Lunch American Gold Coast

From the creators of Chicago Cut, The Local is quickly becoming a Gold Coast favorite, just blocks from the Magnificent Mile. Adding a twist to traditional home-cooked meals, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, guests will find themselves swept away from the city and sitting at the table of the all-American household. We recently stopped by to check it out, here's a bit of what we saw:

The Local lunch and dinner menu offers an array of comfort foods like home style chicken pot pie, meatloaf and cornbread, partnered with optional sides of sweet corn, mac & cheese, or mashed potatoes. Grandma’s Chicken Noodle Soup can kick off the meal as an appetizer or serve as the meal itself! We're starting off with the Smoked Beef Brisket Chili, a hearty app topped with sour cream, red onion and cheddar cheese.

Being so close to Michigan Avenue has its advantages, one being a rotating selection of lunch specials. The "Mac Attack" is a grilled cheese sandwich loaded with macaroni noodles and ham. Get after it!

The Local has a strong sandwich game, we can't take our eyes off this next one. The Meatball Sandwich on Ciabatta bread is a gluttonous ode to the type of sandwich Grandma would make, this version comes with a mound of fries and is smothered in a marinara sauce.
