Following the tragic loss of George Floyd in a Minneapolis police-involved death, Little Rock has joined countless other cities around the country with peaceful protests and demonstrations in recent days. As the Little Rock City Director for Ward 4, a neighborhood she has lived in for nearly 40 years, Trio’s Restaurant executive chef and co-owner Capi Peck brings a unique perspective to the city’s response.
“I think all in all, Little Rock has handled things the best we possibly could,” Peck said. “With everything so political and so polarizing, it makes it hard to put people at ease. We could be in a very different situation right now, so I do applaud the LRPD, Mayor Scott and others for condoning peaceful protests.”
Peck shared more with host Natalie Ghidotti on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including how Trio’s has navigated the COVID-19 outbreak, why she has elected not to open the dining room at this time, what she learned about the hospitality industry from her grandparents, the longtime owners of Hotel Sam Peck and her thoughts on the current lawsuits against Little Rock Chief of Police Keith Humphrey.
