Local is a modern American steakhouse and bar located on Jackson’s historic Town Square. The menu features both classic and specialty cuts of locally ranched meats and game in addition to fresh seafood, house-ground burgers and seasonally inspired eats. Owned and operated by chefs Will Bradof and Paul Wireman of Trio: An American Bistro, Local showcases their enthusiasm for reviving the craft of in-house butchery, with a focus on dry-aged steaks and house-made sausages. Much of the beef comes from the Lockhart Cattle Company, whose grass-fed cows never leave the valley. Local offers a casual and vibrant bar atmosphere with 12 regional beers on draft as well as a relaxed dining room with a contemporary Western design. Local is the perfect spot to grab a burger for lunch or to have drinks and dinner with friends while you sit and watch the action on the Town Square.
The food. The view. The art. Jackson’s newest restaurant combines exquisite cuisine, breathtaking views and fabulous art from its perch at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. From the team behind Gather, this lunch spot invites you to sip a glass of rosé on the patio, linger over your meal and peruse the museum’s world-class collection. Find chef Clark Myers’ inventive dishes made with seasonal, sustainable and local ingredients presented in a creative way, like a braised pork belly BLT (tomato jam, grilled red onion, sunflower pesto on ciabatta). Palate is the place to stop for a quick bite before walking the museum or for a long, lazy lunch with friends. On Sundays, take the bike path to Palate’s luxury brunch, offering a buffet and a small made-to-order menu, along with mimosas and bloody marys.
