Creative sandwiches, salads and sides made with locally sourced ingredients, along with a nice selection of Texas brews, make this a top destination for lunch and early dinner in the University area. In a hip, industrial setting with splashes of blue and green, a simple counter-serve setup doles out the kind of sandwiches you've probably never dreamt of making at home—truffled egg salad, duck confit with melted Brie, and crunchy chicken with a nut crumble and provolone on a pretzel bun. Each comes with a couple of sides, the most popular being the lemongrass chicken soup and the housemade potato chips. With business booming, Local Foods recently added another branch in Upper Kirby (713/255-4440, 2555 Westheimer Road).
