0 Around Town: The Packet House Grill

>> Thursday, September 27, 2012

Recently a new Little Rock hotspot, The Packet House Grill, opened its doors for business and when there is new food in town, I’m always up for giving it a whirl.

The Packet House has been a Little Rock landmark for well over a century but has been sitting empty for quite some time while waiting on a new owner to come along and give it the facelift it deserved…now we are talking food and renovation? You know I’m pumped!

Last year, the plan for the Packet House Grill was put into the works and the boyfriend and I had the chance to stop by earlier this week to see it in action.

Now, forgive me for the dark photos. First of all, it was night. Second of all, a couple glasses of wine over dinner makes for a clumsy photographer.

Gah-orgeous stained glass windows greet you as you head to the front porch…

And this is where the fun really starts. Holy purple chandy. This killer chandelier will grab anyone’s attention…


There are several dining rooms and the room that we were seated in was perfection. Cozy curtains, rich purples, local artwork, snuggly pillows, comfy bench seating, warm drum shades…A completely refreshing, and somewhat unexpected, look judging solely from the traditional exterior…


The decor was yummy but the best news? So was the food! I went with the pork chop, boyfriend had the duck and we gobbled down crab cakes to start. I could have eaten an entire bowl full of the lemony arugula on top of the crabby cake…

We wrapped up our date night with an after dinner glass of vino at the bar before they closed for the evening…


Luckily, we weren’t the only stragglers hanging around to soak up all they could before the doors closed for the night…
