Italian Couple has new digs

The Italian Couple will be opening in its new location, at 1900 W. Markham St., on Saturday, Aug. 19. Michael and Yuli Waters opened the popular eatery on 12th Street in the 1990s, coming to Little Rock from Italy after learning that President Bill Clinton was from Arkansas. After closing for a while, they reopened the Italian Couple in the same location on 12th Street earlier this year, but Michael said they have been look-ing for a different location since returning. The new spot is next door to Warehouse Liquor and is on the west side of the viaduct on Markham Street in the vicinity of the state Capitol. He said they have invested substantially in putting in new kitchen fixtures and reworking the interior of the building, which in recent years briefly housed a club. Parking will also be increased around the building. The restaurant will be open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner.

The address for Koto Bistro-Teppanyaki-Sushi is 17200 Chenal Parkway, Suite 100, in Little Rock. The telephone number is 821-7200. The information was listed incorrectly in the review for the restaurant in the Aug. 10 edition.

    The band’s shows cover most of the songs that have either been Youtube viewing sensations or are already album classics with that PMJ touch, such as Taylor Swift’s “Shake, Shake, Shake” and Radiohead’s “Creep.” Consider us blown away though by the show’s main set concluding number of The Postal Service/Ben Gibbard-penned “Such Great Heights” done as if by the Jackson 5 in an “I Want You Back” styling.
