There is a new business moving into the East Village! Set to open in early 2018, Cathead’s Diner, headed up by Executive Chef Donnie Ferneau and Executive Pastry Chef Kelli Marks, will feature a menu that will include breakfast, lunch, dinner, pastries, and desserts.
The new restaurant will be located at 515 Shall Avenue on the first level of the recently renovated Paint Factory. It will feature a private party room, patio seating, and a dining room that will seat around 90.
Ferneau is an accomplished chef who has been making amazing food in Little Rock for quite some time. He has cooked all over the city and has also owned several restaurants in the capital city. He has also been featured on Food Network and the Cooking Channel.
Marks owned Sweet Love Bakery for several years. She closed her store but never stopped making wedding cakes and other baked goods for the people of Little Rock. She has been featured in Southern Living and several other magazines.
Marks and Ferneau have worked together in several different ways throughout the years and they decided to turn their friendship into a partnership. The new restaurant will also create several new job opportunities in the growing area. The East Village is so excited to welcome Cathead’s Diner into the neighborhood.
