We reported a few months back that Andy Agar, founder of Sonny Williams' Steak Room in the Museum Center, 500 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock, had bought the restaurant back. The fruits of his "homecoming" have begun to surface. The restaurant recently underwent a remodel, and now has two separate private dining areas to accommodate parties of 10-55, separated from the main dining room by floor-to-ceiling partitions with "rich wood and beveled glass," according to a news release. That's in addition to an indoor patio private dining area that serves 34 that's been there since the restaurant opened in 1999. A new, red-tufted leather "celebrity booth" provides intimacy for up to a party of six.

Restaurant transitions: Terry’s restaurant closed, La Madeleine opening April 21

posted: 04/14/2016 5:45 a.m. Comment 1

The departure last week of chef Jeffrey Moore from Terry's Finer Foods -- The Restaurant, 5018 Kavanaugh Blvd., Little Rock, precipitated a closure of the restaurant for what the voice-mail message on the restaurant's phone number, (501) 663-4154, said would be a couple of days, due to "staffing issues." In fact, the restaurant has closed for an indefinite period. Terry's co-owners Lex and Ellen Golden are using the situation to start making changes "that have been in the works for some time," Lex Golden says, including "retooling [the] dining room, kitchen and staff over the next few weeks." The closure has not affected the adjoining Terry's Finer Foods grocery and deli, which is staying open seven days a week, or the independently owned and operated The Pizzeria @ Terry's Finer Foods on the building's south side.
