Mamacita Makes Move Into Snake-bit Location in Heights

The Satellite Cafe turned Seoul Korean Cuisine turned Early Bird turned Heights Cafe is getting another new occupant.

Or so says Joseph Park, who has applied for a mixed-drink permit from Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control for the seemingly snake-bit location at 5923 Kavanaugh Blvd. in Little Rock.

Park works with Little Rock businessman Steve Im, who, when we last reported, was working to open two restaurants in Conway. Those were Mexican restaurant Mamacita and Japanese steakhouse Kobe of Conway.

Park said in December that the goal was to get both restaurants open during the first week of January. Neither Conway restaurant had opened late last week.

However, Park told Whispers that another Mamacita is what’s going into the ex-Heights Cafe in Little Rock.

Little Rock’s Mamacita should open in February or March, Park said.
