The Arkansas Arts Center's latest opening is its new restaurant, Watercolor in the Park. The Keet family of restaurateurs (Taziki's Mediterranean Cafe, Petit & Keet) is now running the show.

Watercolor's Facebook page exhibits images of its offerings, including its Hot Pimento Cheese Skillet, prosciutto deviled eggs and Wagyu corned beef sandwich. Also on the menu: hummus to share, vegan tomato basil soup, salads, turkey sandwiches, fried chicken, burgers, and fancier fare, like charred salmon and gulf shrimp. For dessert: baklava from Hellas Bakery in Florida (which you may have had at Taziki's) and chocolate spoon cake.

Fittingly, the restaurant is decked out in paintings by members of the Mid-Southern Watercolorists.

UPDATE: The restaurant will offer a Holiday Buffet on Friday, Nov. 30, before the opening night performance of "Jack Frost in Santa Land" in the Children's Theatre. Seatings are at 5 p.m., 5:15 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 5:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. The menu includes glazed ham, oven roasted turkey, candied yams, roasted potatoes and pecan pie cheesecake bites.

Regular hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Sunday brunch by restaurant/bar Petit & Keet (as in restaurateur Louis Petit and Jim Keet) starts Dec. 9.
