River Marketing? Try Lunch at Boscos W

ith an entrance hanging high over Little Rock’s River Market brick sidewalks, Boscos Restaurant and Brewing Co. is up a gentle ramp, just east of the Farmer’s Market pavilion (500 President Clinton Ave.; phone 907-1881) Enjoy a relaxing meal and perhaps one of the state’s better hand-crafted beers—$3 a mug on Mondays and Saturdays. Seating options include inside at comfortable booths or chairs; at the bar; or outside on the deck overlooking the Arkansas River, River Front Park and the Amphitheatre. If you’re there around sunset, be sure to sit on the deck facing west for a fabulous sunset over the river. Interior seating features the River Market’s ubiquitous brick-lined walls. Lots of natural light make menus easy to read. Unobtrusive background music and well-spaced tables permit easy conversation. Open from 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM; Sunday brunch starts at 10:30 AM-3:00 PM (open until 10 PM). Brunch features a jazz duo and the eggs benedict are superior.

Boscos menu is varied and includes appetizers, sandwiches and full meals. Most popular are their brick-oven gourmet pizzas, cedarplank-cooked salmon and thick pork chops. Prices are average to a little high but the food is of high quality, fresh and prepared on-site. Portions are large enough to split with a friend or take half home. That will leave room for one of their home-made desserts. Prices range from $15 for the planked salmon dinner to $9 or $10 for a large sandwich, on specialty breads with choice of a generous side of fruit,

fries or sweet potato fries. The lunch express daily special is $7. Eight hand-crafted beers are available and always-on-tap are their award-winning Flaming Stone, Downtown Brown and Isle of Skye Scottish Ale. Brewed for the Arkansas Travelers—Hook Slide Ale is also available at nearby Dickey-Stephens Park. Specials include half off selected wines on Wednesdays and the Happy Hour, from 3:30 to 6:30 PM. Access to Boscos is easy: Ramped entrance, doors are easy to open, deck is on same level as restaurant and restrooms are easily accessible and clean. The only downside to Boscos is the parking in the River Market. Try the city lot between the Farmer’s Market and the river. If you have the grandkids with you, take them to the Museum of Discovery, just east of Boscos. With a proof of admission, kids eat free at Boscos with the purchase of one adult entrée.  —AWH
