The Italian food-shaped hole in The Heights is about to be filled once again. 

George's, an "elevated" Italian restaurant, is moving into the former Cafe Prego location at 5510 Kavanaugh Blvd. Behind the restaurant are Little Rock natives Mary Olive and John Stephens, who were inspired by their travels abroad to bring "Italian excellence with local taste" to The Heights. 

We don't know much about what to expect from George's just yet, but the menu will feature classic Italian dishes "with a local spin." As for the space, guests will enjoy three dining areas, an outdoor patio and a hidden speakeasy bar, the design of which will play into the structure's Tudor design.

George’s is expected to open in late 2022. Keep an eye on their website and Instagram for updates.
