Restaurant Notes:

Local 188 has its roots in Spain but draws influence from all over the Mediterranean to create a unique blend of old and new. Staying true to Maine’s seasonal offerings, Chef Jay Villani constructs a menu that is both innovative and familiar. Ingredients are sourced from local farmers, foragers, and fishermen.  Many components of the menu, such as breads, charcuterie, pickled vegetables, and desserts, are prepared in-house.
