What's cooking, Feb. 1 

Jerry Barakat has been moving things around at his restaurant enclave on Rahling Road, just off Chenal Parkway in West Little Rock. First, his Jasmine-Sesame’s-Jerry B’s Piano Bar business has been shifted westward, out of the space Jasmine’s originally occupied and fully into the area originally housing Sesame’s. That has opened up space for Barakat’s latest endeavor, a fine-dining steak restaurant to be called Arthur’s Prime Steak House. An employee at Jasmine’s-Sesame’s says the target for opening Arthur’s is mid-March. “Basically, we switched entrances for Jasmine’s-Sesame’s,” he said.

Nothing has changed with the menu at the regular spots, and martinis are still offered from Jerry B’s, the piano bar on the western end of the first floor space of the complex. In back, where Gaucho’s Grill was before moving to the former Tony Roma’s on Shackleford, is Blue Agave, a Mexican-Caribbean seafood and meat establishment. Barakat also owns the Terrace on the Green, at Pleasant Valley and Rodney Parham.
