The Fold, the new taqueria and cocktail bar from Bart Barlogie and Wilson Brandt, opened this weekend in Riverdale. They’re open Tues. – Thur. 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.; Fri. – Sat. 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 a.m.; Sun. 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. (phone number: 916-9706). Based on the epic lines at Local Lime, the market for upscale and eclectic Mexican food in Little Rock is strong, so we’re expecting a hit. Located in a renovated 1950s gas station at 3501 Old Cantrell Hill Road, the restaurant’s specialty is botanas — small plates, or snacks — while the bar will focus on Mezcal. We’re psyched to sample the cocktails, which feature hand-squeezed juice. See some samples after the jump.
