Little Rock restaurant Petit & Keet has announced the return of the annual Jacques & Suzanne Legacy Celebration starting on Sept. 14. 


Petit & Keet will revive the historic Jacques & Suzanne menu over the course of four evenings. The first two nights will be available by reservation only with the Jacque & Suzanne Legacy menu, and a condensed special menu – along with items from the regular Petit & Keet menu – will be provided the next two nights. Guests can expect traditional Swiss-French style cuisines like Escargot and Seafood Cardinal. 


Jacques & Suzanne was an upscale “coat-and-tie” venue on the thirtieth floor of the First National Bank Building. Established in 1975 by Swiss husband and wife duo Jacques and Suzanne Tritten, the two boased a staff including General Manager Henri Monod, Executive Chef Paul and Head Waiter Louis Petit. Jacques & Suzanne closed in 1986 with a black-tie event.

Last summer, Petit & Keet worked closely with the historic restaurant’s original chef and staff members to recreate the menu for a one-night celebration on Petit & Keet’s anniversary date. Due to the success of that evening, Petit & Keet is extending this year’s event over four days.


Guests will also have the option to order from the regular Petit & Keet menu on those evenings. The menu will be available on the Petit & Keet website later this week. Online reservations can also be made on their website.
