Taj Mahal Mediterranean and Indian Cuisine plans to open on Aug. 10 or soon thereafter at 1520 Market Street in Little Rock. Former New York restaurateur Jay Riaz is the owner. The focus, despite the restaurant's name, will be Indian, with only a few Mediterranean dishes on the menu.
The restaurant plans to be open daily for lunch and dinner and for brunch on the weekend. The current phone number is 631-455-0755 and the website is tajmahalar.com.
Eat Arkansas's Kat Robinson reports that a sign on Starlite Diner in North Little promises a coming grand reopening and that the restaurant will begin taking applications in October. This is merely the latest in a number of hints that the old-school diner is poised to reopen. We'll believe it when we see it.
