My "Nth" Local 3 Excursion

Dined 5 days ago

This visit was to celebrate and treat a good friend's new job -- and so the luncheon meal and service had to be as good as they always are at Local 3. They were. Patrick again served us - and no one is better! He is sharp, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without intruding. Though the hummus was out of stock as an appetizer, my friend's husband ordered a smoked trout with onion dip and the house chips. Ironically, it was one of the only disappointments I've ever had: apparently the trout had swum right past the dip and back into the stream. I noted its scantness to Patrick - and when the check came, it had been removed from the bill. Everything else was great: salads, sandwiches, down to the details. My fried catfish sandwich was delicious - good fish, good crispy batter, excellent sauce and relish, all making for a fine sandwich! My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich and kale side salad -- my friend had a cold noodle salad with grilled chicken -- her husband had their stunning burger -- all perfection. So, missing trout aside, Local 3 again delivered its usual promise to be unique, tasty, fairly priced, and with all the right touches in ambience and personality. I go again and again and again - happily!

Sunday Brunch

Dined on April 24, 2016

As always, Chris Hall & company never ceases to amaze us with what comes from the kitchen. We normally come here at least two – three times a month for brunch. We really enjoy Local Three because the menu changes regularly. We really love the concept that you walk through the kitchen to get your food. You can see the cooks making small batches of more food as things run low. Everything there is well prepared, and cooked with fresh local ingredients. The staff is friendly, and super laid back Definitely make reservations.

great place to make a good impression

Dined on April 20, 2016

The food here never disappoints, and we appreciated our server's knowledgeable recommendations. Eclectic decor made my dinner companion smile and comment favorably without distracting from our meal. The ample portion of beets and strawberries we started with worked nicely with the diver scallops, and a round of bourbon from their lengthy selection made a nice aperitif. My stuffed trout confirmed it's status as my favorite entree, and the chocolate-banana cake rounded out our dinner perfectly. My only regret was that the food was so good we lingered overlong and I felt like I should have tipped more to compensate our server (did I mention she was excellent?) for taking up the table than the otherwise generous tip we left.

Old friend who moved to Boston from Atlanta 5 years ago was in town. We enjoyed bourbon in the bar along with truffle popcorn to jump start the fun. Although we had to wait a minute for service when seated for our dinner reservation, it was well worth the wait for chicken and dumplings and the delicious smoky mushroom vegetarian pasta. Make sure you sample the yeast rolls with sea salt - soooo good! Always love the vibe and food and the apology for our wait was more than accepted. Thanks again - we will be back soon!

vip
Dined on April 10, 2016

This used to be one of our favorites but it just hasn't been as good the last couple times. Nothing really caught our eye on the menu this time and what we ordered was good but not remarkable. (Apps were ahi tuna dish and a morel/polenta, followed by basically a pork taco dish and a vegetable carbonara, then creme brûlée to finish) That is setting aside the fact that it's sneaky expensive. A $15 appetizer should have more than 3 cubes of tuna in it. Walking out of here we didn't feel like we had a $200 meal. Sadly Local Three will probably fall out of the rotation for awhile for us.

Engagement Brunch!

Dined on March 20, 2016

Thanks to Local Three for hosting my THIRD special event within the last few years. I have always enjoyed the brunch buffet, dinner options (they even designed a custom menu for my birthday last year) and extensive bourbon list. I was recently engaged and couldn't think of a better place for us to celebrate. It was beautiful (as usual) with so much natural light and the murmurs of Sunday afternoon chatter. They gave us complimentary champagne and the only small note that I have is for them to make non-pork options for the menu :-) For example, having bacon in the delicious quiche without bacon-less quiche means that I couldn't sneak food off of my fiance's plate, lol. I can't wait for us to celebrate a special occasion again in the future!

Dined on March 10, 2016

We were a bit early for our reservation so we proceeded to the bar until the rest of our party arrived. The female bartender did not appear to be interested in us and or give us much an opinion on the wine list. When seated for dinner I got the same 'vibe' from our server..she didn't introduce herself and I got the distinct impression she wasn't overly interested in us. Coming to take our orders lagged and I wasn't sure if she had forgotten about us. Once our food arrived the service did get better and the meal did end on a good note. All the appetizers entrees and desserts were very good.

I ordered a cup of the Cervena Venison chili and the roasted broccoli salad. I was not expecting the soup to be so small for the price. The roasted broccoli salad portion was small as well and I was not expecting a a few broccoli sitting on top of a bed of romaine. The lettuce part was not in the description. The flavor was good but between the portion and mostly lettuce, I thought $12.93 was a little pricey for that.

Chris Hall & Staff never fail to amaze me. A new menu every weekend. Each visit to the kitchen yields a different delight. I cant express how much I enjoy this and the other restaurants owned by Mr. Hall, Mr. Mussman and Mr. Turner. I highly recommend the Sunday Brunch here, it's awesome. But also try out the specialty dinners , We were here for Valentine's. Awesome as always, The Bourbon Dinners are something to try also. Oh, and by the way you look mesmerizing .

The Owner's of Muss & Turner's have established another great restaurant and bar. Brunch is fantastic buffet, bourbon list is massive and ambiance is incredible. Food is phenomenal.

Great ambiance, hideaway restaurant

Dined on March 5, 2016

I love the vibe of Local Three. Any guest/visitor would be impressed with both the menu selections (food and drink) and the building itself. We enjoyed a seat by the window, which offered a great view, but the front of the house by the bar is a great place to sit too. They have a room tucked away that would be great for a small group. The food was delicious, and the wine and bourbon list extensive. My husband enjoyed a flight of bourbon -- three (or four, I can't recall) bourbons that he selected from the long list. It was not a pre-determined group for the flight. Very nice.
