Main Street Food Truck Festival to be held October 4


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 22, 2014) - The Downtown Little Rock Partnership will present the Main Street Food Truck Festival on Saturday, October 4.

This is the fourth annual festival, started by DLRP and the Main Street Revitalization Committee to help bring people back to Main Street, as ideas for a major renaissance on Main Street were starting to gel.

"We are excited to show this year's attendees the difference another year can make on Main Street! The 4th annual Main Street Food Truck Festival will be the best yet," said Sharon Priest, executive director of Downtown Little Rock Partnership. "If you are here for the Susan G. Komen race, which crosses Main Street at 6th in the heart of the festival, come by for the early bird breakfast 8-10 a.m. and then stay until 4 p.m. for the ultimate foodie experience."

Little Rock, Big Food: Hillcrest welcomes Kemuri


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Brian Kearns, executive chef at Kemuri, Arthur's Prime Steakhouse and Ocean's at Arthur's, stopped by THV11 Saturday morning to talk about Kemuri, which just opened in Hillcrest.

Kemuri is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in a grilling style called robata, a technique that uses an open charcoal fire to cook proteins, such as chicken, shrimp and scallops. It creates a unique flavor that's inherently Japanese but will really appeal to people who like American grilling. The restaurant also creates sushi dishes, using recipes created by Ocean's sushi chef Alex Guzman.

Kearns previously worked in St. Louis before helping open YaYa's Euro Bistro in Little Rock.
