[Photo Essay] Brunch at Local Kitchen and Bar

Jolly Pumpkin iO Saison & a perfect flower – a welcoming sight.

Had a chance to check out Chef Jeremy Kalmus’ brunch menu at Local Kitchen and Bar. The dishes range from bacon & eggs to more ethnically driven dishes like chilaquiles and shakshuka. There are also hand crafted cocktails, good selection of draught beer, and great coffee.¬†Attention is paid to gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan customers with clearly marked menu items.

I was happy with everything. From having Jolly Pumpkin‘s iO Saison on tap to the stellar service to the excellent food. Local’s brunch game is on point.

Also, while not necessarily a brunch item, the poutine is something special. Kalmus’ version is hand cut fries, veal demi-glace, and cheese curds. The demi-glace is out of this world and adds such a deep richness to the dish.

Kale Salad: endive, radicchio, carrots, fennel, roasted apples, pistachios, farro, chickpeas, cider-shallot vinaigrette

Shakshuka: farm eggs up, simmered in a spicy tomato sauce with feta cheese. Served with a house made biscuit.

Off menu treat: Brioche French toast with Nueske bacon, bananas, and bourbon maple syrup

Chilaquiles: crispy tortillas, ranchero salsa, smoky black beans, farm eggs

Nueske Bacon

Poutine: hand cut fries, veal demi-glace, cheese curds
