What's Cookin', 

After sitting empty for years, The Starlite Diner at 250 E. Military Drive in North Little Rock reopened last week. Owner-manager Tim Rogers said he's simplified the menu a little, but maintained its flexibility — breakfast and dinner are served all day long. Rogers said he's tried to leave unchanged hallmarks like the giant pancakes, milkshakes and sundaes, and has improved the burgers, once built on frozen patties, by making them fresh daily. The diner is open from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily. Rogers said he'll will eventually expand to 24 hours daily after he repairs a walk-in cooler, gets a Coke dispenser in place (he said he's been promised one by Wednesday) and fine-tunes the operation elsewhere. The phone number is 353-0465.

Voting in our annual Readers Choice Restaurant Poll is now open online at arktimes.com/readerschoice2011. New this year: We've provided a link to our restaurant list for browsing to help along the decision-making, and we've also added a field below each category where you can explain your selections. Show us what you got, aspiring food writers; we're looking for new talent.

New categories this year: Best Vegetarian/Vegan and Best Food Truck. The poll stays open until Dec. 15. The results will appear in mid-Feb. next year.

    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.
