The set-price, set-menu format wasn't quite working.
​More on the new dinner scene launching Friday at Local Mission Eatery. In "Buzz Machine" this morning, Jonathan Kauffman remarked on the passing of Local Mission's twice-weekly pop-up-style dinners in favor of a la carte service, Weds.-Sat., 5:30-10 p.m. The change follows the arrival of a beer and wine license. Local Mission owner Yaron Milgrom tells us more via e-mail. Turns out the set-menu, set-price format was too limiting (the restaurant could seat only 30 per twice-weekly dinner), and the price ― $65 when Kauffman showed up earlier this year ― too steep.

"So we went back to the drawing board," Milgrom writes. "Within the traditional setup, we wanted to offer something new. We took a menu feature we really liked and applied it across the board ― every dish is available appetizer or main size. This way, diners can construct an app-and-main meal or a shared plates or even a tasting menu of sorts."

The menu's posted at Local's website; each item has an app/main price. As for the Lucky Dog New York steak ($14/$25), Milgrom says that, starting next week, that'll morph into roasted goat.

Cow lovers, you've been warned.
