Restaurant Transitions: Lunch ends at Bruno's; Arkansas Italian Food Festival; Cantina Cinco de Mayo coming to downtown

posted: 01/18/2018 4:30 a.m. Discuss

Friday was the last day of lunch service for Bruno's Little Italy, 310 Main St., Little Rock. Co-owner Gio Bruno explains that, "Because we do everything from scratch, the amount of extra prep and the amount of payroll to accomplish that (as well as having line cooks, servers and hosts each day)," they've never been able to make a profit in their yearlong experiment with lunch. Lack of available daytime parking has also been a factor, he suggests: "At night we have free valet parking, but in the daytime, if there is the slightest bit of [inclement] weather, we lose all our walk-in business." They've returned to dinner-only hours, 5-10 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. The phone number is (501) 372-7866.
