Party Earth Local Review

The Scene

Local in Silver Lake, Los Angeles is a popular neighborhood restaurant with organic/local fare. Enjoy some tasty eats grown right here in LA with Party Earth.

No tragically hip neighborhood would be complete without a tragically hip, locally sourced restaurant to go along with it. And for many in Silver Lake, that restaurant is undoubtedly the aptly named Local.

Walking through the large windowed entry, patrons often notice the small but popular salad bar first, seeing as this by-the-pound buffet of self-serve goodness is packed with sweet produce worlds away from anyone’s soggy Sizzler experience.

Reformed hippies, trendy Angelenos, and eco-conscious foodies all flock to this eatery by day to enjoy breakfast and lunch dishes like brioche French toast, quinoa oatmeal, and vegan club sandwiches, or to try one of the daily specials scrawled across the chalkboards above the ordering counter.

Idyllic paintings of grazing cattle adorn the back walls of the adjoining patio, home to most of the venue’s seating, so diners can grab a place at the heavy wooden tables and watch the colorful madness of Sunset Boulevard flow by.

The venue is hardly a raucous destination, but tatted partiers heading to nearby watering holes frequently drop in to fill up on braised tongue and cauliflower couscous, topped off with a few rounds from the small selection of wine and beer – all local, of course – before heading out for the night.

Not everyone shares Local’s ethos, but regardless of one’s interest in environmentally friendly products, this local favorite offers dishes perfect for a healthy start to any day or night.

Tip from Emma:

There’s full waiter service here, but it’s usually faster to just order at the counter and then have them bring your food out. And if you want a cocktail to go with your grub, head over to the Thirsty Crow saloon right next door! They’ll deliver your food right to the bar.

  • Crowd

    Silver Lake hipsters, trendy yuppies, bohos, young families with kids, healthy couples with dogs, the crunchy set, the yoga types, and pregamers hoping to offset the alcohol they are destined to consume later that night, 20s to 40s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Ambient playlist sticks mostly to selections that will never grace any mainstream radio dial. There’s a freakish upper body of an old mannequin in the bathroom.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Full menu of organic, locally sourced (“whenever possible”) food and drinks. Dog friendly.

  • Prices

    Snacks $5–$8, breakfast $7–$13, lunch $6–$13, dinner $11–$17, salad bar $8/pound. Beer $6, wine $8/glass or $32/bottle.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: t-shirts, tattered old jeans, tattered new jeans meant to look like old jeans, standard hipster flannel garb, business wear, yoga pants, mom jeans, blouses, colorful dresses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Whenever the tummy has written a check that only an organic meal can cash.

  • Close By

    Thirsty Crow (2939 West Sunset Boulevard) is home to a saloon atmosphere and large assortment of craft cocktails and whiskey drinks that have helped make it a destination for bourbon lovers from all over the city.

Ehh it's ok

This is one of the first entries I am writing regarding my brother's visit to LA this weekend. My brother is particularly fond of food and wanted to find a good place to meet up with some LA friends and catch up with them. Somehow someone suggested Local as the brunch spot so we decided to try it out. The setting (for lunch) is cafeteria style which I didn't have a problem with. We ordered our food at the counter and waited for our server to bring our food. I found the server to be very friendly. So service is a plus for cafeteria style dining. I order the pork burger for my lunch. Normally I do not finnish an entire burger, but however, I was able to finish this one. I found the burger to be very flavorful. The price is inexpensive for lunch. I'm not sure if the prices increase for dinner so I have to come back for a follow up.
More than a neighborhood spot

Even though I don’t live in the neighborhood I was allowed to eat here. When you enter this barebones restaurant you’re greeted with a salad bar for takeout, a feature that frightened the carnivore in me. Though, I was pleased with the menu. I ended up with half a BBQ chicken and a side of mac and cheese, both were delicious. In addition to the meat section they have enough items to make any vegetarian happy. While short on drinks, Local makes up for it with flavor.
