Due to his commitment to the Arkansas Hospitality Association, my husband will be spending more time than usual in Little Rock over the coming year. He recently presided over his first meeting as Chairman of the Board, and I was fortunate and excited to make the trip with him to the Arkansas Capital City.

Once the meetings were complete, my husband and I took a leisurely late afternoon walk, and enjoyed a cocktail before changing for dinner. Spending the night at the Capital Hotel and dining at One Eleven indulged a long held fascination – the beautiful surroundings, courteous service, welcome gift of Spiced Pecans hand crafted in the Capital Kitchens, and the 5 course Chef Degustation Menu we enjoyed, more than lived up to every expectation I held.

The next morning we were treated to a tour of the gorgeous kitchens, savored great conversation and were honored by introductions to the incredible people behind the scenes, courtesy of the wonderful, passionate General Manager/Chief Operating Officer/Innkeeper Michael Chaffin, before leaving to visit Spokes Little Rock bicycle shop, walk across the Big Dam Bridge, stop in at Kent Walker Cheeses and make the drive back home to Fayetteville.
