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.

"My wife and I recently had our anniversary dinner at The Local Chicago. We really enjoyed it and look forward to going back again soon. The service was great, and the wait staff very attentive, without being intrusive. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" (which we had mentioned when making our reservation online). They have an excellent wine list, uniquely presented to you on an iPad (so you can read more about each wine). We had the crabcake appetizer (very good), prime rib (prepared exactly how my wife asked - the best she's ever had!) and BBQ ribs (very tender, melt-in-your-mouth, practically falling-off-the bone meat). Dessert was an absolutely delicious Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie. We will be back!"
