Pantry Crest to open Oct. 9

The Pantry Crest, the much anticipated Hillcrest spinoff of West Little Rock's The Pantry, will hold a soft opening beginning 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9. 

There'll be a smaller menu initially, owner Tomas Bohm said. The bar offerings will be bigger, though, with 10 to 12 taps for beer, two taps for wine and a wide selection of 750 ml beers, which The Pantry Crest will regularly offer by the glass.

"I'm not a big 'grand opening' kind of guy," owner Tomas Bohm said. The menu will expand as the staff gets into a groove, he said.

Bohm has been renovating the new space — a century old former home at at 722 Palm St. that used to house The House — since January. The new floor plan is more open, Bohm said, with seating for around 100 people. He also added a bar on the outdoor deck.

When Bohm announced the new restaurant in January, he said he hoped to be open in April. Why the delay? 

"We've had a lot of setbacks," he said. "I'm the kind of guy that does some trial and error stuff. When you come to someone's home you can tell when it was totally staged. Or you go to a home and you call tell that some has made it their home. It's the same thing with me. My whole thing was finding balance between: You're in Hillcrest, the place is in a 100-year-old home and you still want to make it look like a restaurant without looking cookie cutter."

The kitchen will be open from 4 p.m. until midnight Thursday through Sunday with bar service continuing until close. The phone number is 352-3549.
