Bison Burgerby Mark Shaeffer

Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar’s Plano location will open to the public for dinner service this Friday, April 25th.  Located at 4701 West Park Boulevard, Lincoln has appointed Andrew Powers (Mansion on Turtle Creek, Trece, Waldorf Astoria in Utah, Magnolia Hotel Dallas)  as executive chef of this location. The menu is an approachable one with updated steakhouse fare and inventive burger recipes in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

Powers has been with Lincoln since she opened the first location in Uptown Dallas, September 2013.  Lincoln says, “chef Powers has that rustic sensibility while at the same time refined cooking that is a good fit for this concept.  He also understands the importance of providing only the best product possible and goes out of his way working with the farmers and purveyors on sourcing.”  Powers and executive chef Juliard Ishizuka, from the Uptown location, will work in tandem and support one another for both locations.    Continue reading

Katie Francisby Mark Shaeffer

If you haven’t bought any Girl Scout Cookies yet, you have only three more days to do so. If you already have, you probably bought them from 11-year-old Katie Francis in Oklahoma City. Katie has destroyed the record for most cookies sold, which stood for close to 30 years. The previous record of 18,000 boxes was set by Elizabeth Brinton, who actually has a Wikipedia page that is divided into “cookie years” and “later years.”   Continue reading
