San Antonio, FL – Chef Curtis Beebe and his wife Rebecca, of the critically acclaimed restaurant Pearl in the Grove in Dade City, are branching out with their second location, LOCAL Public House, opening January 2014 in San Antonio. LOCAL will provide a more casual, everyday venue, compared to Pearl in the Grove. In the historic San Ann Market, LOCAL has exposed brick walls, relaxing dining room, a huge outdoor terrace, and an inviting bar. Local beers and wines on tap (a new trend nationally which allows purveyors to serve better vintages at lower prices) will complement the focused menu.
Keeping with Beebe’s emphasis on locally sourced seasonal ingredients and straight ahead cooking style, the small menu will feature classics new and old: Chicken liver po’ boy on their own fresh bread ($12), regional cheese and charcuterie plate ($15), imaginative bar snacks like andouille corndogs ($7) and brasserie classics like shrimp remoulade ($6) all using the same trusted farms and vendors of flagship Pearl in the Grove just 6 miles away.
The Beebe’s felt the area was ready for more local establishments catering to a sophisticated yet casual patron.
“After dinner at Pearl, a lot of folks say, ‘that was great…what’s next?’ ”, said Chef/Owner Curtis Beebe. “LOCAL can be the next stop for this growing community. We wanted somewhere to go on our nights off…and we wanted to stay in town and not drive to Tampa to have the level of service and food we crave. We needed a good local casual restaurant and pub, and this will be it. ”
LOCAL Public House (wine, beer, full menu, desserts and pastries made in house) will open January 2014, at 32750 Pennsylvania Ave in San Antonio and will open 7 days a week at 11AM.
