“Great hidden gem in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Great food, great ambiance! We started off with the poached egg bechamel with potatoes and and bacon, highly recommended! I had the chicken and potatoes, probably the best chicken i've ever had. My wife had the shrimp caserole, also really good. The restaurant decor is modern and minimal. They only take cash. Overall great dining experience!

“Excellente!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We were the first to arrive at 2125. By 2200 there were 6 places left. Ditto everything that has been said. Wines ~$65-220 AR. Mains ~$75-180. My roasted chicken with vegetables was succulent and flavorful. My wife's roast beef, peppers and mushrooms under mashed with Bechamel was tasty, if filling. The bowl of pears poached and floating in wine with a dash of ice cream was a light delight. True to form the owner greeted us and chatted a couple times, emphasizing "local" ingredients. Casual elegance, excellent service, wonderful service, leisurely dining. Extensive wine list. 5 stars for me, and highly recommend!

“Do not miss this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

The Local Restaurant is a very new restaurant in Palermo.

After some disappointing experiences at some highly rated places, this place blew us away.

The ambiance was hip, but not too hip.

Service was as good as it gets.

The owner came to our table (he speaks excellent English) and helped us pick out an outstanding bottle of Malbec that was so good we bought one to take home.

We started with a poached egg with pancetta and potatoes. It was out of this world.

Our mains were the lamb shoulder and Argentinean Papas. Both were excellent.

The cassata dessert was excellent as well.

This is one of my favorite restaurants ANYWHERE, and I have eaten at some incredible restaurants.

We are definitely headed back before we leave BA.

“Fine Dining in Palermo Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

During our 10 night stay in an apartment in Palermo Hollywood, Local was recommended to us by the landlady of the apartment. We ate dinner here 3 times it was so good.We are from the San Francisco, CA Bay Area and consider ourselves foodies. Local fits right in with the best restaurants in San Francisco. Would call it sophisticated dining at a really good price point. They provided us with all English menus and Daniel the owner has wonderful English skills. They have only been opened 8 months but they have a bright future. Thanks for the 3 great experiences. Also Daniel, thanks for the recommendation of Bajo Fondo Tango Club!!!!
