Houston, TX 77005
Houston Press' Description
Local Foods is the epitome of a useful restaurant, the kind of place that's relaxed and easy — and inspires you to have a relaxed, easy meal yourself. The choices are streamlined and simple — a few sandwiches, two soups, a handful of salads and sides and a few Texas-made beers and wines — as is the effortlessly chic, updated deli décor. You can take your meal inside, on the shady Village patio or to go. You can even enjoy a cocktail; like everything else here, they're made with Texas-sourced products, keeping Local Foods true to its name.
Tips from foursquare
At over $10, the sandwiches may seem pricey, but they utilize high quality ingredients and come with two excellent sides; it makes for a filling lunch or a satisfying light dinner.
Try the Summer Harvest salad! The mixture of baby lettuce, goat cheese, assorted vegetables, sprouts, salsa verde, sunflower seeds, and shrimp or chicken will have you asking, "What's bread?"
May be the best sandwich place I've ever eaten at. I had the duck confit sandwich and it was divine. The fruitade was yummy too.

Impressed. I love the crab and shrimp sandwich. Also the Crunchy Chicken sandwich on the pretzel bun. Other good treats are the Bahn Mi, Salt & Pepper Roast Beef. They come with a choice of 2 sides.
