When last I checked in on Justin Patterson and the Southern Gourmasian food truck, he hinted that he was looking to move his unique, down-home Asian/Southern fusion concept into a brick-and-mortar location, but hadn't yet found the right place. Fast-forward a few months, and Justin contacted me yesterday with some exciting news: brick-and-mortar is a "go!"

The new Southern Gourmasian restaurant will be located at 219 W. Capitol, right in the heart of downtown. Patterson plans to keep his current menu of steamed buns, Asian chicken and dumplings, and sandwiches, but says that the new, larger space will allow him and his team to do seasonal specials and ramen, something he's wanted to have on the menu for awhile but just couldn't get to work in the back of a truck. In addition, Patterson hints that he's got "about 50 or so dishes that we have tossed ideas around on but haven't been able or had time to execute on the truck."

Fans of the truck don't need to worry: Patterson and crew will still be driving out to events. Indeed, Patterson sees his new kitchen as an opportunity to expand what the truck can offer, since prep space will not be such an issue. The new stationary restaurant will also allow Gourmasian to offer beer, wine, and a selection of tasty sakes to pair with their eclectic menu.

The new brick and mortar location will be opening this fall, and until then, you can follow Southern Gourmasian on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with where they're parked on any given day. Best of luck to the Gourmasian team — they've been a personal favorite of mine for a couple of years now, and it's great to see them growing and expanding.

  • Mylo Coffee Co. is coming...soon

    The time has nearly arrived. You can almost smell the coffee beans roasting now, the scent of freshly baked bread wafting down Kavanaugh. You’ve probably lamented the absence of Mylo Coffee Co. from the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market over the last few months. But of course, you probably already know they’ve been hard at work preparing their storefront for a highly anticipated opening date. And at this point, you’re probably asking, “when is this opening date?” I’ll just say this...soon.

  • UPDATE: Dozens marry as same-sex marriages begin in Little Rock; now the legal tangle

    Same sex marriages, dozens of them, began at the Pulaski County Courthouse in Little Rock today and also at the Washington County courthouse in Fayetteville, but most other Arkansas counties ignored the ruling, including four named defendants that adopted a county offcials' strategy developed Saturday to resist until the Supreme Court was heard from. Attorney General Dustin McDaniel filed for stays before both Judge Chris Piazza and the Arkansas Supreme Court. A Supreme Court stay before a final order from Piazza would be unusual, but the Arkansas Supreme Court is sensitive to political winds and might depart from practice here. No indication yet when it might respond to the McDaniel filing, which plaintiffs will contest.
