Diners at North Little Rock's Capeo restaurant were a bit surprised last night to find themselves supping in the same rare air as five-time Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola.
Rock Candy's intrepid network of spies say Coppola came to Capeo's at around 10 p.m. last night with a group of suits from Little Rock's Falcon Jet. Word has it that Coppola is getting his jet retrofitted there. He was previously spotted in March 2009 at The Flying Fish in the River Market, where he dined alone on shrimp and a dozen oysters.
This go round, our eyewitnesses said, Coppola ordered a seven course meal (insert your joke about an offer he couldn't refuse here) then slept it off last night at the Capital Hotel downtown.
