The owner of downtown Little Rock’s Copper Grill is transferring ownership of the popular eatery.
Mary Beth Ringgold will transfer ownership to former Cajun’s Wharf general manager Dan Kovach and his business partner Lelan Stice, according to a news release. Financial terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.
Ringgold, who owned Cajun’s before its June closing, will maintain ownership of Capers restaurant and the Market at Capers on Highway 10.
“As a star of Cajun’s Wharf for nearly two decades, I know Dan is the perfect fit to take over Copper Grill,” Ringgold said. “I wish him and Lelan the best of luck as they revamp Copper Grill and position it for even more success.”
Opened in 2007, Copper Grill is located in the 300 Third Tower on the corner of Third and Cumberland Streets in downtown Little Rock. The urban restaurant is a popular lunch and dinner eatery.
It boasts a diverse menu, robust wine list and private party room.
“While we don’t plan to make any significant changes to Copper Grill, we do hope to roll out a new menu by late November,” said Kovach. “We also look forward to offering nightly fresh seafood specials and signature Cajun’s Wharf offerings such as the Boston Casserole, Oysters Bienville, Crab Au Gratin and the Play-De-Do.”
