In a small town in Wyoming, a new type of restaurant has been attracting Cody natives to this new, and delicious option inspired by fresh produce and healthy options for the community: The Local. Previously living in Nirobi, Africa, Peter and Faith Malimo decided to create an establishment that has both the locals and tourists talking. With a seasonal menu and a professional team of chefs, The Local has a fresh take on what food should taste like. This restaurant wants to create a comfortable environment for customers and provide a healthy option, aside from the steaks and cheeseburgers commonly found in Wyoming. The atmosphere is deli style during the day, and at night is transformed into a formal dining experience, complete with candles and lights. Additionally, the pictures found throughout the restaurant are taken by the owner and friend, whom are professional filmmakers and photographers previously working for organizations such as National Geographic. With a rich history and amazing food, The Local is inspiring the people of Cody, Wyoming one meal at a time.
