Heather Baber-Roe has made a name for herself in Central Arkansas’ culinary scene, and much to the delight of diners, she and husband Craig Roe keep coming back for seconds, thirds and fourths.
The popularity of Baber-Roe’s projects can’t be overstated. Baja Grill serves Mexi-Cali fare at two popular locations in Benton and the Heights, while Valhalla :: Kitchen + Bar is a must-visit for pizza and brunch – and a friendly bit of axe throwing upstairs at Valkyrie.
Baber-Roe knows how vital her team has been in supporting each of these ventures. Without them, creating must-visit restaurants and incredible atmospheres wouldn’t be possible. That spirit of collaboration will continue in the couple’s latest concept, RŌBER.
Call it a victory lap or just another winning idea from the talented mind of Baber-Roe. Either way, RŌBER is set to be one of the most highly-anticipated restaurant openings of the year. It’s an exciting departure from the more casual styles of Baja Grill and Valhalla, but the food and drinks will stay true to the restaurateur’s reputation for delicious flavors and fresh ingredients.
Located next to Baber-Roe’s other businesses at The Palace in Benton, RŌBER will be the latest addition to the newly-christened South Street Entertainment District. The restaurant will offer an open-view charcuterie bar, an eclectic lounge facing South Street and an intimate 54-seat dining room featuring a beautiful fire table.
In addition to the artfully crafted dinner menu, Baber-Roe has cut no corners when it comes to the drink selection. Premium wines, classic and signature cocktails and whiskey flights can all be enjoyed alongside tastefully prepared charcuterie featuring meats cut by an authentic Italian slicing machine.
Whether it’s a cocktail hour with friends or a high-end dinner experience, RŌBER is sure to become another Central Arkansas staple thanks to Baber-Roe and her team.
