L O C A L was conceptualized by chef owner Tracy Miller in 1998 with the inspired vision of becoming a local establishment in Dallas serving a modern American menu. They are located in Deep Ellum in the historical Boyd Hotel, land-marked as the oldest standing hotel in Dallas, circa 1908. They were truly grateful to find a space with a real sense of soul and resonated with the building immediately. Renovation of the hotel began in 1998. They started with catering and happily celebrated the opening of the restaurant in February 2003.
