Re: “In Hot Springs, pizza means Deluca's

I've been wanting to try this pizza pie, but I've been hesitant ever since I saw the prices for his pies. I guess I have a case of sticker shock. It's good to read what you thought of it now. I don't know anyone else who has ventured over there yet.

Re: “Pizza or calzone — the Layla's conundrum

I haven't been a fan of their calzones but the Greek pizza & Gyro's are always great. I wished they served beer & wine since the place really lacks a real atmosphere.

Re: “Friday feedback open line

We dined at The Pantry on Friday evening and it was great as usual. In my opinion The Pantry is the best restaurant in Little Rock. The food is always spot on with wonderful flavors and the service is excellent. The owner Tomas always visits with the patrons and you feel at home there. I had one of my favorites the Jäger Schnitzel with mushrooms & Spaetzel. Incredible dish of thinly fried pork covered in a deep brown gravy that is silky smooth. No visit to The Pantry is completed without a starter of the Truffled Deviled Eggs. Hands down best on the planet. And to finish it all with the best cheesecake in town. We also had our favorite pizza in LR, the meatball & pepperoni from NYPD in West LR. Love the NY pie there

Re: “One Eleven at the Capital (formerly Ashley's) opens today

What planet is the marketing director on? With lunch entrees averaging $15-$25 he feels that will draw people to dine there more frequently, uh yeah. I would imagine he is appealing to the one percenters out there. Most people in LR don't shell out that kind of money on lunch on a regular basis. From looking at the menu, the prices are elevated and I see nothing real original or inventive. It's looks like a typical big city boutique hotel restaurant with a massive & costly interior makeover. After saying all this I will try it out at some point and experience it all. It's definitely a special occasion place at their price point.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: Cool Summer's Day edition

I did a return trip to Jones' BBQ in Marianna and to Delta Q BBQ in Forrest City. Jones' is the quintessential pulled/chopped pork shoulder bbq in AR. The best I've ever eaten. It's a must trip for anyone who loves the BBQ experience. Delta Q is nice surprise in the BBQ landscape in AR. The "poutine" like fries were amazing. It's worth a trip for just the fries with gravy, cheese curd and pulled pork. My partner on the trip had the pulled pork plate and it was moist, flavorful and the sauce was touch sweet but not overboard with sweetness. I switched gears and had the fried catfish. I'm glad I tried the catfish. The breading was seasoned nicely and the fish was fried to perfection. The plate comes with two sides and a fried biscuit. First time I had a fried biscuit and it was like eating a somewhat savory doughnut like creation. I had the mustard based cole slaw and potato salad and both were house made and delicious. I'm off to Vegas this week for a massive week of dining and play. Cheers!

Re: “Food Feedback Friday:

I had a really nice take on the traditional Caesar salad at Forty Two. The 42 version featured polenta croutons which were a magnificent addition and really a treat. They also had grilled scallions prepared will basil oil in the salad. I could actually taste anchovy in the dressing which is always a plus and the chicken was a panko fried tenderloin which was delicious. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice salad. A group of us went to Zaffino's in Sherwood and again this restaurant delivered us comforting Italian-American fare in a casual setting. Nori and Michael have a gold mine in their place. Lots of personality and the food is always on point. I had the best Veal Parmesan I've had in Arkansas. The tiramisu is a must order at Zaffino's and it should be. They take great care and time to prepare this dessert right and it's delicious. Another dessert I sampled was the Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding. Let's just say it was a grand slam dessert as well. I wanted to devoured the whole dessert. If you haven't tried Zaffino's please check them out, it will be worth it.
