Restaurant Transitions: Terry’s Finer Foods closing temporarily, JJ’s Grill to open in Little Rock

posted: 06/23/2016 5:45 a.m. Comments 2

Terry's Finer Foods, the Restaurant, 5018 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, which closed a month or so ago during a transition of chefs, is closing -- temporarily -- again. "Yes, we decided to take a summer break and reopen in the fall," says co-owner Lex Golden, explaining that "Many of our regular clients leave town this time of year and we just decided to focus on expanding our deli and carry-out products as well as settling Ellen's Antiques into the building. It will give us a break and the opportunity to reinvent ourselves this fall." The grocery/deli that was there before the restaurant will remain open and, Golden says, "we will incorporate the pizzeria space (the original restaurant/bistro) into the reopening" once the Pizzeria @ Terry's Finer Foods (which has been occupying the original Terry's restaurant space) finishes its southward move to 4910 Kavanaugh, into the former Revolution Gym. The restaurant phone number, (501) 663-4154, will presumably survive.
