Master P and I visited Local in Ferndale on St. Patty's Day for an early dinner.  Having had been over-served on Saturday, he was not up for much on Sunday.  I talked him into dinner and a movie.  Scarlet and I had been to Local once, and I was itching to get back.  Unfortunately, I did not take any photos on this visit, but nonetheless, I really wanted to post a mention for this place. 
** It is my FAVORITE place in all of SE Mich as of this post! **
Ferndale is so lucky to have Local.  I am in love with the décor, the menu and the food.  I love the wood-burning fire smell.  So homey.  I love what I call "farmhouse chic" décor.  I'm in love with the Michigan artwork.  I'm in love with the creative cocktail menu (which is not online).  I have never been disappointed with the cocktails.  They are creative and delicious.  They have a nice selection of Michigan beers as well.  Local prides themselves on their mission, vision and goals...check out the website.  This quote sums up why the food is so phenomenal: 
" Food and supplies to be sourced with the highest priority on quality, locality, sustainability and craftsmanship." 

This day I have the fried green tomatoes (again) which  are served with pepper jam and goat cheese. The crispy coating is perfect.  This is (as I mentioned before) one my current favorite bites in Detroit.  I also have the mac & cheese with candied bacon..carbs be damned!  Absolute perfection.  Master P and I also ask for extra corn muffins, which are tiny and perfect served with a citrus butter.  Master P enjoys a scallop special off-menu.  He was very pleased. 

I have read about the chef's table.  Up to eight people with a special menu in the heart of the kitchen.  I've been trying to figure out what I want to do for my birthday this year...it's a milestone.  Maybe dinner here at the chef's table would be a nice start.

Ferndale is hopping, and I'm excited to see the new businesses in the making, such as
secreto and Schramm's Mead.  I'm trying not to be too sad that I moved to GPP.  Ferndale success is great for my rental property...I just need to come visit more often!
