Restaurant Transitions: Capers repairs; La Hacienda renovations; Buenos Aires looks to open at month's end

posted: 02/09/2017 4:30 a.m. Comment 1

Progress is being made in the repairs at Capers, 14502 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, where last month a cold snap resulted in a burst pipe in the fire suppression system in the attic and caused quite a bit of damage. Co-owner Mary Beth Ringgold says they're shooting to reopen next week -- Wednesday at the earliest -- but it's a "moving target." Much of the interior work is done -- wiring, ductwork, new Sheetrock and the flooring. Among the items still pending: new chairs. Ringgold and colleague Marilyn Greene have, in the meanwhile, been working on some new menu items, "true to our style," with plans to "ramp up the appetizers" and add some entrees. During the down time, Capers' subsidiary market has remained open. And the phone number has remained active: (501) 868-7600.
