The Local Eatery & Drinking Hole
The Local Eatery and Drinking Hole opened its doors in 2003, as a family owned and operated restaurant and bar. Mina Desiderio saw an opportunity to carve out a niche in the Financial District of Downtown San Diego. The philosophy was simple: Bring the beach and all things that define San Diego to downtown. The vision was to be an establishment that supported local sports teams, local cuisine, local beers, local music and local events, hence the name, The Local.
