What's Cookin': Satellite to remodel, Blanc Burger and Bar Louie coming, more

Blanc Burger


Satellite Cafe
has scaled back its business hours in anticipation of a remodel, tentatively scheduled for the coming weeks, that would leave the Heights restaurant closed until May. Until then, the cafe is serving breakfast only, from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Blanc Burger and Bottles
, a growing chain with locations in Kansas and Missouri, has filed a plumbing permit to locate an outlet at 17809 Chenal Parkway, in the Promenade at Chenal. By the looks of the menu (available at www.blancburgers.com), the restaurant puts a gourmet spin on the standard burger joint. Fries include hand-cut, truffle or sweet potato. Salads come with brioche croutons. There are Kobe beef and bison burgers. And a beer float, topped with custard. We'll let you know when we hear about an opening date.

Laurie Lowe, the franchise owner of Five Guys Burgers and Fries in North Little Rock, hopes to open a Little Rock franchise by June in a strip mall being built at 13000 Chenal. The Little Rock eatery will be 2,500 square feet and feature a patio. Lowe, who owns the rights to build eight franchises in Arkansas, says she’s currently eyeing locations in Jonesboro, Fort Smith, Rogers and Conway.

Terry’s Finer Foods, in the Heights, is shooting for early March to open an adjacent restaurant. In the meantime, the chef is cooking breakfast, from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., and offering sandwiches the rest of the day, Monday through Saturday, behind the deli-counter.

We couldn’t get anyone to go on record about an opening date, but Bar Louie, a national tavern and grill chain, has filed a plumbing per-mit for the space in the Pleasant Ridge Town Center that formerly housed Crew (not Imagine as we originally reported in the paper; that, of course, is where Capi's is currently). We’ll let you know when the official word comes. Until then, more about Bar Louie can found at www.restaurants-america.com/barlouie/.
