Dig that Deli.

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 2009 at 8:19 AM


Say what you will about the inevitable wait, but good things can be found at Boulevard Bread Company in the River Market's Oppenheimer Hall.  It never fails; the hankering for one of those big salads or plates will come over me and I'll find myself in line behind half a dozen or more people, some of which can't make up their minds on what to get.  Of course, that's no big fault of their own -- the menu is huge, and there's all sorts of combinations.

For me?  While I like the pastrami sandwich ($6.50), if I have time to sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch the Greek Sampler ($7.50) is the way to go -- with chunks of tomato and lots of olives, pepperoncini peppers and Feta cheese, dolmas, hummus, and that fresh bread... ah, throw in a passion fruit iced tea and find a corner to sit in, and there's a good lunch hour of people watching and munching for ya.

The coffee choices are also quite excellent.  I just wish the line was a lot shorter... because (with the exception of one rare morning a couple of years ago when I was in the building before 6am) I don't believe I've ever seen the place without a line.  (501) 374-1232.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
