The Face Of Fine Dining
Arthur’s Prime Steakhouse
Jerry Barakat, Owner
Arthur’s Prime Steakhouse offers only the best grade of beef in the world, ranging from dry-aged prime natural beef to Australian wagyu and world-class authentic Japanese Kobe. All beef is dry-aged on-premise then cut in house by the most experienced butchers. The steakhouse also offers seafood, which is delivered directly three times a week, top tier lamb, free-range chicken, premium pork, creative vegetarian entrees, as well as gluten-free creations.
The restaurant has crafted an extensive, yet refined, world-class wine list, and called by the prestigious Wine Spectator as possessing some of the finest wines offered anywhere, which features super reserve and rare collection varieties.
Arthur’s is one of only a few restaurants in Arkansas that offers private wine cellar vaults for customers. In between both vaults is a 14-32 person table that friends of the cellar may use to privately entertain guests, or others may rent. The wine cellar boasts 16-foot cellar-like ceilings complete with stalactite formations hanging from the ceiling of the cellar, and warm amber lighting.
Nestled away in another private area of the restaurant is the elegant “Mark’s Crystal Room” which is just the right size for that intimate group of 10 to 30 people. It uses the finest crystal and linens with a first-class wait staff for that special occasion or professional meetings. Arthur’s has five private dining rooms. The other three are the wood encased Alexa board room that comfortably seats eight to 20; the Sofia conference room that accommodates 10-18, and the Razorback room for groups of six to 10. In addition, Arthur’s has an event center that can house your special meeting, conference, party or even a wedding for groups of 60-175.
This past year, Arthur’s expanded its horizons to a new location on Chenal Parkway in Little Rock. “I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to move to a bigger and better location,” says owner Jerry Barakat, who founded Arthur’s in 2007 and has been in the restaurant business for 38 years.“It’s a thank you gift to all our friends in Little Rock and Arkansas for being so kind and supportive to my family and myself.”
