120” chardonnay or Unlawful Assembly Blind Justice.

Veteran sushi chef Chin Liang, who runs the Hōru Sushi and Hibachi Ramen stalls inside Legacy Hall, makes Friday teriyaki chicken bento boxes with a California roll, miso soup, and shrimp tempura, complete with two sake bottles or a four-pack of Sapporo. He’s also slinging steak and grilled salmon bento boxes on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Seafood vendor Dock Local’s Mexican-leaning spread on Friday calls for batter cod tacos, elote, rice, and beans, alongside sauces, slaws, and six-pack of Dos Equis with limes ($48).

Also on tap from Dock Local this weekend: a Saturday pasta party (lemon chicken, shrimp scampi over linguini, Caesar salad, beans, garlic bread, a five-layer chocolate cake, and bottle of Chardonnay); and Easter Sunday brunch featuring shrimp and sausage grits, lobster bisque shooters, mini crab cakes with ancho lime sauce. At-home mimosas can be swapped out for a bloody mary kit for $35 more.

The 55,000-square-foot food hall (7800 Windrose Avenue) is packed with 20 vendors slinging cuisines from around the world, including breweries, bars, and an outdoor entertainment venue across three levels.
