Restaurant notes: James sets its finale

Saturday, May 7 will be the last night of service at James in Bella Vista, as owners Jim and Kristina Burke have found a buyer after nearly five years. (Stay tuned for the ID.)

As for the couple's next stop, "we have seen a few spaces," Kristina Burke told me. "One excites us more than the other. Jim and I aren't hopping into anything unless it moves us."

She says she has been gratified by the outpouring of support.

Here's the background on the closing.
