Fodor's Review

You'll find an epicurean take on healthy eating at this farm-and-sea-to-table bistro that, as the name declares, looks almost exclusively to local suppliers to stock its kitchen. Though in a strip mall a few blocks inland, the setting is hip and polished with an interior that evokes both the beach and the farm, no doubt a reflection of the young and stylish owners’ passion for nourishment. Foodies, the health-conscious, hipsters, and retirees mix equally at The Local, where ingredient origins are proudly traced: microgreens come from Herban Gardens in Fort Myers, dairy and cheese from Winter Park, and organic produce from any number of Florida growers. Choose from healthy options like a super-food salad to more savory indulgences like pork shoulder in natural jus with mango mustard.
