What's Cooking, May 8 

Capsule Review

A team of local restaurateurs, including Chris Tanner (Cheers in the Heights), Dave Bisceglia (Dave & Ray's) and New Orleans chef Matthew Ratcliff, will open Salut! at Prospect Place on Monday, May 12, in the first floor of the Prospect Building on Grant St., one block south of Cantrell. Under the direction of Ratcliff, the restaurant will offer “contemporary cuisine with a Southern accent.” Initially, Salut! will be open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., with dinner hours following a few weeks later. A Salut! cooking club will begin in June, and the Salut! wine club will begin in July. The restaurant's address is 1501 N. University; the phone number is 660-4200.

 

Also coming soon: A third Faded Rose location. Ed David will expand his mini-chain with a new restaurant in North Little Rock's Argenta district, on Sixth and Main, across from Argenta Seafood. Preliminary plans for the building, which will be built from the ground up, include a large dining room, a private room, a patio area and a larger kitchen than the other locations.

 

Longtime North Little Rock staple Rick and D's Fisher's Cafe has closed. Ditto for Scapetto's Deli in the River Market.

UPDATE:

CREGEEN'S IRISH PUB Corned beef and cabbage is pretty hard to find at restaurants in this part of the world, so when we heard it was on the regular menu at Cregeen's, we hurried on over. It wasn't quite what we'd hoped for, but any corned beef and cabbage is better than none. Though it has an “Irish Favorites” section on the menu, including the CB&C, we suspect that Cregeen's sells considerably more burgers, salads and sandwiches than it does Shepherd's Pie or Bangers and Mash. Nice-looking and at a nice location in downtown North Little Rock, self-proclaimed as “the home of the perfect pint,” Cregeen's would be a good place to hang out and watch American football, we imagine. 301 Main and Broadway, North Little Rock. 376-7468. Full bar. CC $-$$ LD daily.
