You could call it mixed signals: While one of our sharp-eyed readers was telling us that D'Carlo Ristorante & Pizzeria on Stagecoach Road at the Pulaski/Saline County line had recently started serving lunch, we were getting word from vendors that the place was shuttered tight as a drum during what were supposed to be business hours. They added that they were unable to get through by phone, sometimes not even getting the ancient voicemail message at (501) 407-0400 from founder Carl Orlando that new-ish owner Matthew Dodd never got around to changing.

Turns out it will be restaurant mogul Jerry Barakat, who operates Arthur's Steakhouse and Oceans at Arthur's, and his family, which continues to operate Terrace on the Green.
