Third in a Blog Series: ArtWorks XXVII to Feature Fabulous Fare

Guest Blog By Lauren James, Rep Communications Director

Think Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s big art fundraiser, ArtWorks XXVIII, is only about artwork? Think again!

This year’s event will feature a diverse offering of fabulous fare from new and old favorites, including downtown Little Rock’s hot spot Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co. as well as popular eatery Sufficient Grounds, West Little Rock’s Italian favorite BRAVO! Cucina Italiana and more. Here is a look at what nosh you can expect from these delectable eateries:

Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co.
This absolutely scrumptious dumpling spot returns as a favorite. They will be serving their newest seasonal noodle dish, called Sichuan Mala Mian, or “Sichuan Cold Noodles.” We love the super-popular homemade dumplings, so we can only imagine how delicious these noodles are going to be!

Sufficient Grounds
One of Little Rock’s most popular coffee shops returns with their special treats—sweet and savory—as well as delightful espresso. Munch on some savory appetizers and satisfy your sweet tooth with cake bites or a yummy smoothie. And if you need a little jolt to inspire your art purchases, a portable espresso bar will be serving your caffiene needs!

BRAVO! Cucina Italiana
Love Italian food? You’re in luck! In addition to the delicious offerings from our other vendors, the Promenade at Chenal’s BRAVO! Cucina Italiana will be bringing several more yummy options to whet your appetite. This includes:

Caprese Salad: This summer classic will feature marinated tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, field greens, olive oil and a balsamic glaze.
Mushroom Bruschetta: Feast on toasted ciabatta bread topped with melted provolone cheese, sautéed portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, crushed red pepper, diced tomatoes and garnished with Boursin cheese.
Polenta and Meatballs: Add this to your plate – homemade beef and pork meatballs, creamy mascarpone polenta, tomato marsala sauce, balsamic glaze and Parmesan cheese.
Cannoli Crumble: Top off the night with Bravo’s twist on the traditional cannoli, which is a lightly sweetened ricotta filling with chocolate chips and pastry crumbles.


Here are some other spots that will be offering mouth-watering grub:
