Restaurant transitions: Damgoode Pies to reopen; Latin American-Mediterranean spot set for Hillcrest

posted: 09/24/2015 5:42 a.m. Discuss

Damgoode Pies' Chief Operating Officer Roddy Crawford says there's now an Oct. 5 target date for the reopening of the original Hillcrest location, 2701 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, which has been undergoing renovations for several months. Owner Jeff Trine told our colleagues at Sync a couple of weeks ago that the building "was in pretty rough shape." Among the holdups was the need to replace most of the electrical system and all of the windows and the decision to replace the upstairs "beer closet" with a bar and keg cooler, which will allow the bringing in of kegs of its own beer line from the new River Market brewpub.

Tell Me About It: Somebody in dining group needs to chew out Mean Girl

posted: 09/24/2015 1:43 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: We belong to a 10-person gourmet group where eight of us get along well. One person is very picky about all kinds of things and makes snide comments during conversations where her input is not appropriate. All of us have been polite, accommodating and forgiving, but in the last few months she has chosen to single out one person for especially unkind treatment. Everyone listening to the insults is appalled, but rarely does anyone stand up in defense of the picked-upon person for fear of upsetting her more or becoming her next victim. Her husband is very passive and does nothing.
