Local - Good/Bad/Indifferent ?
- Robin Majumdar
I was thinking of trying Local in the Theatre District but haven't been able to find many reviews of the place. I'd be grateful for any feedback.
I had a great pre-theater dinner there. It was right after it opened and I can't for the life of me remember what I ate, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's been hidden for a while by scafolding which makes it a pain to get to, but give it a try.
Local is the kind of restaurant that a certain breed of Manhattanites tends to go to the way the rest of the country goes to Denny's: because it's there, and because the food is utterly familiar. If you happen to be on that exact block and hungry, you won't be poisoned or anything, but I wouldn't make a special trip.
