Chef Rob Nelson of Tusk & Trotter and Chef Scott Rains of Table 28 are teaming up to host the first Culinary Initiative event in North Little Rock’s Argenta Arts District.
Tusk & Trotter is a Bentonville-based restaurant that boasts “an atmosphere casual enough to invite families with a menu sophisticated enough to wow the most traveled gourmet.”
The first-ever central Arkansas location of Tusk & Trotter is slated to open up shop in the Argenta District this summer. This Culinary Initiative event will give the area’s hungry patrons a first taste, a welcomed appetizer of what is to come in just a few short months.
According to the event’s Facebook page, Chefs Nelson and Rains will be serving attendees a delicious menu that includes pan-fried Ralston Family Farms rice crusted steelhead trout, cocoa-rosemary rubbed 44 Farms short ribs, applewood smoked Maple Farms duck ham stew and sweet potato pudding cake.
Appetizers and beers from Flyway Brewery and wines from Natural State Distributing will also be available.
The Culinary Initiative Dinner is on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. at 201 W. 4th Street in North Little Rock.
According to the Argenta Arts District’s Facebook page, tickets are already sold out for this event. But stay tuned, for they say that this is the first of many upcoming events in its 2020 Culinary Initiative.
