New Orleans Cuisine

The Faded Rose brings a true New Orleans restaurant style to Little Rock. It opened in 1982 and since day one has been offering the highest quality New Orleans steaks and traditional Creole comfort food. The family-owned restaurant blends its own spice mixes, cuts its own steaks and makes its own sauces. Definitely worth trying are Rose’s garlic chicken and the pasta Diane.

The Cajun’s Wharf

Cajun’s is famous for its fabulously fresh seafood, aged Angus Beef, and full-flavored good times. The view off their deck overlooking the Arkansas river and the delicious meals make it the perfect combo for a night out in the town. The names of the meals in the menu are fancy, and the food directly corresponds in fanciness. Try some of their hot crayfish and shrimp dip, crispy fried calamari or boiled shrimp, just to name a few. Such seafood delicatessens, usually typical for a coastal city, are a rare find in landlocked Arkansas, but they’re hard to forget once tasted.

Address & telephone number: 2400 Cantrell Rd, Little Rock, +1 501-375-5351

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
