  If you’ve ever spent an extended period of time in the Northeast region of our country, you know that restaurant parking can often be at a premium. Hell, more than once I spent 30 minutes looking for a spot in Boston. Even in Little Rock, several restaurants have very …

I think like most parents, I really took my pre-kids life for granted, because little did I know NickJr and DisneyJr would be taking over my life shortly and I’d have grown up things to do but no time to get those things done. I met a friend for lunch …




My views from the week… Our Friday night dinner at Ciao Baci included more lows than highs, which is a shame, because I’ve had several good experiences at this Hillcrest restaurant over the past few months. One thing is for certain, chef Jeffrey Owens knows how to fry a bird. …




Last Tuesday night’s Tequila Experience Dinner at Local Lime, the first such dinner hosted by the restaurant, saw several masters of their crafts truly shine in a warm and friendly setting.

Slivers of local shiitakes, along with chunks of toasted …

My views from the week… On Tuesday morning, Hillcrest residents rejoiced as the much anticipated Mylo Coffee Co. officially opened its doors for business. Little Rock hasn’t seen this much excitement surrounding an eatery’s arrival since last year’s opening of South on Main in the SoMa District. I popped in during …




Sweet pickles are the Bobby Petrino of the pickle world.  Everyone loves to hate them.  But the lackluster examples at the supermarket belie the sweet pickle’s potential — homemade fermented sweet pickles that would never cheat on their wives, hire their mistresses, or wreck their motorcycles. These are full old …




My views from this week… I will never follow a strict Paleo diet. But Paleo or not, there’s no denying the good food coming out of the Little Rock’s newest truck, The Beast. It’s a tiny mobile eatery producing some big flavors, while specializing in this ever-popular eating lifestyle. Last …
