We have eaten at Local Three a few times now. Since my parents were in town for the Easter weekend we thought we would take them their to check it out. Like us, they love a good meal. I love the vibe. The food is really good and inventive. This is the type of place where being a waiter isn’t just a job but a career. You could tell that our waiter , Ken, not only loved working there but he was also very passionate about the food. He knew where they got the mushrooms from, where they grew the lettuce (in a warehouse in downtown ATL) and the farms where they got their berries from. Plus, they play good music and have paintings of “The Dude” and pigs all over the place. I told my parents they did not need to dress up too much. The waiters all wear jeans and have tattoos. Of course my Dad said “Our waiter doesn’t have any tattoos!” Ken preceded to lift his sleeve up and show off some of his tats! HA!
First came the Snacks. The thing to know about Local Three’s menu is that if something is in quotes, you better ask for a description of the item. Justin and I started out with the Royal with Cheese. The first time we came here and ordered it we thought we would be getting a mini hamburger. Yeah, no. The Angus Beef is served Tartar and it is topped with an egg on top! So Yummy!
Check out the bar. Ken told us that the bar (which is pretty long) and three of the six top tables were made out of a large tree that had fallen across the road durning a storm here in ATL. If you are a bourbon lover, this is the place for you. They have pages and pages of bourbons on their drink list.
All the salt and pepper shakers are different. You can tell someone went to a lot of yard sales to get them. The Boy liked theses two. Only problem with them is that he likes to play with them and that is kinda gross.
For my appetizer I got the Lump Crab “Salad”. There are those quotes again! The lump crab was toped with honey mustard ice cream. Yes, ice cream! It was so Yummy!! Unlike the Snack, I did not have to share with My Man. He did get a taste and really loved it.
I love wine. Really, Really love it. My dad picked out CrossBarn by Paul Hobbs. It is a Pinot Noir and was very good. Pinot’s are my favorite. My parents are going to Nappa Vally and Sonoma in a few weeks and added this winery on their tour.
Ok, Shay, the place looks and sounds great but can I bring my kids there? Yes. The Boy is almost 8 and this is his third visit to Local Three. Whenever we go out to the dinner with him we tend to get to the restaurant around 5:30. We where there last night for about an hour and half and by the time we left, both tables next to us had kids with them. However, if you were looking for a date night place, it works too. My Man and I have eaten there around 7:30-8pm and it was great vibe too.
If you are someone who loves good food, check it out!! Tell them My Hotel Yorba sent you!
