In the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile & Gold Coast, The Local Chicago provides an elevated dining experience within walking distance of the city’s greatest shopping and attractions. Proprietors Matt Moore and David Flom, veterans of the acclaimed Chicago Cut Steakhouse in River North, strive for The Local Chicago to be a home away from home. Specially sourced ingredients are used to elevate American comfort food favorites that deeply satisfy. The menu changes seasonally, but standout favorites are the chicken pot pie, bacon-wrapped shrimp and grits, a show-stealing jalapeno corn bread and, borrowing a page from sister restaurant Chicago Cut Steakhouse, sublime USDA Prime steak. From the dining room guests can view the “from-scratch” exhibition kitchen, watching as chefs roast succulent rotisserie chickens and Berkshire pork racks in the restaurant’s majestic red & gold Rotisol. Rounding out the visit is a jaw-dropping wine list delivered via ipad.

"I have been to the local several times for different reasons. I would say my favorite is in the summer for outside dining! No worries if it rains and you are not bothered by people on the street. The bar scene is very cozy in the winter and the bartenders are very friendly. Food is consistent , but could use a little umph! It is owned by the same people that own Chicago Cut but would say no where near the caliber of food. What I do appreciate is the fact that you have a warm and friendly atmosphere dining alone or in a group. I have not tried any of their daily specials so maybe I am missing out there. And if you are out to dine leisurely this is not the place for you. Every time I have stated we were in no hurry ,and no wait list."

DISCOVER CULINARY NIRVANA and great variety of Indian culture as experienced through her many regional cuisines-from Bombay and Delhi to Goa. The essence of Indian Cuisine lies in the variety of spices available and the aromas generated by their use. A visit to Indian Garden is a culinary voyage of discovery to the exotic tastes and textures of India and the warmth and hospitality of her people.
