Great location for a business lunch

This is an excellent location overlooking the Arkansas River. A formal setting that is perfect for business lunch or a nice date. The menu offerings present a display of locally gathered produce and meats in a nice presentation. I highly recommend the non traditional grilled cheese sandwich. There... read more

On business in Little Rock and was looking for local flavor. After site search I found Braves. The food was excellent and the service spot on. It is a little hard to find because it is nestled within an office park but please give this gem a try. Option to dine inside or on the terrace with great view. The... More

Interesting flavor combinations you won't find elsewhere. We have been several times and it is our go-to for anniversaries and birthdays. Everyone we recommended it to has enjoyed it also.

I've been to Brave New several times and have never had a bad experience. It's a bit pricy, but if you want to have a special occasion dinner, I recommend reservations and, if it isn't too cold or too hot outside, they have remarkable riverside alfresco dining. My reviews almost always include information about gluten free options and accommodation. Although... More

I was beginning to wonder about my husband's choice of restaurant to celebrate my retirement. Brave New Restaurant is located in an office building, and there is very little signage. Parking is a bit strange and cramped. It was difficult to find the entrance, and it looked like we were going into a parking garage. Go up one floor, and... More

Brave New is a restaurant that you do not want to miss when in Little Rock. It iis a little difficult to find, but well worth it. If you can snag a table on the patio be sure to do that as the view of the Arkansas River and downtown Little Rock is spectacular. The food is always wonderful. We... More
