Restaurant transitions: Arbela Middle Eastern Grill finally open, Thanksgiving Day meals

posted: 11/19/2015 5:45 a.m. Discuss

To paraphrase the poet, the best laid plans of mice, men and restaurateurs gang aft agley, and Buck Sayyah, co-owner of Arbela Middle Eastern Grill, on the ground floor of the Tower Building, 323 Center St. (actually on West Fourth between Louisiana and Center streets), Little Rock, has had his share of plans go agley, up to and including having to replace the vent-a-hood that the former tenant, Natchez, had left behind. Sayyah says all his inspection problems have now been dealt with and that he was, as of our deadline, planning to have opened his doors Wednesday. Hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, and his phone number, (501) 374-2633, which had briefly been disconnected, is now once again functional.
