Local Foods is the epitome of a useful restaurant, the kind of place that's relaxed and easy — and inspires you to have a relaxed, easy meal yourself. The choices are streamlined and simple — a few sandwiches, two soups, a handful of salads and sides and a few Texas-made beers and wines — as is the effortlessly chic, updated deli décor. You can take your meal inside, on the shady Village patio or to go. You can even enjoy a cocktail; like everything else here, they're made with Texas-sourced products, keeping Local Foods true to its name.
