3 New Little Rock Restaurants to Visit
Parents’ night out is a treat. And while activities can vary — maybe one night you enjoy a play while another you spend at a comedy club or on a walk around the park — there’s one common thread through nearly every night out: food.
A good meal is one of the keys to a great date night, and it’s easy to get stuck in a rut, visiting your favorite restaurants over and over again. So we want to help you mix things up with three new restaurants in Little Rock to try.
1. Fassler Hall
This new German-inspired restaurant and outdoor beer garden is the perfect spot for a casual date. Plus, it’s connected to the Dust Bowl, a retro-style bowling alley. Fassler Hall’s menu is full of German staples such as bratwurst, frankfurter, spätzle and Schnitzel sandwiches. And don’t forget the beer menu — with dozens of options, both bottled and on draft, you’re sure to find something new to try.
The restaurant is located at 311 East Capitol in downtown Little Rock. It’s open Sunday-Thursday from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Visit FasslerHall.com for more information.
2. Poke Hula
Looking to try something new? Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish best described as a raw fish salad. Seasonings and garnishes include green onions, soy sauce, cucumber, avocado and more. It’s typically served on a base of white or brown rice, so the best comparison for it may be a deconstructed sushi roll.
But, if you’re not a fan of raw fish, they also offer chicken, shrimp and other protein options. At the restaurant, choose from a premade bowl on the menu or walk down the line and pick your own toppings to create the perfect meal.
A full menu and more details are available at PokeHulaAR.com. The casual restaurant is located at 419 East 3rd Street in Little Rock and is open 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
3. Agasi 7: Rooftop Bar + Kitchen
Fancy dinner and drinks with a gorgeous view? Yes, please. Agasi 7 is located atop the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Little Rock, giving guests a beautiful outlook over the city. Fire pits make outdoor seating an option even when the weather is a little cooler. But it’s not just a about the venue — the menu features unique items as well as classics.
Wood-smoked cocktails are one special item on the drink list, but they also offer a variety of beers and wines. Some of their past food specials have included a duck pot pie, a wood oven grilled New York strip steak and a fried pork chop with sweet tea demi-glace. And one of the restaurant's staples is its wood oven fired pizzas, all featuring a garlic butter crust.
For more information on Agasi 7, head to their Facebook page. The rooftop destination at 322 Rock Street is open from 4 p.m.-midnight from Sunday-Thursday and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
