Another Restaurant Question

I use to always enjoy Ashley's at the Capial hotel. I'm flying in to see some friends and noticed Ashley's is rated #2, but still the best 'fancy' restaurant.

Questions:

if I take them to Ashley's 1 night where would you suggest for night 2?

There use to be a good sushi restaurant near the Peabody, is it still there?

I appreciate any TA help or suggestions.

GOOD Restaurants the are close to the Cap. Hotel, include:

Brave New (American) It can be a pain in the to find, but it is very good and 1/2 the cost of Ashley's

Sonny Williams (Steak)

Restaurant Capeo (Italian) Just accross the river in N. LR - very good

Sushi Cafe (in the heights, about 2 to 3 miles West is the "hip place to go"). There is a sushi restaurant just East of the Capital Hotel (same side of the street) that is "OK"

Assuming you're staying downtown, Sonny Williams would be the easiest, but my favorite restaurant in Little Rock is Brave New Restaurant. It is tricky to get there, but you could always take a cab.

These are excellent recommendations by the above posters. If money were no object, my choices would also be #1 Ashleys and #2 Brave New Restaurant and for Sushi, the Sushi Cafe. If you want to eat more casually at the Capital Hotel, try their bar. The menu is good and they often have great live music. If you go to Ashley's, ask to tour the kitchen and wine cellar. It is almost as beautiful as the restaurant. If you want to look at a few more places, my wife's favorite place is a small out of the way restaurant called Terrace on the Green (can't locate website), a tiny attractive place in West Little Rock with nice hosts and a mediterranean influenced menu. Her second favorite is Trio's www.triosrestaurant.com . My daughter likes a Brazilian place in historic Hillcrest, called Cafe Bossa Nova www.cafebossanova.com

Thank you all for your suggestions. I love Little Rock and look forward to visiting my friends. I think I'll do Ashley's and then toss a coin!

Thanks again!
