Restaurants I'll miss in Little Rock (in no particular order) Part Three - The Final of the 20

Sonny Williams' Steak Room

The Lobster & Filet
Grilled Halibut with Crushed Tomato & White Wine Butter
Scallop Appetizer Special for Valentines Day

The Faded Rose

Shrimp Tchoupitoulas
Gumbo & a nice people watching patio, mimosa

Chi's Restaurant Group

Chi's on Rebsamen: Thai Basil Noodles with Beef & Shrimp
Dim Sum Sundays at Chi on Shackleford
Also at the Shackleford location:  the half boneless duck selection comes with steamed buns, scallions, and hoisin.  One of my favorites!

Vesuvio Bistro

Sea Bass with Gnocchi
Shiitake mushrooms over grilled polenta
Charcuterie selection: prosciutto & asiago cheese


SO many great memories at this place!!  SO many........particularly happy hours with pharmaceutical rep friends always on the patio smoking cigarettes after a day of visiting with cardiologists about risk factors for heart disease.  Intimate atmosphere, higher price points, but quite memorable.
When they first opened, my friend Angelica and I ate there so often, we ended up on their print ad in the AR Times and on their web site.  I can't believe they took us down after all these years!
The  French Onion soup and steak sandwich option at lunch was a great deal, but it looks like the lunch menu has changed.  That may not be available anymore...


Just say gnocchi and I will be there.
Some of the best desserts can be found at Natchez.

The Fold

Sangria pitcher - YUM!!
Beet Carpaccio & Fun Atmosphere
Bright Lighting & Tasty Tacos!!

Maddie's Place

Potato Crawfish Gnocchi & Much More Awesomeness
Grilled Salmon with Roasted Garlic Grits and Stewed Okra
Half Jambalaya add seafood
Chef Brian's hog at the AR Times Hog Roast

South on Main

Great place to hang out with friends.  That's my husband in the green. Next to him is Brett. See, we found Brett's iPhone 5S in the middle of the road on Highway 10. When he called his phone, we answered, and we met up at South on Main. We all hit it off & became friends. Hopefully something like this will happen to us in Portland!
The Ribeye Cap on the lunch menu
Too hard to say no

Cheers in the Heights

Smoked salmon spread and a lovely outdoor fireplace
Chicken & Dumplings!
Half of the Sea Scallops entree at lunch

Brave New Restaurant

Herb - Crusted Spiced Salmon

Mahi Mahi special of the day - I only wish parking was better!  But always delicious.

Thanks for all of these wonderful dishes, Little Rock!  I will miss seeing you all!!
