Techno pumping, the concrete floored, high ceilinged industrial meets country chic space that is Local 1205 is a feast for the eyes and a treat for the taste buds. The long promised (and even longer delayed) neighbor to Abbot Kinney’s Other Room is an artisanal market cum restaurant with fresh salads, soups, melts and sandwiches you can nosh inside, on the patio or to-go.
The market portion of Local 1205 has much to admire though it appears the space can accommodate much more than the current offerings. The bare aesthetic may be a conscious choice but for the operation to survive and thrive it shall prove wise to maximize the square footage to better effect. Abbot Kinney real estate ain’t cheap.
