Having trained at the St. Francis in San Francisco and the Capital Hotel in Little Rock, chef and owner Peter Brave has created a popular niche with his exquisite cuisine and casual atmosphere. For starters try the goat cheese mouse, or you might prefer the large gulf shrimp marinated with sliced red onion, dill and vinegar. For dinner, try the pine nut crusted salmon filet sautéed and topped with pesto.
This small restaurant serves a wonderful variety of dishes, from Greek eggplant salads, to Italian pastas, to Thai chicken in peanut sauce. You cannot go wrong with any dish prepared by chef and owner Jerry Barakat, and the portions are more than enough. Do not be discouraged if you have trouble finding the place; it is located on the bottom floor of an office building, and most of its lunch clientele are business executives. Still, its romantic candlelit tables by night make it a great spot for a romantic evening.

Eating inside by the fire or outside on the deck, Capers' laid-back dining features New-American Cuisine and an award-winning wine list. The elegantly casual atmosphere is almost as enjoyable as the food. Start with the artichokes with fresh mushroom stuffing, topped with lump crabmeat and spicy Cajun cream sauce. Then try the filet mignon or rib-eye steaks coupled with Capers' signature sauces. The grilled salmon is also a treat. Arkansas' Best Salad features mixed baby lettuces topped with fresh Arkansas-grown tomatoes, mozzarella and crumbled feta cheese, a fresh basil chiffonade and a masterful balsamic vinaigrette.
