About Local 188

Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine using local ingredients. We have two versions of the classic paella, one has chourico and chicken and the other is all seafood. Menu is printed nightly with frequent changes in steak, soup, tortilla, gnocchi and risotto, as well as appetizer and fish specials. Our menu offers a full range from tapas (small plates), raciones (medium plates) to entrees (large plates), creating a set of choices for any size appetite. Weekend brunch is served from 9am till 2pm, Saturday and Sunday. Our wine list is extensive featuring over 100 bottles with specialization in Spain, France and Italy. Our beer list features local micros, seasonal, imports and domestics with selections from Bunker, Allagash, Dogfish head, Oxbow, Unibroue, Brooklyn and Smuttynose to name but a few. Not to be overlooked is the ever changing array of house designed and made cocktails, many of which feature intriguing and delicious infusions.
