If they have walleye on the menu, it will be one of the best meals you've ever had. Great atmosphere but hard to find.

Peter Brave, the chef/owner of Brave New Restaurant, is really The Fish Whisperer. He just knows how to make fish delicious. That's not to say the other menu choices aren't delicious, because they are. Chef Brave often leaves the open kitchen to check on or just chat with his guests, a nice touch. Don't be deterred by the location which... More

Breve has a great, creative menu with a lot of diverse options. The seafood is excellent. There is a cool bar there with a great bartender and in the place of months, it is fine to sit outside with a view over the river.

In clement weather, the balcony offers scenic views of the Arkansas River, plus a large bird feeder that attracts interesting avian guests. You'll very likely need reservations, and if you've never been... More

Very nice place to dinner with family, friends or business colleagues. Good service (really good!), food and environment. It's quite difficult to find the restaurant due to its in an apartment build, however don't give up and go there!
