  • The staff of life, now in the River Market thanks to Old Mill Bread.

Word comes from River Market Director of Operations Diana Long that Old Mill Bread and a new Indian restaurant are open now in Ottenheimer Hall — just in time for the Taekwondo event at the Statehouse Convention Center. They'd been expected to open after July 4.

The Old Mill Bread stall is an outlet of the venerable West Little Rock bakery and cafe. For folks who like good bread and miss Boulevard Bread's presence in the River Market, this is a good day. The Old Mill space is next to Mason's Deli & Grill.

Also open: Indian Feast, in the space formerly occupied by The Veg. Yogi Asudani is the proprietor, and recent samples of his chicken curry and chicken Korma were praised by office gourmand Max Brantley. 

Asudani, a native of Delhi, told Max that an upscale sit-down Indian restaurant is also planned for a location on Chenal Parkway in perhaps four months.
