“We certainly don’t take ourselves too seriously,” says Chef Chris Hall, who co-owns Local Three Kitchen & Bar with two fellow Atlantans. “We have a really laid back atmosphere.”
A painting of actor Jeff Bridges as “The Dude” in The Big Lebowski smirking at guests from behind the hostess stand conveys as much. But while you might wear flip flops here, don’t think that means you won’t get fabulous food.
The motto is “you can’t argue with delicious,” says Hall. “Don’t over-complicate it.”
Inspired by the season and availability of top-quality ingredients, Hall changes the menu often. Some popular dishes hang around throughout the season, such as this summer’s fried okra, duck meatloaf, oyster shooters and hot dogs made in-house of 100% beef brisket. In August ingredients like corn, melon and heirloom tomatoes are being showcased in various dishes.
Come hungry, each delicious bite invites another.
