The culinary scene in Seattle impresses on many fronts. The city boasts copious restaurants where talented chefs cook up regional specialties with immense thought and care. At Local 360, however, the kitchen takes delectable food (with a sustainable, conscientious bent) to an entirely new level.

This congenial neighborhood spot specializes in locally sourced, modern American comfort food; most ingredients come from within a 360-mile radius of the venue. The restaurant's website states, "We believe that local produce, meat and grains are more than mere vehicles for nutrients, but vital parts of the intricate system that supports our environment and the good folks who live here."
Diners begin their culinary adventure with the deviled eggs, PB&J bon bons or a delectable beet salad, before tucking into heartier dishes like braised rabbit leg and vegetable ragout, smoked pork shank or heirloom farro with sugar pumpkin, mascarpone and mushrooms.
Brunch gems range from biscuits with sausage gravy and French toast to vegetable pot pie. The perfect grand finale can be found by plunging into desserts like apple fritters or red velvet moon pies. Adult beverages include the Farmhouse Buttered Rum or Hazelnut Coffee.
