Emelia's Kitchen 

EMELIA'S KITCHEN You can make a meal out of the appetizers at this chic but cozy spot on Dickson Street — especially with offerings like grilled portabello mushroom stuffed with shrimp, spinach and roasted pepper cream sauce, the crab cakes and Emelia's sampler plate, called the Mazza, hummus, babakanoosh (Emelia's spelling), tabouleh, feta and stuffed grape leaves. Or you can order the grilled vegetable entree and feast on eggplant and grilled sweet peppers over a deliciously prepared rice pilaf as we did. The shish kebab — ground beef with onions and spices — turned out not to be as spicy as expected and was a bit disappointing. Specials included lamb chops; osso bucco may make an appearance on the menu. The service was a little uneven — the kitchen may not have been prepared for a tableful of crabcake lovers and they came out late — but the wine list is fine, the setting pretty and it's but a stroll to the Walton Fine Arts Center. Tuesdays are family night with specials for kids, "Wine Down Wednesday" features $5 glasses; Thursday is gyro night, Friday features a happy hour of mixed drink specials and, according to the website, Saturday is George night, when proprietor George Ouyoumjan mingles with the guests. 309 W. Dickson St. Full bar. All CC. 479-527-9800. L Tue.-Fri., B Sat.-Sun., D Tue.-Sun.

    Arkansas voters, once perversely skeptical of complicated ballot issues like constitutional amendments, have become almost comical Pollyannas, ratifying the most shocking laws.

    The Medicaid expansion helped Baxter County Regional Medical Center survive and thrive, but a federal repeal bill threatens to imperil it and its patients.
