What's cooking, Jan. 15 

On Dec. 31, Lex and Ellen Golden and their children Alex Golden and Amy McCay purchased the venerable Heights grocery store Terry's Finer Food from longtime owner Gene Lewellen. The Goldens control Allied Bank in Little Rock and Ellen Golden owns Antiques on Kavanaugh down the street from Terry's. The family previously owned and operated Chattie's Restaurant in the Heights.

Lex Golden says he and his family have been loyal customers of Terry's since they moved to the Heights some 40 years ago. He says he plans to change little about the store and continue its emphasis on personalized service. Charge accounts have long been a fixture. Golden says he's exploring returning another vestige of a bygone era, home delivery.

Here's something new, though: The Goldens plan to open a restaurant in the space adjacent to the grocery that used to be Sue's Pie Shop. They'll serve deli food and blue plate specials in the spirit of the old Chattie's menu. The Goldens have asked for a zoning variance to be able to add a second floor to the space. Golden says he hopes to open, at least the initial phase, by this summer.
