Some of you may have noticed that popular 12th Street NE restaurant Little Ricky’s was closed last weekend. We caught up with owner Chase Moore to find out what’s up. Turns out that they have been planning bit of a re-boot for a while now. They have been open since November, and by now have gotten a better sense of what needs to be tweaked. They have some interesting ideas for providing an even better dining experience, and are seriously considering opening for additional nights. For now, Chase wanted me to share that he will be “hosting a happy hour and art opening on Friday, June 7th at the restaurant. Happy hour will be at the bar from 5-8. We will also have many new menu items.” For those of us who admired the pin-up-girl-meets-communist-state artwork by Cuban artist Ahmed Gomez , get ready for something new. Ricky’s crew is busy hanging all new artwork, and Chase added “this time it is going to be an exhibition of various Cuban artists”. Little Ricky’s is located at 3522 12th St. NE. They are open Thurs – Sat from 11: 30 – 3:00, 5:00 – 10:00 and Sunday for brunch from 10:00 – 5:00.
