File photo. File photo.

The Local

824 Hinton Ave.

633 W. Main St.

The promise of a good menu gets people into restaurants, but great service keeps them coming back. No one knows this better than Peter Shankman, a devoted fan of Morton’s Steakhouse who once jokingly tweeted that the restaurant should meet him at the airport with a porterhouse—and they did. Sure, that seems a little extreme, but readers know that’s the same kind of attentiveness that causes them to return to The Local (and Maya, for that matter) time and again.
