Charlottesville has the good fortune to be in the heart of excellent farm country so it's consistently surprising that more places do not take advantage of the excellent produce, meats and bounty of the region. The Local not only does take advantage of it but also showcases it by offering delicious meals which feature local meats, cheeses, and produce. The food is not overly fancy but it's extremely delicious. Think perfect roast chicken, an incredible meat loaf, gourmet burger. But also gnocchi with beef and lamb ragu, steak frites, trout, and butternut squash bake. The food is well cooked so that it's possible to taste how fresh it is and to enjoy it for its goodness rather than how many local food places are where the acrobatics of the cookery mask the actual flavors. The atmosphere is cozy (wood stove in winter, outdoor balcony in spring). Total win.
