What's Cooking, Nov. 15 

Cregeen's general manager Khalil Moussa said the Irish restaurant and pub will start developing new locations in Little Rock and Jacksonville in the next three to four months. Moussa called the property agreements “pretty much a done deal,” but because contracts hadn't been signed, he wouldn't reveal more than restaurants will be in West Little Rock and in the vicinity of the Air Force Base. The target dates are St. Patrick's Day 2008 for the West Little Rock location and “a month or two after” for the Jacksonville one, Moussa said. According to the general manager, the Creegen's ownership group hopes to continue expansion throughout Arkansas.

Hardin's River Mercantile, which we reported last week had posted closed signs and cleared its merchandise, will officially close in the River Market on Saturday, Nov. 17. The final day for the mercantile will coincide with the final November pickup day for Hardin's basket-a-month program. In a note to BAM subscribers, proprietor Jody Hardin explained that the store was rarely turning a profit and steadily losing up to $5,000 a month during the winter. The basket program will continue, possibly adding pick-up spots in Hillcrest, Argenta and West Little Rock. Hardin also notes that, as the Times has previously reported, he is still working to develop an “all local” farmer's market in Argenta.

Farmer's Daughter Cafe has closed in the Cox Building.
