What is Little Rock’s restaurant scene like?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Little Rock's restaurant scene is in the process of blossoming. As a generation of chefs inspired by the legendary Jacques and Suzanne's retirement, they're being replaced by the city's New Americana wave. The star of this revival is former New Orleans-based chef Lee Richardson, who came to the city after Hurricane Katrina and who supervised the renovation and reinvigoration of Capital Hotel's Capital Bar and Grill and Ashley's restaurant.

The market itself is one of the most highly restaurant saturated cities of its size in America. There is a strong leaning towards burger joints, Mexican and Mexican-inspired restaurants, and bistro-style cafés in the area, as well as a large number of sushi bars and barbecue joints. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and reserve your table to get a taste of it all.
