Local Gastropub — Overton Square

Posted By on Wed, Dec 5, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Finally got a chance to check out the new Local in Overton Square.

The space is great-looking ... lots of tall windows, nice wood floors, little seating areas tucked here and there for intimate gatherings.

We started with the baked pretzels with a beer cheese fondue ($11). No complaints there.

One coworker opted for the special of the day — smoked brisket & green chili mac ($10). The brisket came covered in a Dr. Pepper barbecue sauce and a terrific spicy "firecracker" slaw.

Another ordered the goat cheese & crab enchiladas ($21). This comes with shrimp and a tomato relish.

The coworker who ordered the chef's grilled cheese ($10) was more than pleased. His reaction: Yum, yum, yum.

I got the Local burger ($12) with a veggie patty. This thing is massive. I had leftovers for dinner that night and lunch the next day.

You might have noticed that Local aint cheap. With the appetizer, drinks, and tip, this lunch for 4 came in just shy of $100.

      [image-1] Hattie B's, the hot chicken Nashville chain, had originally hoped to open this fall. They've since reset their sights to early April. Construction of the space on Cooper includes new plumbing, HVAC, and electrical. The restaurant will have seating for 126, with seating for 60 outdoors. "We are so excited about our Memphis opening in early spring. It’s such an honor for all of us at Hattie B’s to be a part of the community, and we look forward to seeing our many Memphis friends and meeting new hot chicken lovers real soon," says Nick Bishop Sr., co-owner of Hattie B's Hot Chicken.
