Based on the concept that 90% of their raw ingredients come from within 360 miles of Seattle, Local 360 is a great place to visit if you want an authentic taste of the Pacific Northwest. It is easy to locate on the corner of 1st Ave & Bell St. in Belltown, which is the starting point for the quieter section of the neighborhood. Local 360 features a small outdoor seating area, perfect for sunny days and has 2 floors of seating on the interior. The decor has a rustic vibe accented by dark wood, low lighting, and simple table settings.
My gal pal ordered from the specials menu as well. She had the Smoked Leg of Lamb – Smoked lamb, rhubarb glaze, Ozette potatoes, green garbanzos, and carrot hummus, $19. The smoked flavor in the lamb was quite robust. You definitely have to love a nice hit of smokiness to enjoy this dish. The meat was nicely cooked and the vegetables were well seasoned.
From the regular brunch menu, my husband ordered the Buttermilk Biscuits & Gravy – housemade biscuits smothered in sausage gravy; plus an addition of fried chicken, $15. This dish never disappoints. Their fried chicken was nice and crispy. The biscuits were light, fluffy and perfectly absorbed the gravy without getting soggy. Local 360 definitely knows how to do delicious comfort food.
Our other dining companion ordered the Chicken Fried Steak – mushroom gravy, eggs, and biscuit, $14. He cleaned his plate, so I can only assume he enjoyed his meal. I didn’t taste it myself.
If you are looking for a solid weekend brunch in Seattle, Local 360 is definitely a great option. Between the regular menu and the daily specials, you are sure to find something tasty for everyone in your group. They also have an extensive list of locally distilled spirits, wine, and beer in case you go there super thirsty.
