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 seasonally inspired modern american menu.

Located in the spirited, soulful + historical Boyd Hotel, circa 1908, in Deep Ellum, TX. Our culinary approach consistently embraces a menu that welcomes the simplest, most honest ingredients available. We are seasonally driven and are continuously strengthening our bonds with surrounding purveyors, cheesemakers, breweries, ranchers, wineries and farmers. We are always eager to share our fondness of quality driven products and we stay true to who we are while preparing food that makes us happy.

Reservations for 5 or more please contact us at (214) 752-7500.

    The wait staff was friendly and efficient if a bit slow. The food and wine were outstanding as always. All of our entrees and appetizers were prepared and presented wonderfully. I’d recommend Local to anyone for any occasion especially something special.

    OMG I love Local. The chef has been there since it opened. She always comes by your table to greet you. The service is exquisite. The food even better. and, did I tell you that the renovated space is designed in a simple and sophisticated style. I say go eat at Local!

    Food was underwhelming, overly salty, and skimpy. Ambiance was like someone visited a hip, high-end restaurant and then described what it was like to his brother-in-law who is a part-time set designer. Also, they don’t have liquor, so those $17 cocktails are watered-down wine. So many better options out there. Best part of the night was deciding NOT to do tasting menu.

    I went here with my girlfriend for more of a fancy, dress-up-like date. The ambiance and vibe in the restaurant was very nice. They had dim lights with candles on every table. When we went on 4/20/24, at around 5:45, there was no one else in the restaurant and it added to the romance. I mentioned parking being very expensive ($24) to who I assume was the manager and he was kind enough to subtract it from the total at the end of our meal. Food wise, I got the scallops and they were very very tasty but they were not nearly filling enough for $50. I will say, the ambiance of the place made the prices more worth and it. I’m not someone who really goes to fancier restaurants often, but this was a nice experience. I probably would not come back to this place just for the worry that parking wasn’t covered by whoever was working the next time I went, and it takes quite a bit to fill me up and I’d like to go somewhere to get more bang for my buck! Overall, if you’re looking for a nice romantic night in Dallas, the atmosphere of this place will do the trick.
