The Golden Dish has reviewed Local 188.
It’s always true that when the boss is in the restaurant it runs better and everyone is happier for it. In this case, with Villani back at the stove you’re apt to get a very good meal.
I’m glad to reacquaint myself with Local 188. With so many new restaurants springing up in Portland all the time, it’s nice to go back to an old favorite, especially when it’s fresh and good.
