What's Cookin', Feb. 2 

Chipotle Mexican Grill, the popular fast casual chain, is finally coming to Little Rock. A corporate spokesman said the restaurant, located in the Pleasant Ridge Shopping Center at 11525 Cantrell Road, is scheduled to open sometime in early spring. Arkansas already has two Chipotle locations, one in Beebe and another in Jonesboro.

The Root, the long, long-in-the works local foods cafe, finally has a permanent home — 1500 South Main, the former home of the Sweden Creme dairy bar. Slated to open in late spring, the restaurant will offer the likes of vegetarian banh mi sandwiches, hamburgers, fresh-baked pastries and pies, locally roasted coffee and homemade sodas, as well as a number of seasonal items.

Leading up to its opening, The Root is setting up shop weekly at Christ Episcopal Church, from 10 a.m. to noon every Saturday, during pick-up hours for the Arkansas Sustainability Network's food club.

  • Football for UA Little Rock

    Andrew Rogerson, the new chancellor at UA Little Rock, has decided to study the cost of starting a major college football team on campus (plus a marching band). Technically, it would be a revival of football, dropped more than 60 years ago when the school was a junior college.
  • Turn to baseball

    When the world threatens to get you down, there is always baseball — an absorbing refuge, an alternate reality entirely unto itself.
