What's Cookin', Aug. 5

Browning's, the Heights Tex-Mex standby for more than 60 years, shut its doors Tuesday, possibly for good.

"We closed because we were operating with significant losses," said David Ashmore, who purchased the restaurant from the Phelan family in 2007 with partners Richard Harrison and Wally Roland (Harrison left the partnership after the first year). "We're trying to regroup."

Which includes courting potential partners and buyers, Ashmore said.

The news, first reported on our Eat Arkansas blog, has inspired a massive comment thread, both on Eat Arkansas and the Arkansas Blog.

Argenta Restaurant Week continues through Saturday, Aug. 7, with nearly every restaurant in downtown North Little Rock offering two-course lunches or three-course dinners for set prices. Those offering two-course lunches for $8 include Argenta Market, Cornerstone Pub & Grill, Cregeen's Irish Pub, Reno's Argenta Cafe, Starving Artist Cafe and Ump's Pub & Grill. Those offering three-course dinners for $25 include Benihana, Ristorante Capeo, Riverfront Steakhouse and Starving Artist Cafe.
