Follow your compass north to experience what Kyle Dismang calls “true culinary genius” at the North Bar, which opened four weeks ago in the space formerly occupied by Ira’s Park Hill Grill in the Lake Hill Shopping Center.

Dismang is the front-of-house man. The genius comes from chef Eric Greer. Greer, his father, Jim Greer, and Dismang own the North Bar. Dismang said the establishment is “North Little Rock’s only gourmet bar,” with a varied menu that includes all kinds of burgers, vegan offerings and gluten-free ingredients, inspired by family with special dietary needs. The meals are hearty here: The Trifecta, one of Dismang’s contributions, includes a Black Angus beef patty, grilled chicken and bacon topped with aioli and provolone, tucked in a brioche bun provided by Arkansas Fresh Bakery.

The food is “big and messy,” Dismang said. “That’s our other slogan, ‘It’s not good unless it’s messy.’ ” The Greers also own the Garden Bistro, but at the North Bar, Eric is free to offer more offbeat dishes, like his peanut butter, jelly and bacon burger. “Everybody loves it,” Dismang said. Greer’s veggie patties are so good, Dismang said, “I’m almost off beef.”

Besides the full bar, North Bar also sells local beers from Lost Forty, Diamond Bear and Flyway. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday; alcohol is served all day, lunch is served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner is 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
