Mike's Place 

MIKE'S PLACE Shrimp etoufee perfectly spiced and generously shrimped, a table on a brick terrace with a fountain and a big fig plant with its very own tree frog jumping about — what could be a better dining experience on a Sunday evening in Conway? We started with an order of fried green tomatoes, a dozen thin slices in a spicy and lemony batter, excellent. Companions had the homemade gumbo, and exclaimed over the freshness of the ingredients ("Look at this okra!"). The menu at this three-dining-room New Orleans-inspired bistro is enormous and the service excellent. The staff didn't raise an eyebrow when we brought in our own birthday cake for our dessert, graciously putting it in a cooler and serving it when it was time. And of course, there was singing. The frog kept quiet. 808 Front St., 501-269-6453. LD daily. $$. Full bar (requires free membership).
