South Food & Wine or Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant?
we have a group of friends coming into town for a big dinner. this group likes wine and food and a lively, hip atmoshere. being selfish, i wanted to try somewhere new rather than the foodie standbys. Local looks interesting from a design standpoint and the wine looks promising but i've heard the food is not so great. it is very new though so maybe that is being ironded out? i went to lunch at south recently and found the food and atmosphere decent. any of you been to either and have some opinions? basically i want to try local but if the food is terrible my friends will not be happy and my credibility will take a hit. would love your thoughts.
