Local 212

From the meats to the produce, all of Local 212's handpicked ingredients hail from the great state of Michigan. This is by design, but it's also by necessity—chef Brian Gianola would have a hard time crafting his fresh, seasonal dishes from scratch if he had to source his ingredients from distant locales. Chef Gianola's upscale takes on American classics range from parmesan truffle pretzels paired with gouda fondue to seared walleye tossed with curried lentils and a garlic-ginger cream sauce. If you have dietary restrictions, you'll be pleased to discover Local 212's separate menu of gluten-free options.

Taking a page from Gianola's book, the restaurant's bartenders focus on wines and beers made locally in Michigan. Their cocktail list even includes a Manhattan crafted with artisanal spirits from the Great Lakes State.


The setting was enjoyable and not overly crowed. The food was tasteful and unique and the drink selection was great.
