Best of Boston

2012 Best South Boston Restaurant, Neighborhood

Local 149

The fried Brussels sprouts smothered in chipotle-lime sauce justify a trip to this one-and-a-half-year-old hot spot all by themselves. But as long as we’re here, we’ll also take the tater tots poutine and the pressed-duck club sandwich, and follow it all with a Delirium Tremens, just one great selection from the vast tap list. Chef Leah Dubois’s playful dishes taste even better against Local 149’s backdrop of rainbow-hued vintage seltzer bottles, chalkboard tables, and reclaimed wood floors.
