Magness Lake, in Heber Springs, is a magnet for swans
Petit Bistro Owner Dario Amini and chef Dane Mane serve haute cuisine in a little cobblestone house transformed into chic eatery outside Bentonville. The chateaubriand steak salad was divine; our companion, who eats here every chance she can get, was enjoying her shrimp and polenta. When the weather's nice, the back patio looks out on woods and a brook and is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine. Desserts look scrumptious, especially the pumpkin brulee. 2702 N.
