Restaurant transitions: La Hacienda closing for renovations, end near for Silvek's, Raduno expands menu

La Hacienda, 3024 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, has announced it will close starting June for renovations -- a major face-lift for kitchen and dining room -- and planning to reopen in mid-August. Fernando Alvarez says he's waiting on his architects to establish the exact dates. The phone number is (501) 661-0600. This won't affect the two other central Arkansas La Haciendas -- the original, 3836 Central Ave., Hot Springs, and in the Ferguson Plaza Shopping Center, 17401 Interstate 30 (on the frontage road), Benton, which will remain open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily. And two other central Arkansas Alvarez family scions will still be serving: Cotijas, 406 Louisiana St., Little Rock, and the newly resurrected La Casa Real, 3700 John F. Kennedy Blvd., North Little Rock.
