Tomas Bohm, the owner of The Pantry and The Pantry Crest, has sold District Fare, his Hillcrest sandwich shop at 2807 Kavanaugh Blvd., to Little Rock restaurateur Daniel Bryant. More big news: To run the deli, Bryant has hired Brandon Brown, who owned and operated Hillcrest Artisan Meats in the same location from 2014 until 2017, when Brown sold to Bohm. At least for now, the name will remain District Fare. Don’t look for the name to return to H.A.M., Brown said. The hours, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., also remain the same, but may expand. Brown has only been on the job for a little more than a week, but already he’s switched up the sandwich menu, adding several H.A.M. favorites and eliminating several in the District Fare lineup.

These are the first states that vote in the process, and visiting early could help to lay the groundwork ahead of what is expected to be the largest presidential Democratic candidate field in modern history. So where are they? Beyond a trip from Vermont US Senator Bernie Sanders to Iowa in February, the major names are ceding the early ground game to a relatively unknown group of potential candidates who have made frequent trips, hiring staff and calling activists so often their voicemails are ignored.Not so for the bigger candidates. Massachusetts US Senator Elizabeth Warren traveled to Ohio last week, but hasn’t set foot in an early primary … [Read more...] about In N.H., a burning political question: Where are all the big-deal Democratic presidential candidates?
