updated: 01/19/2017 11:58 a.m. Comment 1

If you've been on the edge of your culinary seat awaiting the opening of Petit & Keet Bar & Grill sometime in February, you might as well settle back for a much longer wait. Restaurateur Jim Keet says the scope of his collaboration with Little Rock culinary legend Louis Petit, in the former Restaurant 1620/1620 Savoy, 1620 Market St., Little Rock, has expanded from a six-week, "couple of hundred thousand-dollar" to a six-month, "million-dollar project." He's now projecting an opening in late April "if we're lucky, around the first of May if we're not."

Restaurant Transitions: La Hacienda being remodeled; Hillcrest Market & Nosh looks to open by end of March

posted: 01/12/2017 5:45 a.m. Discuss

Hillcrest Market & Nosh is what Tomas Bohm is calling his newest enterprise, going into the former location of Hillcrest Artisan Meats, 2807 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, which co-owners Brian Brown and Tara Portiva-Brown closed Dec. 31. Bohm, who brought you The Pantry and Hillcrest's Pantry Crest, says he's hoping to get the place open by the end of March. It will not, as it was originally described, be quite a deli because Bohm doesn't like the term, but it will vend cured-in-house meats and house-made cheeses, soups, panini and other sandwiches, grab-and-go salads and possibly some larger scale, more exotic meat items (including cooked-to-take-home lamb shanks, pork shanks, rabbit and duck breast). The market end of things will sell Pantry pates and brats and, in pasteurized jars, sauerkraut and cabbage, drinks and some of the Arkansas Fresh Bakery's breads.
