What's Cookin', Jan. 26 

Sam and Omar Kassees, owners of Mason's Deli, plan to open Rivershore Eatery in the River Market's Ottenheimer Hall sometime in the next two weeks in the space that previously housed Brown Sugar Bakeshop.

Sam Kassees, who'll manage Rivershore while his brother continues to run Mason's, said that the new space will feature hot entrees, soups, salads and deserts. The entrees and soups will change throughout the week and will be built around local and seasonal ingredients. Kassees said he'll also stock Yarnell's Ice Cream and RoZark Hills Coffee.


Salut Bistro, the Heights restaurant and bar best known as a late-night hangout, has a relatively new chef and a new Italian menu.

New chef Michael Jones, whose CV includes stints at Macaroni Grill and the Chenal Country Club, is now serving up the likes of Italian nachos ("crispy pasta chips topped with black olives, Roma tomatoes, banana peppers and an asiago cream sauce"), a baked spicy sausage cheese tortelloni and several varieties of pizza, including a margherita and a five cheese.


Cotija's, the popular downtown Mexican restaurant, introduced a happy hour last week that, at least initially, will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. The full menu will be available along with $2 domestic beers and margaritas.

Owner Leo Alvarez said that if the initial happy hour goes well, he'll likely expand evening hours and open on weekends.

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

    Arkansas voters, once perversely skeptical of complicated ballot issues like constitutional amendments, have become almost comical Pollyannas, ratifying the most shocking laws.

    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.
