Starving Artist Cafe-Main St, NLR

Photo from Starving Artist Cafe-Main St, NLR

Having outgrown its original snug space on West Seventh Street in downtown Little Rock, owners Paula and Jason Morrell - Jason's also the chef - have moved their establishment across the river to North Little Rock's Argenta district, where, bustling as it is with art galleries, pubs and cafes, this art gallery/cafe hybrid fits right in.
The Main Street storefront gives the Morrells twice as much space as their old location, so naturally they have invested it with twice as much artwork, just as profusely displayed as it was in the old place. The red-painted walls are full of colors and styles so riotous that it's difficult to take it all in at a glance. (We did particularly notice a dark portrait of Shakespeare and a pair of Mona Lisa eyes with a row of numbers underneath.)
