At The Local, one of the first things I was happy to learn is that the beef is 100% grass-fed and all of the seafood on the menu is wild-caught and fresh. While the focus is on providing local fresh produce, you’ll find that 50-90% of the produce is organically grown or certified organic, depending on the season. Obviously, some seasons provide more or less. For those with a gluten intolerance, the menu offers several gluten-free provisions as well as a nice selection of vegan options.
It is worth mentioning that the menu is extensive and includes appetizers, soups, salads, pizzas, pasta, along with many steak and seafood choices. A crowd-pleasing variety of foods, for certain. For those looking to have drinks, The Local also serves a selection of specialty cocktails, wine, and even local draft beer on tap.
What I ordered
I ordered the Kung Pao Avocado and unfortunately, I wasn’t overly impressed with the taste or combination of ingredients. The dish did not speak of quality or freshness.
The Local occupies a newly decorated space with farm chic accents and a large open dining room. Covered outdoor seating is available in front of the restaurant.
The Local has a nice atmosphere and offers a few clean food choices. I was disappointed in the food taste and quality but I am looking forward to a re-visit for another review. I’ll be back and hope to try their Open Face Monte Christo, served during brunch on weekends only, and a few other dishes as well.
