Sometimes it takes a while for word to reach us, which is why we haven't reported previously on the closure of the Quiznos outlet at Fourth and Spring streets in downtown Little Rock. That leaves the sandwich chain/franchise operation, which used to have at least half a dozen Little Rock area outlets, just two -- kiosks at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport and in the Donaghey Student Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. We've heard reports that a fairly distinguished Little Rock chef/restaurateur has taken over the storefront space, but as we have yet been unable to confirm them, we'll have to keep you posted.

Arkansas Ale House opened in mid-June in Diamond Bear Brewery's new digs on North Broadway in North Little Rock. (That's right, North Broadway -- it exists, and you access it by continuing to drive straight ahead once you cross the Broadway Bridge, or at least until the Broadway Bridge undergoes rebuilding and becomes inaccessible.

Here's an update, based on an invitation-only, preopening visit, on One Eleven at the Capital, which has replaced Ashley's as the higher-end restaurant at Little Rock's Capital Hotel, 111 W. Markham St. (See what they did there? The name also reflects the first address for the hotel's owners, the Stephens family, which was 111 Main St.)

Ray's gets a loud, 'Ole, y'all!'

"We won't have to sneak food in our purse anymore!" It was our first thought when we heard an actual restaurant had opened near the Cinemark Colonel Glenn 18 + Xtreme theater. Finally.

Michael Chaffin, the chief operating officer of Little Rock's Capital Hotel, says the hotel's restaurant that used to be Ashley's at the Capital will reopen for dinner Friday as One Eleven at the Capital, reflecting the hotel's 111 W. Markham St. address. The restaurant has undergone a complete physical makeover that Chuck Magill, the hotel's marketing director, described in May as designed to make the place feel more "convivial" but still classy.

'New' Lulav, classic flavors

"That place has more lives than a cat," proclaimed a colleague when the word arrived about another reincarnation of Lulav on Sixth Street between Louisiana and Center.

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.

Getting piggy in Bentonville

If you haven't been here recently (or at all), you might be surprised at how much Arkansas' 10th largest city resembles a leafy Sonoma Valley wine village, particularly in the area immediately around the downtown that marks ground zero for the planet's largest employer.

Rocket 21, once of Hillcrest and now inside the Wyndham Riverfront Hotel, 2 Riverfront Place, North Little Rock, sent out an email blast to its customers sadly saying that the restaurant has stopped serving dinner and transferred most of its menu items to the Riverfront Steakhouse in the same hotel, leading management to now tout "two great menus in one location."
