Table 28, Little Rock, Arkansas

Table28 is located inside the Burgundy Hotel

Wanted to try Table 28 for awhile and knew that could accommodate gluten free patrons from a previous review, we tried one Friday night but was booked so came back on a slow night and got right in. It’s inside the Burgundy Hotel which is a hip/posh hotel or at least tries to be,located near West Little Rock.

We got sat by the hostess then a guy filled our water and we waited for 7 minutes (we almost got up and left). Finally the bartender came over and said our waiter was late and he had to take our order. Classy.

Table 28 Spread, all the “modern” except the “quality”

Told us the Artichoke was gluten free, how ever not the pita but did bring out some carrot slices instead which didn’t pair at all but still was a thoughtful gesture, the artichoke dip itself was very good. I chose the Beef Filet Tenderloin which came with carrot fries and parsnip. It was tasty, nothing super special however was a decent piece of beef.

Chic-eh.. interior at Table 28

Lady had the Meatloaf and enjoyed hers as well. I’d prob order something different next time since the steak quality for $38 is not justified in the quality of beef that was served. We had a few cocktails, nothing to rave about.

I’d come back here after exploring the rest of Little Rock’s culinary scene, maybe we went on an off night, however the atmosphere was awesome.

Arthur’s Steakhouse in Little Rock, AR

Huzzah! Knights of the Round Table, wanted to find a new joint in Little Rock that was royal as King Arthur himself, so hopefully this restaurant would suit him, review below.

Gluten Free Review
+ask your server
+no separate menu

Went here for the lady’s birthday and a royal occasion. Walking in there was a lawn crew blowing leaves with their truck at the front door so we had to wait till they stopped to walk in, they must have been running late that day. The inside is very dark, ornate, almost dated, but has a good feel and smell’s pleasant. The chairs, menus could use an update, the chairs were worn with chipped wood, paint, etc. The menus we both got were dirty with stains, markings, and wrinkles, however we had to give it a shot!

 

Our waitress was cool, almost to cool, and the service was mostly awesome, even with the I think owner coming out discussing issues with his staff and asking how our food was. He was there which makes me feel comfortable.

Pork Belly + Feta + Watermelon = Excellent.

We started with some libations and an appetizer and both were excellent, changed my views immediately on the minor indifference’s of Arthur’s. It was pork belly with watermelon? I mean who would have thought they pair so nicely. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the sweet potato sides were awesome. The food was excellent.

Feast at Arthur’s of Steak + Sweet Potatoes + Brussels

The only reason for not 1 star besides the small issues, was the desert “prepared table side” bananas fosters. What we got? a chic with her lighter that barely lit light up a 2 second flame on this ice cream and bananas dish. Then she laughed and walked off, It was like taking a shot of rum each bite. Dessert was crap, however everything else was excellent will def be back!

Looks good, but that liquid is pure rum. Tasted like shit, well the rum lover in me loves rum don’t get me wrong but I wanted it to be so damn good.

Grub Sesh at Republic of Texas in Corpus

Since I was in town for the week, we decided to go hit up the Republic again. This time I made a video post which I might start doing on some smaller items so let me know what you think.

This time around Republic was 5 star all the way, and it was all thanks to an excellent waiter and excellent chef. The food was awesome, the service was excellent, the sides were perfect and he made sure to double check everything was (gluten-free) for me. So check it out below!

This time tried a new dish called the Filet Chateaubriand which is cooked at your table and you hear that sizzle pop overlooking the Corpus Christi bay. Don’t forgot the farm fresh vegetables cooked with some amazing tasting potatoes. Most farmy organic experience I’ve had in Corpus yet, down on the farm son.

Trip to Asia Cafe in CC and a retry at Bleu Bistro

Asia Cafe: Saw this spot driving by on my daily route and being gluten-free never wanted to stop here due to one time called and they didn’t carry gluten-free soy sauce.

However, I saw a “Pho” sign and was like bam let’s try it, the service, interior, and staff were all on point and offered excellent accommodations.

Pretty good Pho first time around!

Char-grilled Beef with Spring Rolls

There Thai tea is amazing as well as their regular sweet tea. They have a full sushi bar, lobster tank, and a few TV’s to watch. I got a Rainbow roll and some Pho with beef, it was all very good. Saves me so much time now from driving all the way across town to another Pho place. The second time I went was a total let down, full of fatty meat and the broth tasted like water, and I went a third time and was the same, so crossed this one off my list, sad because I had such high hopes and now it went to shit.

Next stop: A re visit to Bleu Bistro in Downtown Corpus, hit read more!
