The Villa Italian Restaurant 

One of the oldest restaurants in town and still serving up the old-fashioned Italian comfort food – spaghetti, lasagna, veal parmigiano, etc. – that old-timers remember. Ken's Pasta, one of our favorites from way back is still on the menu too, and still good. ("A dieter's delight! Fresh mushrooms, onions, celery, bell pepper, garlic and diced tomatoes in a tomato sauce, served over cavatapi.") The minestrone here is thick and hearty, perfect for a cool day. There's pizza too, some of the selections out of the ordinary. Monday through Thursday, every night is a "special" night of one kind or another. Tuesday night, when kids eat free, is especially popular with families. The servings are generous. 12111 W. Markham St. (Rock Creek Square). Full bar. CC. $$-$$$ 501-219-2244. LD Mon.-Sat.

    There goes the Robert E. Lee. But the sentiment that built the monument? It's far from gone.
  • Real reform

    Arkansas voters, once perversely skeptical of complicated ballot issues like constitutional amendments, have become almost comical Pollyannas, ratifying the most shocking laws.
  • That modern mercantile: The bARn

    The bARn Mercantile — "the general store for the not so general," its slogan says — will open in the space formerly occupied by Ten Thousand Villages at 301A President Clinton Ave.
