posted: 10/20/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

The best laid plans of mice, men and restaurateurs gang aft agley. Case in point: the passing of a once-planned Oct. 1 opening for the long-delayed David's Burgers outlet in the eastern end cap of the River Market's Ottenheimer Market Hall, 400 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock. The folks at the Maumelle headquarters aren't commenting on a new target opening date, but Diana Long, director of River Market operations for the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau, says it's going to be somewhere in the vicinity of Thanksgiving.

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.
