BITS & PIECES: A new diner in town
We breakfasted Wednesday morning with our good friend Leslie Kent, whose work sometimes appears on these web pages. We ate at Matty’s, Arkadelphia’s newest eatery. It was a pleasurable dining experience, and we’ll be back, perhaps for a review. It’s certainly popular among our personal Facebook friends who lately have been posting pictures of the food. We chatted for some 10 minutes with the proprietor, Darren Ayres, who at first stood unknowingly before this news editor. He was appreciative for our endeavor to inform the community and said he realized our reach soon after we broke news that the property would be rezoned, as he was bombarded (our word, not his) by friends asking about the new restaurant. As the couple at the table next to us stood to leave, the gentleman interrupted Darren to salute arkadelphian.com’s work. We replied with a shy “Thank you.” We hope and expect Matty’s will become a staple in Arkadelphia’s small business community.
