Starting with the tony Cache in the River Market District with a menu that matches its upscale decor. Located on Clinton Boulevard with outdoor and bar dining available in addition to the more formal dining room. Cache also offers valet parking in the over-crowded River Market; you probably want to take advantage.
Not to be missed is the family-owned Bruno's Little Italy on Main Street. Bruno family members have owned and operated their restaurants since 1945 and they still cook and run them. Food is outstanding and so is the ambiance ... indoors and outdoors. Sitting right next door to Bruno's and sharing valet parking is another family-owned restaurant, Samantha's Tap Room & Wood Grill. A bit more trendy but in a fun, casual way and, do they ever have a way with desserts! You want to plan ahead.
For the best neighborhood pizza, sandwich, salad & bar, Raduno's can't be beaten. There is always a crowd for their very original Sunday Brunch. Sunnyside Up Eggs on Boulevard Bread with sliced tomatoes and a sauce that is indescribable.
Its down the street, in Soma, from the Root Cafe and almost next door to the equally unique South on Main Restaurant. Owned by Mary Steenburgen (a local gal) and Ted Danson, South on Main offers a near-radical New South menu that is priceless. Almost as priceless as the Live Local Music served up center stage in this iconic converted warehouse ... very southern, very urban.
Restaurant recommendations review could go on and on in Little Rock but we will wrap it up with the one of a kind Dizzy's Gypsy Bistro on River Market Drive, a few doors down from Zin Urban Wine Bar.
