The Heritage Grille Steak and Fin, the new restaurant in the Marriott Hotel, West Markham and Louisiana streets, Little Rock (formerly Pancetta Regional Kitchen & Wine Bar) is now open, says James Schelnick, the hotel's director of special events. The dinner menu, still going through some tweaking after an extended soft opening, focuses (as you might suspect from the name) on steak and fresh seafood, the latter depending heavily on what's available at any given moment (Schelnick noted the "nonfin" fresh oysters, lobster and crab).

Sometimes it takes a while for word to reach us, which is why we haven't reported previously on the closure of the Quiznos outlet at Fourth and Spring streets in downtown Little Rock. That leaves the sandwich chain/franchise operation, which used to have at least half a dozen Little Rock area outlets, just two -- kiosks at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport and in the Donaghey Student Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. We've heard reports that a fairly distinguished Little Rock chef/restaurateur has taken over the storefront space, but as we have yet been unable to confirm them, we'll have to keep you posted.
