Little Rock Grabs Spot as "Foodie" City
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Some local restaurants are in the spotlight as the city is named to a prestigious list.
Little Rock has been named one of "Five Secret Foodie Cities" by the Forbes travel guide blog.
Here's how Forbes describes Little Rock:
"Once a land dominated by chain restaurants and barbecue joints, the capital of The Natural State has thoroughly expanded its palate. For high-end fare, the Joël Antunes-helmed Ashley’s at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Capital Hotel sets the standard with its collection of Southern cuisine done with an international flair. For small plates inspired by European traditions (see: ham and brie crostini), venture to the Hillcrest District for Ciao Baci, or if you’re looking for a more relaxed meal of organic, local ingredients, don’t miss Zaza’s Fine Salad + Wood-Oven Pizza Co. — the prosciutto-arugula pizza pairs well with just about every fresh salad on the menu. But if you’re still hoping for that traditional smoked barbecue during your Little Rock visit, don’t worry — the award-winning Whole Hog Café’s four-bone rib plate will certainly hit the spot."
