I thought it was hard to find a place to eat on Thanksgiving… but I was wrong. Most Central Arkansas restaurants are going to be closed on Christmas Day. The few I’ve been able to scare up:
Ashley’s at the Capital Hotel is offering breakfast only, regular menu service 6-10 a.m. Reservations suggested. (501) 374-7474.
Capital Bar and Grill, meanwhile, is keeping normal hours and will be open all day Christmas, with complimentary valet.
Capriccio’s at the Peabody Hotel is apparently offering a brunch, but details have yet to be forthcoming.
The Riverfront Steakhouse at the Wyndham in North Little Rock is offering Chirstmas Brunch 11 a.m.-2 p.m. $24.99 adults/$12.99 kids. Reservations are suggested. (501) 371-9000.
