What's cooking, Aug. 21 

Sims BBQ has applied to the Capital Zoning District Commission for a conditional use permit for 2415 S. Broadway. That's the old Movie Gallery space in the strip mall on the corner of Broadway and Roosevelt, less than a mile from the original Sims on 33rd Street. Does that mean the original, open on 33rd since 1937, might be closing? When reached by phone, owner Ronald Settlers had no comment.

 

Longtime restaurateur and former state Rep. Jim Keet, in partnership with his sons Tommy and Jake, hopes to open Taziki's Greek Fare mid-September in the Cantrell Heights Shopping Center. The Keets are the first franchisee of the 10-year-old Mediterranean chain, based in Birmingham. It's yet another fast casual chain, though Keet boasts that the freshness of ingredients and “high quality, reasonably priced” wine list will set Taziki's apart. You can see a menu at tazikis.net that'll largely resemble the Little Rock branch's.
