Restaurant Transitions: New sushi restaurant in Argenta waiting to open; new Pei Wei; taco chain expands

posted: 10/13/2016 5:45 a.m. Comment 1

The original Oct. 1 target opening date has passed, and owner-chef Kiyen Kim, who also brought you Kiyens Seafood Steak and Sushi, 17200 Chenal Parkway, Little Rock, says he's waiting on the city permitting process before he opens the doors of his Kamikaito by Kiyens in the former Good Food by Ferneau/Argenta Market space, Sixth and Main streets, North Little Rock. Kim says the menu will be similar to the one at Kiyens -- sushi, hibachi meals and Asian-fusion entrees ( for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, possibly a little higher-end to match the neighborhood, but denies early rumors that he has been planning things like Korean-style pizza or Asian-fusion hot dogs. The new establishment does not, as far as we can tell, yet have a listed phone number; the one at the west Little Rock restaurant is (501) 821-7272.

Tell Me About It: Wife finds courage to fight damage of abuse 30 years ago

posted: 10/13/2016 1:45 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I tried denying it, ignoring it, running away from it for about 30 years. It caught up with me in the last year or two, knocking on my door, demanding "deal with this or die." (Or that's how I felt about it.) I sought help from a therapist. Actually several therapists. Still seeing one. I'm trying to work on it.
