Located on the ground floor of the 18-room boutique hotel Sense Beach House, Local House feels more like a weekend hideaway than a restaurant. Grab a seat inside at one of the wing-back ocean-breeze-hued booths or bring a group and take over the terrace. Either way, order a mimosa pitcher made with freshly squeezed orange juice. A handful of overnight-braised and shredded brisket hides under two sunny-side-up eggs with yolks so runny they rupture at the slightest poke of a fork. What you'll want to do here is break the eggs and make sure to get a mashup of all ingredients — the combination of the brisket fluids and yolk will soften both the polenta hash and goat cheese crumbles. If there were ever a breakfast-meets-lunch dish of champions, this might be it.
