What's Cooking, Nov. 8 

Boulevard's Scott McGehee is 99.9% sure he'll be setting up a new restaurant concept down the street from his flagship bakery and cafe. After originally targeting the Pleasant Ridge Town Center in West Little Rock, McGehee and longtime pal John Beachboard (currently the chef de cuisine at Valentine's Ballpark Restaurant) are poised now to bring their wood-oven pizza joint to the former home of Luchessi's in the Heights Theater. According to McGehee, Za-Za Fine Salad and Wood-Oven Pizza will specialize in Napoli-style pizza and inventive salads. It'll also feature premium wine by the glass, draft beer, Italian-style espresso, cafe latte and homemade gelato. The restaurateur hopes to open by March 1, April 1 at the latest.

The plastic sheeting on the front of Cotham's in the City won't affect your chicken and dumplings and fried okra. The restaurant isn't closed, it's just having its exterior painted.
