The Roux Cafe will open sometime in July 

A New Orleans-style bistro specializing in Cajun cuisine is coming to downtown Little Rock. The Roux Cafe will open sometime in July at 801 Markham St., according to owner Lee Miller. Fried catfish, fried crawfish, fried shrimp, jambalaya, gumbo, crawfish pies and boiled crawfish will all be on the menu. The restaurant will offer a full bar, Miller said, and specialize in a Bourbon Street standby — daiquiris.

A Little Rock native who said he developed a taste for Cajun food while in college at Dillard University in New Orleans, Miller doesn't have restaurant experience — after working in Congressman Vic Snyder's office, he worked in the secretary of state's business and commercial service office, which inspired him to open his own business, he said — but he said local restaurateurs Fred Cashaw and Matt Lile have been serving as his mentors. Miller also said he'd hired two chefs, one of whom is from New Orleans.

The Roux will be open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner with a full bar. In the second floor of the building, Miller plans to occasionally host concerts, including touring brass bands.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
