Norman has a new eco-friendly restaurant to try out. Local opened earlier this month and is located in the Normandy Creek Shopping Center at NW 24th and Main. Local is a casual dinning restaurant that follows the farm to fork concept.
Local focuses on locally sourced, sustainable and creative American food. They feature a seasonal menu, which includes grass-fed meats and specials created with fresh, local produce.
Local not only has great food but also has retail space which features complete take-away meals, local products, and more. And if that’s not enough they also have a children’s center called “Localville.” Localville is great for families. Local know kids often eat differently and faster than adults so kids can go to Localville to eat, watch movies, read, and play!
“We are busy people,” states owner Melissa Scaramucci. “Sometimes we want to just pick up something that is fresh and nutritious, so we created a take-away retail space. Sometimes we wish we could sit down with our friends or husbands without having the expense of a sitter, so we created LOCALVILLE for the kids. But mostly, we love sustainable, locally sourced, delicious food, which is why we hired Ryan Parrott. This has been our dream. And now we’re excited this dream is our reality.”
