What's cooking, April 24 

Mike Selig's Vermillion has opened the rooftop of the Capital Commerce Center for private events. Opening the roof to the general public in afternoons and evenings may follow. Selig has also introduced his first bar menu, which includes items from the raw bar, sandwiches and appetizers.At 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 28, Vermillion will host a J. Lohr wine dinner on the rooftop for $65. Check the Times' Eat Arkansas blog for the complete menu.

 Cupcakes on Kavanaugh has opened at 5625 Kavanaugh Blvd. across from Mary Healey's in the Heights. Every day the store offers four “classics,” all of which involve some combination of vanilla and/or Ghirardelli chocolate, and three to five specialty varieties. Because of a high demand and start-up kinks, the cupcakery has been open only from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, though in the two weeks the store has been open, the cupcakes have frequently sold out before 5. Look for an 11 a.m. opening time in the coming weeks. The phone number, appropriately enough, is 664-CAKE (2253). 

Velo Rouge Brasserie has stopped serving lunch. “Business has been slow,” a waiter confided to one of our staffers.

Capsule review

DOUBLETREE PLAZA BAR & GRILL We tried the lunch buffet at this restaurant in the DoubleTree Hotel. Some people don't care for lunch buffets —  or any other kind of buffet, for that matter — but we've met some we liked. The Plaza Grill's is not among them, unfortunately. The entree and vegetable selections were uninspired and limited. We wound up with peas and carrots as one of our vegetable selections. That's desperate. The pork chops were bland. The salad and fruit section was better, and dessert might have been, but we reflexively passed on dessert, as we usually do. That was a mistake. A good dessert could have made the $9.50 price ($10.40 counting tax) seem reasonable. We'll have to make another trip to see what dinner at the Plaza is like. Markham and Broadway, 372-4371. BLD 7 days CC Full bar $$

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
