Red Door breakfast not to be missed 

RED DOOR One major early breakthrough at Loca Luna, the across-the-parking-lot big brother to Red Door, was when chef/owner Mark Abernathy added gourmet plate lunches to his menu. His decision to crank up otherwise simple food a couple of serious notches helped build momentum at Loca Luna that has never subsided. Red Door, which opened about 18 months ago, has seen strong business that should only improve with the addition of one of the very best breakfasts in town. It also takes the simple concepts of eggs, bacon, sausage, omelets, granola, pancakes, biscuits and even breakfast sandwiches and puts an intense focus on improved quality and freshness. All of these items at Red Door are way better than you'll find at chain spots. Our favorite is the gargantuan Red Door Breakfast Skillet, an amazing amount of food for $6.89 – a cast iron skillet lined with hash browns and topped with two eggs any style you want them. Then there are options. We chose the Old South, which features crumbled bacon and sausage, lively cream gravy and a flaky biscuit, along with melted mozzarella just to "goo up" the whole thing a bit. What a melange! Don't miss the homemade granola – sweet, crunchy, filling and delicious, served with cream (or maybe that was half-and-half) for $3.29. The homemade biscuits and gravy are enough for a meal. Add crumbled sausage and the plate is still only $3.89. Four-egg (FOUR!) omelets with your choice of four of 17 fillings – served with potatoes or cheese grits and choice of toast, English muffin or biscuit – are only $7.95. Our friends raved, but they couldn't finish theirs. Plus there are pancakes, waffles, French toast, croissants and more. Definitely a huge cut above 95 percent of breakfasts around town. And on Saturday there's a supplemental menu that offers selected lunch options. 3701 Cantrell Road. CC. 501-666-8482. Breakfast served 7-10 a.m. Tue.-Fri. and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Sat.
