We don’t typically associate sports bars with farmer’s markets, but today restaurateur Stephane Bombet lets us know he’s soft-opened Local Sports Bar and Grill to the public. Bombet insists Locals buys fresh ingredients every day before noon and is proud to shun frozen and non-organic product while reducing the use of processed food as much as possible. This fortunately doesn’t mean the food or the sports get toned down or crunchy.
There’s no tempeh burger in sight. Instead, Bombet tells us the cheesyburger is the thing to try, with 8 oz. of ground on-the-spot organic beef nesting a ball of fresh mozzarella, among other upgraded bar eats. There’s also a bread pudding made from chocolate croissants, a fried Twinkie tower, hand-cut fries, a fried hot dog, and homemade meatballs. Across from Roscoe’s on Pico, Locals has baked wings in different styles in case you’re trying to avoid the debt that chicken and waffles provides. Drinks include an upside down pineapple cake cocktail and ‘bubble bombs.”
As for sports, Local’s is throwing a lot of parties for big events and will often give away sports memorabilia. Coming up on January 30th, the bar will show Sugar Shane Mosley and Andre Berto pummeling each other and give away a signed Mosley glove to a guest to celebrate.
Bombet, a former music publisher and manager from France, started restaurant ventures in Europe and recently worked as manager at Villa where he became close with owner Reza Roohi and scouted for Local’s location. Locals is now open and as a bonus to Grub Street readers, a 15% discount will be available to any guest who says “Grub Street” through the month of Janaury. So what’s on Local’s menu?
