I have been to Local 4x for dinner and 2x for brunch. The food at dinner is good, they have a great wine list by the glass and a fun, hip atmosphere. The service is very friendly, but way too slow and absent minded. Over the course of 4 dinners at Local something (bread, our wine order, even our entries) has always been forgotten and everything takes forever. That said, the servers are very helpful and friendly, which does go a long, long way. Just wish they were a little more on their game.\r
As for brunch, I have not been impressed with the food. It was about as generic and lack-luster as you can get for brunch. Certainly nothing special.
Pros: Good food at dinner, great wine list (even by the glass), very friendly service, fun scene
Cons: Service is very, very slow and absent-minded
