24. Little Fish
It’s hard to imagine how Little Fish, the now-slightly-bigger-than-postage-stamp-sized BYOB in Bella Vista, is still improving. After all, it’s been several years since Mike Stollenwerk’s original restaurant received national praise as one of America’s best seafood restaurants. Stollenwerk has since sold Little Fish to chef Chadd Jenkins, and the restaurant has relocated down 6th Street to slightly larger (but still definitely little) confines. And yet it might just be a better restaurant than ever. The fish is perfectly cooked, and the $25-and-up prices are more than justified by the creative showcasing of surf, turf and fowl, with veal sausage knocking the cobia up a notch and duck with lentils and red wine making tuna feel new again.
Value Play: Little Fish’s $33 Sunday-night tasting menu is still one of the best deals anywhere.
