Hunka Pie owner Chris Monroe has purchased the Starlite Diner in North Little Rock and closed Hunka Pie's dairy bar location on Cantrell. Monroe said he doesn't plan on taking the Starlite sign down anytime soon. He said he's hoping to incorporate both the Hunka Pie and Starlite brands into the business.

The new Starlite Diner will reopen Nov. 10 and serve pie from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily. The full menu, which will be similar to Hunka Pie's offerings on Cantrell Road plus plate lunch specials, salads and breakfast items, will debut Nov. 28. Starting then, the diner will be open 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday for breakfast only.

Monroe said he's accepting pie orders for Thanksgiving via phone (612-4754), e-mail (chris@hunkapie.com) or Facebook.

Sushi Cafe's Robert Tju hopes to open a new restaurant in The Heights by Valentine's Day 2012. The new yet-to-be-named venue will be located at 5501 Kavanaugh, in the space once occupied by Colianni Piano, and will seat around 120 in the restaurant and around 100 in an adjacent lounge. The restaurant may be a steakhouse, Tju said, but that's yet to be decided.

  • 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.
