The Local, Naples' first farm and sea-to-table restaurant, celebrates the intersection of local farmers, ranchers, sea mongers, artisans and brewers: fresh, local ingredients. Created by Owner and award-winning Executive Chef Jeff Mitchell, The Local offers simple, delicious and nourishing dishes, prepared with healthy cooking techniques and locally sourced ingredients. With a casual ambiance, cozy wine bar and daily rotating blackboard specials, we welcome you to enjoy our local eatery showcasing Florida’s freshest bounty.
We find inspiration in the here. The season. The ingredients. The now.
We connect our guests with the farms, the fields and the sea. The beauty of Florida’s natural simplicity and its abundant bounty – meats, fish, vegetables, fruits and more.
We celebrate the ranchers, farmers, and sea mongers who practice sustainable farming.
