Our favorite Batesville restaurant burned last night


Josie’s, a rustic restaurant overlooking the White River on the west side of Batesville, Ark., was damaged by fire late last night.

Details are sketchy. The only report I can find says the fire was reported at 11:10 p.m. when a private party was in progress at the restaurant.

So why do I care? After several disappointing restaurant experiences, we discovered Josie’s a few years ago on a trip to Batesville so Maria could stock up on quilting fabric at Marshall’s Dry Goods. We found the menu and the atmosphere to our liking.

I hope the owners rebuild and it’s not the end of Josie’s.
