No news? Big news for eaters. The Local Lime restaurant guys have bought Browning’s in the Heights and plan a restaurant that leans more Tex-Mex than Local Lime, with tacos, nachos, burritos and a setting conducive to big crowds cheering Razorback games (presuming that day ever comes again). Eat Arkansas has the scoop. (Link corrected.)

A reverent moment: I made a friend in college from Little Rock. Stopping to see her on my drives to and from Louisiana eventually led me to a career here. My first visit, she said, “I’m going to take you to the best restaurant in Arkansas.” Like a lot of people who grew up in that part of town, a meal at Browning’s was ritual. In 1969, it seemed pretty good to me.
