If the suburbs had a Times Square it would be Legacy Place in Dedham. This glittering stop off Route 128 radiates commerce, and The Met Bar and Grill is the late-night diner. But because this is not the gritty city, the restaurant with its sleek burger bar and plush seating has the comfortable air of a neighborhood joint. "It doesn't matter what the hours on the door are, if people are having a good time, we stay open," says owner Kathy Sidell.
