Not necessarily a new kid on the block, the Local Peasant is one of the harbingers of gastropubs (happily) to invade Los Angeles. With its classic yet modern charm, The Local Peasant manages to be consistent with both great service and solid great tasting food.
Located on in a non-descript’ building in Sherman Oaks (the door is hidden behind an MTA bus stop), with vintage subway tile,low light, and back lit by the frosted wire glass, The Local Peasant welcomes you to a chalkboard menu of specialty beers and paper menu of gastropub classics that tend to lean on the pub side of things.
Their not to be missed Salted Crisps with Vinegar, comes with its own nifty spray bottle of their vinegar blend makes it ‘oh so fun’ to eat the ‘crisps.’ Another pub classic of Spiced Nuts, served with jicama has a nice punch of flavor to the savory nuts. The main courses features the more gastro feel with a Tuna Tartar that looks and tastes so good, it definitely does not belong on a ‘peasant’s’ table.
The interesting take on the slider with pulled beef, The Peasant Minis are savorily filled with pickled carrots and cabbage. Their Fries that take the thickly cut stance are served its house sauce that has a nice zing but always fares well with its usual ketchup companion. You can say that the The Local Peasant has a double personality where it will satisfy the pub goer looking for their neighborhood watering hole and the foodie who requires nothing but the best on their palate.
