Some tough news broke this morning out of Little Rock’s SoMa district: Esters is officially shutting its doors for good at the end of February. The eatery, known for its unique plant-based menu, announced the news on Facebook Tuesday morning.
“Well folks, it’s been a helluva journey, but it’s unfortunately time to wind it down and seek new adventures,” the post reads. “Esters is closing. No, this isn’t some sort of super-early April Fool’s joke, our last day will be Saturday, Feb. 26.”
As the announcement outlines, that is also the day of the SOMA Mardi Gras festivities, and Esters plans to use that to its advantage and shut its doors for the last time in style.
“We’re going to go out with a bang. We’ll have live music and hope to make it a party.”
In addition, from Feb. 16 to 26, all drafts, wine and liquors will be $4.50.
“To all of our guests over the last 2.5 years, but especially to our faithful regulars that we’ve seen so often over that timeframe, a million thanks just won’t suffice. Your continued support is a big part of how we were able to hang on as long as we did, and it’s appreciated more than I can ever convey.”
