Modern American

  • 85

Local, a hip, modern restaurant in Deep Ellum’s historic Boyd Hotel, opened its doors in 2003 and has been serving chef/owner Tracy Miller’s New American cuisine ever since. Besides offering a nightly chef’s tasting menu with dishes like pan-seared lobster cake or herb-rubbed lamb, the dinner menu highlights local, seasonal ingredients in the likes of fried green beans or panko and cornflake-crusted bass with parmesan risotto. The minimalist design of soft lighting and wood accents provides a soothing backdrop as guests sip selections off the Californian- and French-dominated wine list.
