Hot Spots

The soul food of the south has made its way to Tampa Bay. 

“The Local” has all of our favorite comfort foods with a homemade feel.  

It’s a local based restaurant specializing in Southern food with a twist.

Most products are sourced from right here in Florida from the natural meats to the fresh, never frozen produce.

“They’re just good products and when you put those good products in the recipes it just comes out all better.”

The menu changes with the seasons with new specials popping up as different local goods are produced.

“We have our pot pie is obviously one of the top-selling items, the whole hog it’s a pork shank with risotto underneath it, it’s really good. There’s so much on our menu and its good because you can come in and try, you can come back the next time and try.”

So get ready to enjoy some southern hospitality and eat local.
