What's Cooking/capsule reviews Dec. 29 

What's cooking:

As the sign says on the door, “back by popular demand,” Rick and D’s Fisher’s Cafe on East Broadway in North Little Rock has added Saturday breakfast hours, from 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Since taking over the venerable restaurant, Rick and Delana Green has been open Monday through Friday only.

Some of the new restaurants we’re expecting in 2006 include the first Montana Steakhouse in the area, opening on the bustling East McCain Boulevard in North Little Rock; Kan Pai, a sushi restaurant coming to the East McCain area; and a Mimi’s Cafe, opening in front of Garden Ridge and by On the Border on Chenal Parkway in West Little Rock.

The locally owned San Francisco Bread Co.’s newest franchise is up and running at the southeast corner of West Markham Street and Bowman Road.

The former Ozark Mountain Smoke House on Keightley is now called the Ozark Country Restaurant. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch.

Update:

FLIGHT DECK The restaurant and catering service at Central Flying Service, on the west side of the Little Rock airport, is a great place to see how the other half lives. It’s a rare weekday that some local magnate isn’t coming or going on a private plane for the entertainment of diners. It is also a great place to get a cheeseburger. “The Greatest Cheeseburger in Aviation History,” as the menu describes it? We aren’t qualified to judge. But we can say it’s a whopper, much more meat than the quarter-pound listed on the menu, the patty hand-formed and served on a grilled bun with melted pepper jack cheese and everything else. We’re an “everything” eater, meaning lettuce, onion, pickle, tomato, mustard and mayonnaise. It’s a great burger, satisfying and short in only one small category – grease. The burger meat is lean, which perhaps reflects a sensibility catering to the beautiful people who fly private jets. The menu also includes a variety of attractive salads, topped with everything from taco meat, to grilled tuna to fried chicken. There’s even a fresh fruit plate, an offering you don’t expect in a restaurant that has a daily blue plate special with the likes of turnip greens, great northern beans, mashed potatoes and meat loaf. Biscuits and gravy star on the breakfast menu, if you’re not expecting turbulence later. 1501 Bond Street. 975-9315 BL Mon.-Fri., L Sat. $ CC

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
