Utopia Restaurant and Lounge, a new American-style eatery, opened today at 521 Center Street. You can check out their Facebook page here.

The restaurant features a full bar, with a lounge area upstairs that will host musical acts and other events. Happy hour is from 3:30 to 7 p.m. weekdays.

The person who answered the phone listed for Utopia at (907-6688) didn't want to be quoted for publication, but said the restaurant had a soft open on Valentine's Day with the lounge open over the weekend, but both the restaurant and lounge are officially open as of today.

The menu will feature American faves, including salads, burgers, wings, baked tilapia, salmon, fried chicken, fish, and sandwiches, with more substantial entrees at dinner. Breakfast, which is planned to begin next Monday morning with hours still to be determined, will feature faves like egg dishes, chicken and waffles and omelets. In addition, Utopia is planning "Soul Food Sundays" from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Sundays.

The person we talked to said the Utopia website should be up on Friday at www.utopialittlerock.com

Hours, restricted by the location’s zoning, will be 10:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. /more/
