HAMMONTREE'S Can a restaurant that serves grilled cheese sandwiches be gourmet? Yes it can, if it's Hammontree's. We had the best caprese (mozzarella, pesto, tomato bruschetta and the "House Cheese blend" on delicious toasted sourdough) EVER at this pretty bar and restaurant near the Hog Haus. Also on the menu: Brie's Company (grilled apple, brie, gouda, caramelized onions and fig jam — imagine!), the Rajin' Cajun (andouille sausage, poblano peppers, three alarm Colby jack and the house blend), East of Edam (Edam, blue cheese, bacon, avocado, baby spinach) and eight others. We had half a caprese (huge) with a salad dressed in a tahini vinaigrette. Excellent. There are also salads and turkey burgers and soups (crawfish bisque the day we went, but it was too hot outside to contemplate) and make your own items on the menu. There's outdoor seating along the front. Why can't Little Rock have a place like this? 326 N. West Ave., 479-521-1669. LD Mon.-Sat. Full bar.

    Out here in flyover country, you can't hardly go by the feed store without running into a reporter doing one of those Wisdom of the Heartland stories.
  • Not Whitewater

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
