The Arcade Restaurant Review: The Arcade in the South Main Arts District has been slinging plates of hash browns, eggs and biscuits for nearly 100 years. And its looks haven’t changed much since the building’s redesign in the 1950s. Diner fare is served on kitschy boomerang tabletops, the same tabletops, in fact, where Elvis Presley was served. The King frequented The Arcade in his day, and a gold plaque marks his favorite booth. Still available is Elvis’ go-to sandwich: fried peanut butter and banana. Midday fare varies from meat-and-three plate lunches to gourmet pizzas; favorites include the Downtowner pizza (garlic, ricotta and mozzarella, tomatoes, pesto, artichoke hearts, red onions and black olives) and Ms. Polly's Greek Lover (pesto, walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese). For dessert, we suggest the beignets with powdered sugar.
