A Visit To Polk-A-Dot Bakery

by Steven Doyle

I had a chance to stop into the Polk-A-Dot Bakery this weekend and found some pretty marvelous goods being offered at this one year old business. The very quaint bakery is located in Addison Circle served breakfast and lunch, but is open most nights until 9pm, offering their guests spectacular coffees and free wifi on into the night.

The new owner Nicole Margulies can be found tending to details and a certain happiness quotient exudes as her patrons snapped up all the fresh cookies, brownies and cupcakes she has to offer.     Continue reading

The Social House: Badass Onion Soup

by Judy Chamberlain

We’re an odd pair, The Social House and I.

I’m a jazz singer who prefers soft music – or none at all – when I dine. The Social House is LOUD and favors a mix of rock music that sometimes veers into hip hop.

A twenty-five year veteran food critic and food snob from both the East and West Coasts, I’m usually not drawn to happy hour and party-style hangouts. Not anymore, anyway – although I will confess to having been at the opening night of the notorious nightclub Arthur in the 1970’s, the one in Manhattan that was co-owned by Beatle George Harrison, not to be confused with quaint antiquity Arthur’s Prime Steakhouse on Quorum Drive.  Continue reading

Soups On! At King’s Noodles

by Steven Doyle

The temperatures are still fairly high, but definitely a relief from the boiling 100+ degrees we endured this Summer. With thoughts of Fall weather in our heads we can start planning our diets to fit cooler times.

One of my favorite restaurants in the Dallas area is a tiny shop in Richardson called King’s Noodles. Spartan, tiny and often crowded, delicious are a few words to describe King’s.  Continue reading
