With business license and health inspecti0n certificate now in hand, 5 p.m. today is the target for the opening for dinner of Ira's Park Hill Grill, formerly Elizabeth McMullen's E's Bistro, in the Lakehill Shopping Center, 3812 John F. Kennedy Blvd., North Little Rock. Lunch is expected to start Tuesday. Chef/owner Ira Mittleman has made extensive changes to the front of the house, including a new granite-topped bar, which, when the liquor license comes through -- Mittleman says that could happen any time -- he'll open at 4 p.m. (The restaurant already has a license to serve wine and beer, the first Park Hill restaurant to get one after the previously local-option dry area voted to go back to "wet.")

At the hostess station we're greeted by the proprietress, Nori Fryar, who says she'll sit us in her daughter-in-law's section. Later, our server begs leave of us because she has Nori's grandbaby at home to tend, and in fact, she only came in for the dinner rush because her mother-in-law was shorthanded.
