The Local Pub & Grill is one of those gems you tell everyone within earshot about - and then instantly regret it, because you want to keep it all to yourself. It's simply gorgeous inside, with rustic woods seamlessly blending into thick slabs of glimmering granite... but it's anything but stuffy. The staff is equally unpretentious and eager to tell you about their favorite dish (The stuffed mushrooms are heaven.) or go-to handcrafted cocktail (Anything with grapefruit for us, thanks!). On any given day, you'll find families filling the restaurant portion of the place, playing trivia on one of the many handheld game consoles your server helpfully provides. In the bar, there's the after-work crowd watching the game (And each other. Definitely not a "meat market," but if you're single, you'll find plenty of new friends to share a drink or play a game with.). On the patio, you'll find the fundraisers, earning money for their school while playing games like shuffleboard and cornhole. Pulling it all together is the team of local owners who live within a stone's throw of the place (On the Old Road, near BevMo.). This is the local spot that shows off the best of Santa Clarita and embodies the down-home charm that drew so many to our community. Haven't tried it yet? It's time to stay local - and put The Local on your list.

Maybe you've already experienced the refined ambience and incredible authentic flavors of Sabor Cocina Mexicana in the Bridgeport Marketplace. Chances are, though, that you've never sauntered into the chic restaurant with the intention of letting your highly-experienced waitstaff place your order for you.

What arrived to our table was exquisitely delectable, especially when paired with their fresh seasonal margarita. What will be in store on your next visit?

New Year's resolutions tend toward the flavorless. "Drink less, eat less, exercise more, blah, blah, blah." It's enough to make anyone dive face-first into an eight-layer chocolate cake.

This filling sandwich is stuffed with turkey, turkey bacon, sprouts, mozzarella, tomatoes, avocado and mayo and served with your choice of home fries, French fries or, for the truly committed - fresh fruit. 523-7282

SCV fans of All You Can Eat (AYCE! Yes, it's enough of a "thing" to have its own acronym!) already know that Kogiya 2 Korean BBQ is worth every one of the family-owned location's five-star online reviews.
