L O C A L was conceptualized by chef-owner Tracy Miller in 1998 with the inspired vision of becoming a local establishment in Dallas serving a modern, American menu.
Their culinary approach consistently embraces a menu that welcomes the simplest, most honest ingredients available. They are seasonally driven and are continuously strengthening bonds with surrounding purveyors, cheesemakers, breweries, ranchers, wineries and farmers. Always eager to share their fondness of quality driven products while staying true to who they are while preparing food that makes us happy.
L O C A L is in Deep Ellum in the historical Boyd Hotel, landmarked as the oldest standing hotel in Dallas, circa 1908. “We were truly grateful to find a space with a real sense of soul and resonated with the building immediately”, say Miller. “Our renovation of the hotel began in 1998. We then catered and happily celebrated the opening of the restaurant in February 2003”.
The timeless design of L O C A L , by designer Alice Cottrell Interior Design, has wonderfully succeeded in capturing the character and charm of the building's history, creating a warm, modern and comfortable surrounding.
We are so proud to be established as a 12 year old restaurant that has become a true destination for those supporting our independent spirit. We hope to continue to create and share a wealth of special memories for those guests dining with us.
