What's cooking, Jan. 22 

Peter Brave of Brave New Restaurant is arranging to have a whole farm-grown bluefin tuna, raised in the Gulf of Baja, flown in for a special dinner on Sunday, Feb. 8. The fish will be caught Feb. 6. His plan is to serve it all at its freshest in “one fell swoop.” He's ordered one before and described it as “awesome.”

The fish will weigh from 20 to 60 pounds, depending on how many people sign up for the reservations-only dinner. It will be part of a four-course meal for $55. Diners will open with yellowfin tuna tartare, followed by cream of brie soup with apple and walnut garnish. The entree tuna will be lightly seared and served with a horseradish/ginger beurre blanc sauce. A dessert sampler will close the meal.

The restaurant will open at 5:30 p.m. and dinner will begin at 6 p.m.

Make reservations by calling 663-2677.


The week of Jan. 26-31 is Restaurant Week in the Argenta district of downtown North Little Rock. Cafe La Pace, Cornerstone Pub and Grill, Cregeen's Irish Pub, Margo's Catfish Diner and Deli, Reno's Argenta Cafe and Starving Artist Cafe will offer $8 two-course lunches. Benihana Japanese Steakhouse, Ristorante Capeo, Riverfront Steakhouse, Starving Artist Cafe and Valentine's Italian Restaurant will serve $25 three-course dinners.
