Local 188

After having plans displaced, Kaitee and I decided on an impromptu trip to Local 188 (perk: They have parking behind the building!).

Local 188Local 188 specializes in Spanish cuisine and local ingredients - as well as an extensive beverage list.

Local 188
"Staying true to Maine’s seasonal offerings, Executive Chef Jay Villani, Chef de Cuisine Travis Kern and Sous Chef Henry Remenapp construct a menu that is both innovative and familiar. Ingredients are sourced from local farmers, foragers, and fishermen. Many components of the menu, such as breads, charcuterie, pickled vegetables, and desserts, are prepared in-house. Local 188 has its roots in Spain but draws influence from all over the Mediterranean to create a unique blend of old and new."

Local 188I went with a Thyme Traveler drink, which has thyme and blackberry bourbon, lime, ginger liqueur, simple syrup, and bitters.

Local 188And, it was fabulous.

Local 188Then, we had some bread to start our meal - always a favorite of mine.

Local 188And, then, I ordered Potato Gnocchi with compound butter, ricotta, swiss chard, spiced sunflower seeds. Wow. This is one of my favorite dishes I've had in a very, very long time.

Local 188The love the bite of the gnocchi, the umami flavor, everything.

Local 188And we also got a cheeseboard that just looked beautiful!
