Tokyo House: Not your pappy's buffet

While the world is full of sub-standard all-you-can-scarf joints — many of which have shambled on, zombielike, long beyond their rightful expiration date — this year's Readers Choice winner for Best Buffet, West Little Rock's Tokyo House, has gone a long way toward restoring our faith in buffet dining. For one thing, it's food you might actually want to eat an infinite amount of: mostly Japanese cuisine, including gyoza dumplings, a sushi bar, fried rice and noodles, hibachi chicken and steak, as well as oddball stuff like squid and seaweed, and green tea ice cream for dessert. As an added bonus, it's all presented beautifully on platters, with nary a steam-tray in sight. That alone is enough to break the psychic connection between Tokyo House and the horror show of bad Asian buffets that came before.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count. I was struck by a single sentence over the weekend in a full page of coverage in The New York Times devoted to the killing spree in Arkansas, beginning with a front-page account of the recent flurry of legal filings on pending executions and continuing inside with an interview with Damien Echols, the former death row inmate.

    "God, I hate art," my late friend The Doctor used to say.
  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
  • Judge Griffen writes about morality, Christian values and executions

    Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen, who blogs at Justice is a verb!, sends along a new post this morning.
