Our Story

From the chef and owner of Thyme Café & Market, Maire Byrne has opened her second restaurant, Local Kitchen + Wine Bar, a casual dining experience in Santa Monica that pairs small seasonal plates and handcrafted Neapolitan style pizza with exceptional wines and small batch cocktails.

The menu takes a modern approach to fresh, locally sourced ingredients including Kenter Canyon Farm’s herbs and lettuces, Hobb’s Pepperoni and seasonal farmers’ market produce. The wood burning pizza oven is the main focal point of the convivial bar.

I have always felt that the simple act of bringing people together to enjoy beautiful food grown, raised and prepared with love is the most sincere act of sharing and showing someone that you care —Maire Byrne.
