Seasonal Menus

Atlas Bar opened up in SoMa (South Main) earlier this year and quickly became a go-to spot for neighborhood folks like myself to stop in for a well-crafted drink. Now, after spending some time becoming familiar with their audience they are ready to roll out a whole new set of …




It is strange to think that just a few years ago we complained about the lack of brunch options in Little Rock. Since then brunch has exploded and is frequently one of the busiest service periods for many restaurants. The emerging West Village area (West Rodney Parham), however, has not …




One thing I have learned in 6+ years of covering the local food scene is if a space is going to make it they have to evolve. This is the case with any business, but it is especially true in the restaurant world. Tastes change, chefs come and go, and …




Petit and Keet wraps up their first two years with the largest menu to date, this time adding or significantly adjusting 10 different dishes. While that may not seem like a lot on a few of the larger menu restaurants, Petit & Keet’s dedication to a small menu means 1/3 …
