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

posted: 05/26/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

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.

Third St. in Little Rock's River Market District that previously, very briefly, housed the stationary incarnation of Michael Juliano's Hot Dog Mike.

Taco Beer Burrito opens today in time for Cinco de Mayo, next door to Blue Canoe Brewing Co. in the former Brown Sugar Bakeshop space, 419 E. Third St., Little Rock. Arkansas Online reports the taproom/Mexican restaurant will incorporate Blue Canoe's beers into the tacos and burritos, according to co-owner Ida Cowan: "It's kind of like street trucks but indoors," she said of the food selection. "Our meat is going to be chuck roast, beef and chicken, and that's slow cooked for six to eight hours in our beers." The menu, which includes gluten-free and vegetarian options, will offer three tacos, four burritos, four salsas, a yellow cheese dip and two desserts, plus four kinds of margaritas on tap. Hours will be the same as the brewery: 4-9 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, 4-10 p.m. Friday, 1-10 p.m. Saturday and 1-8 p.m. Sunday, with eventual plans to open for lunch.
