It is with a measure of sadness and an abundance of gratefulness that I am reporting in this Facebook post that Local Kitchen and Bar completed its last meal service at 2 p.m. today October 1, 2017.
Local began as a discussion with my good friend Rick Halberg that blossomed into a restaurant that deeply cared about providing really good food and service.
While there were ups and downs, I am so thankful for all of the friendships that we built along the way
I want to express particular gratitude to Geoff Kretchmer and our partners and staff whose dedication to Local was unwavering. Most importantly, I want to thank our patrons who supported us so consistently over the last 5 years.
Thanks, thanks and thanks again!
