RESTAURANT REVIEW + PHOTOS: In Argenta, Kamikaito's 200 dishes fill bill

posted: 10/05/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Restaurant Transitions: Captain Hooks under construction on JFK; Three Fold, The Vault now open

posted: 09/28/2017 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Our eagle-eyed readers report some activity, indicating work appears to have finally gotten underway, at Captain Hooks Fish & Chicken, 6725 John F. Kennedy Blvd., North Little Rock, next to Indian Hills Shopping Center. A new streetside sign has been erected, interior construction work appears to have resumed, or at least started, and one of our eagle-eyed correspondents spotted a soft-drink company service truck in the parking lot. The grounds, which provoked the city to plaster the front door with "notice of public nuisance" signs because the owners weren't properly taking care of the green space on the property, have been cleaned up and the notice removed. However, some windows, including the drive-through, still bear signs proclaiming the closure of the previous occupant, a Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins hybrid.

Restaurant Transitions: Graffiti's sold; Kamikaito open; The Fish House shut; Jerky’s gets eviction notice

posted: 09/21/2017 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

Armando Yoblanos and Patrick Dayer have bought Graffiti's, 7811 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, which had been up for sale since at least June 2016. Dayer, once the chef at Cafe St. Moritz, has been involved with the restaurant since at least the late '90s, and has connections to Paul Bash of Continental Cuisine, who opened the restaurant 32 years ago after the passing of Restaurant Jacques & Suzanne. Brokerage firm CBI Central Arkansas put the sale together; managing partner Connor Grimes says the sale price remains under wraps at the behest of the parties involved. He expects there will be no changes for some months while the new owners figure out ways to maintain the existing client base and work to bring in new customers. The restaurant phone number is (501) 224-9079.
