Thank you to Lisa Sette and her staff at the Lisa Sette Gallery and our friends at Local First for hosting the July Get Your PHX. I was impressed with the number of people who attended, despite the 1,000 degree temperature outside.
Thank you, also, to the very generous George Hancock of the Phoenix Ale Brewery for supplying the beer. P.A.B. will begin to issue its line of brews in cans, starting in September.
This August, Get Your PHX invites you, the local, to check out another great new local spot called, The Local. So meta, right?
Chef Chris McKinley, previously at Atlas Bistro, and Adam Hargett, former general manager at Merc Bar, opened their joint venture just a few months ago at the corner of 3rd St. and Roosevelt.
Opening in the heart of the Roosevelt Row Arts District was a great choice by Hargett and McKinley because it is the perfect venue for their balance of classy and casual dining. Guests can enjoy a great view with retractable glass doors lining the front of The Local, and when pulled open, provide passersby with an aromatic invitation of savory delights.
McKinley’s menu can be described as ‘contemporary American’, which basically translates to timeless favorites done better. Dishes like Crispy Pig Ear Pad Thai, Marquez Stuffed Quail, and Roman Style Gnocchi are among the flavorful combinations you’ll find here.
“It’s targeted toward the foodies,” McKinley said. “We want people to feel comfortable. People can have a cocktail wearing shorts and T-shirt and still eat bone marrow and head cheese.”
Along with a rotating menu, filled with delicious and eclectic flavors, food and cocktail lovers can expect locally sourced ingredients in many of the amazing dishes and drinks. After all, it is The Local.
Join us for an exciting evening with our new neighbors at The Local. As always, please reserve your spot below.
