Hillcrest Artisan Meat coming to Hillcrest 

Carnivores who live in Hillcrest or anywhere even relatively close, this is the best news you'll hear all week: Former Boulevard chef Brandon Brown plans to open Hillcrest Artisan Meat — HAM for short — by Nov. 1 (or if everything goes well in time for Hillcrest Harvest Fest on Oct. 15) at 2807 Kavanaugh next to Kroger and the U.S. Post Office.

Brown moved to Little Rock with his family about a year ago from Eugene, Ore., where he was charcuterie chef at King Estate Winery for four years.

Brown said HAM will be a full-service butcher shop and charcuterie, where he'll butcher, cure and make everything on-site: bacon, ham, sausage, turkey breasts, pork chops, pastrami, brisket, various confits, salami, pate and other charcuterie. Everything will be sourced locally, except, initially, prosciutto, which Brown said takes a year to cure.

Your Mama's Good Food is moving, which means for the month of September during the transition downtown diners are going to have to do without fried chicken, brown gravy and those massive rolls. The restaurant is headed to the Pyramid Building at 221 W. Second St., where owners Barbara and Fleming Stockton say they'll have twice the space of their location at 220 W. 4th St.

Fleming Stockton, who talked about retiring in a recent Q&A with the Times, said he and his wife will continue on in the new location, but that the September break will afford them "a much-needed vacation."

Stockton said he hopes to open Sept. 1.

  • ASU to reap $3.69 million from estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn

    Arkansas State University announced today plans for spending an expected $3.69 million gift in the final distribution of the estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn, who died in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
