posted: 05/05/2016 5:45 a.m. Gallery Comment 1

Taco Beer Burrito opens today in time for Cinco de Mayo, next door to Blue Canoe Brewing Co. in the former Brown Sugar Bakeshop space, 419 E. Third St., Little Rock. Arkansas Online reports the taproom/Mexican restaurant will incorporate Blue Canoe's beers into the tacos and burritos, according to co-owner Ida Cowan: "It's kind of like street trucks but indoors," she said of the food selection. "Our meat is going to be chuck roast, beef and chicken, and that's slow cooked for six to eight hours in our beers." The menu, which includes gluten-free and vegetarian options, will offer three tacos, four burritos, four salsas, a yellow cheese dip and two desserts, plus four kinds of margaritas on tap. Hours will be the same as the brewery: 4-9 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, 4-10 p.m. Friday, 1-10 p.m. Saturday and 1-8 p.m. Sunday, with eventual plans to open for lunch. Call (501) 246-5315 or visit the Blue Canoe Facebook page.

Restaurant transitions: Sonny Williams' remodeled, La Casa Real reopened, Mother's Day specials

We reported a few months back that Andy Agar, founder of Sonny Williams' Steak Room in the Museum Center, 500 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock, had bought the restaurant back. The fruits of his "homecoming" have begun to surface. The restaurant recently underwent a remodel, and now has two separate private dining areas to accommodate parties of 10-55, separated from the main dining room by floor-to-ceiling partitions with "rich wood and beveled glass," according to a news release. That's in addition to an indoor patio private dining area that serves 34 that's been there since the restaurant opened in 1999. A new, red-tufted leather "celebrity booth" provides intimacy for up to a party of six.
