the restaurant is so cute and pretty. it's a little pricey but there were plenty of vegan options to choose from. Even their wine menu had clearly marked vegan options. Food was so fresh and light. And they have great fresh juices

Pros: vegan options , local, fresh ingredients
Cons: a bit pricey but worth it for nice date or lunch

A vegan option daily

Posted on 08 / 11 / 2014

Great for vegetarians and they are very thoughtful of vegans. Everyday there is at least one vegan dinner entree. Many other options for lunch including salads and wraps. I love Fridays at The Local. They offer wine from a different region weekly. For $10 you get 3 different wines, 2 ounces each with a small bite paired to the wine. They will make the bites vegan. I had garlic corn with carrot chips, curried calabasas squash and watermelon gazpacho for my small bites. Very creative. They also leave a bean puree with veggies at the table for you and bread upon request so as not waste food. Local beers and a nice wine selection.

Pros: Excellent food, Kitchen is very accomodating, Happy Hour

The Local, Naples, Fl, is Naples' first farm-to-table, sea-to-table restaurant specializing in locally sourced ingredients moderately priced. The restaurant was founded by Owner-Chef Jeff Mitchell, a classically trained chef and wine expert with 20 years of experience in the culinary and hospitality industry. Florida’s abundant seafood and long growing season inspires a menu that changes daily according to the day’s delivery. The freshest local produce in Naples and Southwest Florida appeals to pescatores as well as to healthy diners including vegans and vegetarians. They also have the healthiest options for those who are not plant-based or vegetarian. The chef of the day will modify any meal to meet your needs and the wait staff is always ready to greet you with a smile. A complete collection of superb, value wines makes the wine list one of Naples' best. The ambiance is casual, convivial and rustic, with blackboard specials, a cozy wine bar, and a half dozen or so locally brewed draft beers. My favorite dishes are: the spicy curry soup when available; Kale Caesar salad without cheese, dressing on the side; the Vegetarian pizza without cheese; and of course their local farm plate lights up this Nutritarian's palate. As a self-proclaimed beer snob, I relish the revolving local draft beers available to complement my meal. It is easily my favorite restaurant in town not only because of the superb quality of food and service, but especially because I can take a carnivore to dinner without that awkward pause of them staring perplexed at an all Vegan menu foreign to them. The Local currently has 58 reviews on Yelp with an average of just over four stars, where five stars is considered the best of the best. Try it today, you will not be disappointed.
Ps. Happy Cow will only let me rate The Local a four out of five because it does serve meat, but it is a five in my book.

Pros: Farm to plate, Revolving local draft beers, Chef is very accommodating
