HAMMONTREE'S Can a restaurant that serves grilled cheese sandwiches be gourmet? Yes it can, if it's Hammontree's. We had the best caprese (mozzarella, pesto, tomato bruschetta and the "House Cheese blend" on delicious toasted sourdough) EVER at this pretty bar and restaurant near the Hog Haus. Also on the menu: Brie's Company (grilled apple, brie, gouda, caramelized onions and fig jam — imagine!), the Rajin' Cajun (andouille sausage, poblano peppers, three alarm Colby jack and the house blend), East of Edam (Edam, blue cheese, bacon, avocado, baby spinach) and eight others. We had half a caprese (huge) with a salad dressed in a tahini vinaigrette. Excellent. There are also salads and turkey burgers and soups (crawfish bisque the day we went, but it was too hot outside to contemplate) and make your own items on the menu. There's outdoor seating along the front. Why can't Little Rock have a place like this? 326 N. West Ave., 479-521-1669. LD Mon.-Sat. Full bar.

    Some notes on disparate topics before I take a vacation break.
  • Trumpeting

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
  • Putin and Trump

    Here's a thought exercise: What do you suppose would happen if Russian strongman Vladimir Putin decided to clarify remarks he reportedly made about Donald Trump during the election campaign?
