“ZAZA FINE SALAD AND PIZZA CO. has thin crust, wood-fired pizzas, savory salads, and creamy gelatos inspired by the southern Italian cuisine. The circular 700° oven can bake and pizza in 3 to 5 minutes. This is another order at the counter and have a seat. The salads are amazing and made to order right in front of you. ”

“Named among Esquire's "24 Best Bars in America" as a dive bar. Tucked in the neighborhood and the old bar in in Little Rock. A truly unpretentious bar with events and entertainment that appeals to a diverse group of ages and music lovers and poetry and standup comedy,.... ”

“This is a cute and hip local lunch option that I highly recommend while you are in town. Their tacos are the BOMB and the ascetic of this place will knock your socks off. 8-10mins from The Tiny Cottage”

“CIAO BACI Specialties include crispy calamari and house sangria, which are best enjoyed out on the beautiful and spacious patio. Ciao Baci is very proud of its wine collection, boasting the largest half bottle selection in town. Their impeccable service makes every visit feel like a homecoming. The bar is great, especially if your eating alone. Neal, the bar tender is a great guy and good friend. ”

“This brewery has a log cabin feel to it. I guess it's for the "bear" in Diamond Bear Brewing. The seating area is large and on nice days, they open the entire wall to the outdoor seating area for a nice breeze while beer tasting. They have a take on a Bloody Mary they make with one of their hefeweizen brews that is super tasty. ”

“Though I do not personally go here often, this is a beer lover's emporium, offering a dizzying list of beers, many of which are on tap. The atmosphere is cozy, attractive, and fun, especially when the front garage-bay windows are open in nice weather. After you officially taste all 200 beers, you can get your own "flying saucer" with your name on it on the ceiling. ”
