    My daughter was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. A friend recommended the Local because it has a dedicated Gluten Free menu. I was excited to see that there were tons of options for her and the waitress even said they had a separate fryer for gluten free items. She ordered the tacos from the GF menu which happen to also be on the regular menu and on both menus, the tacos were listed as made with corn tortillas. Our food came and our waitress served her dish and said "gluten-free tacos." My daughter took one bite and I suddenly noticed that the tortillas were flour not corn! This is a HUGE mistake for someone who has celiac. Its not even an issue of cross contamination. They just served her completely wrong. Luckily, I noticed after just one bite but anyone with celiac knows that even that one bite is a dire mistake for her. The manager confirmed that I was right. The tortillas were flour not corn. He brought her the correct dish but at that point, I was so turned off and didn't trust the kitchen. He comped the meal but it was little recourse for the giant error. I will never return to the Local and strongly advise anyone with Celiac or other food allergies to avoid it as well. This mistake shows that the kitchen is completely uneducated about the consequences of serving someone foods that they are not able to eat.

    They have a GF menu but I've been here a handful of times and anytime I eat anything other than a salad, I get very very sick. Will never go again.

    Loved this place before we had celiac. Had brunch and both my daughter and I got sick afterward from two different meals. Very sad.

    Large GF menu, including buckwheat soba, Mac & Cheese, Flatbreads on Udi pizza crust, large range of sandwiches and burgers on Udi buns, and fab GF truffle fries and wings! And then there's dessert - ice cream, flourless cake - a lovely dining experience where the staff fully understood celiac/GF - definitely my new go to for a night out w/out worries!!
