Local Foods is owned by Benjy Levit and chef Dylan Murray, and in some ways is a casual extension of the Benjy's brand. Designer Aaron Rambo has wiped out the clutter of Antone's and brought in a modern look finished with some retro touches like exposed brick, white subway tile and an aluminum trough full of real Coke and Imperial Sugar Dr. Pepper.

There are shelves of local products, including Texas Hill Country olive oil, Worcestershire sauce from Grateful Bread, local honey and Benjy's branded items like beer nuts and granola. But the main focus is the prepared menu of sandwiches, salads and healthy sides. But this is no Subway, with sandwich offerings like smoked salmon with local greens and red onion jam on a poppy seed bagel, a duck confit panini with melted brie, arugula and cranberry preserves and a Gulf shrimp and blue crab sandwich on ciabatta. Want to indulge? Don't miss the sweet soft-serve ice cream.
