Kent's closes 

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration recently closed Kent's Downtown, the barbecue and home cookin' booth in the River Market's Ottenheimer Hall, for non-payment of sales tax. Reached at his Gravel Ridge restaurant and butcher shop, The Meat Shoppe, owner Kent Berry said he "just fell behind" with tax payments on Kent's. While he said he planned to "make things right with the state," he said he had no "immediate plans" to try to reopen Kent's. Berry said his tax problems would not affect The Meat Shoppe.

Ashley's Lee Richardson has, for the third year in a row, been nominated for a James Beard Award, the restaurant world's top honor. Richardson is a semi-finalist in the Best Chef: South category. He's the nominated only Arkansas chef.

The latest update on Browning's Mexican Grill opening date, according to owner Stephen Davis: mid-April.

    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.
