Restaurant Transitions: Southern Gourmasian eatery, truck closed; Tacos 4 Life in North Little Rock; Valentine’s Day specials
Southern Gourmasian, 219 W. Capitol Ave., Little Rock, has closed. The place was dark and unoccupied Monday during business hours -- 11 a.m.-3 p.m. -- and while the phone still had not been disconnected as of Monday, the number -- (501) 313-5645 -- only returned a boilerplate voicemail message during business hours as well. Owner-chef Justin Patterson, who converted a wildly successful food truck business into a downtown storefront in 2015, confirmed that Saturday was their last day of operation, and that they've also shut down the food truck as well. He says they'd been planning to leave the storefront for some time, in part because of problems with the very old building. "We finally got some legal issues worked out for plans to leave the space," he explains, and that a planned new location fell through. He says he and business partner C.C. Key are looking to come back with a possible new concept: "We're working on some stuff right now."
