Restaurant Transitions: The Root Cafe expansion nears completion; Loblolly Creamery moving

posted: 12/08/2016 5:45 a.m. Comment 1

The Root Cafe, 1500 Main St., Little Rock, is nearing the completion of its multimonth expansion, says co-owner Jack Sundell. The new dining room has opened -- "It looks great and feels great," Sundell says -- expanding by 40 seats the indoor seating to 50. "There's lots of space, and it's nice and cozy and toasty, just in time for winter," he adds. The second bathroom is also open. "And we're plugging away at the kitchen, which we hope to have completed by end of the calendar year" -- sometime in January by the absolute latest, he says. That's the last step before the restaurant starts serving Wednesday-Saturday dinner. In the meanwhile, the once-a-month Friday dinner has expanded to weekly, ticketed, five-course meals through Dec. 23 (seating for 30, $40 with beer and wine additional; visit centralarkansastickets.com), with what Sundell says will probably be an open, table-service dinner on "New Year's Eve eve," Dec. 30. The restaurant's current hours are 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday; it'll be closed Christmas and New Year's Day. The phone number is (501) 414-0423; email theroot@therootcafe.com.

Restaurant Transitions: The Pizzeria reopening; Sweet Soul moving; Jerky's taking 'extended break'

posted: 12/01/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

The city of Little Rock issued a certificate of occupancy last week to close a long-delayed permitting process.

There are plenty of places to eat in downtown Little Rock. There are relatively few options, however, for folks who want to eat "healthy."

MUSIC REVIEW: Tenors kick off tour with holiday classics

posted: 11/27/2016 3:28 a.m. Discuss

Christmas is a hot time in Southern Hemispherical Australia, so there's a certain irony in an Aussie-based vocal group doing a program of pieces about sleigh rides and snowy scenery.
