Our take on Loca Luna: We've always liked the food and enjoyed the atmosphere, but we just hadn't yet found the single menu item that would get us back as more than occasional customers. Given the diversity of the menu at this Riverdale neighborhood eatery and watering hole, that's always been kind of a surprise.

Donnie Ferneau Jr. is closing his Good Food by Ferneau, 521 Main St., North Little Rock, which will hold its last meal service Jan. 30, to become the executive chef at the new 1836 Club, which, as you recall, is the private supper club going into the former Packet House, 1406 Cantrell Road, Little Rock. "I cannot thank my customers and the Argenta community enough for their support of Good Food," Ferneau says in a news release. "While I'm sad to leave, the opportunity ... was an offer I simply couldn't refuse." And this posting on the Good Food by Ferneau Facebook page: "Although this transition will be bittersweet, Chef Ferneau is very excited for the future. Until then, he will still be able to do private events, catering, and can even rent out party rooms and spaces at the new location once it is open. If you have any remaining Gift Cards, please use them before Jan. 30. ... [If] there is any furniture that you may like, feel free to contact us via Facebook for more information." Target opening is sometime this spring, but the deadline to submit applications to become a charter member is March 1; visit the1836club.com. Charter members won't have to pay an application fee; individual dues will be $250 monthly.
