Bienvenue represents something special for Northwest Arkansas: a new French restaurant owned and operated by a New Orleans chef, serving traditional French bistro cuisine. It’s a project helmed by chef and owner Will Mauk, who moved to the area nearly a decade ago to chase the dream of owning his own restaurant, his way. Like most chefs, Mauk has worked for a lot of different people and restaurant entities during his 20-year career.
A photograph captures an entire story in just one image. It holds a memory, reminding us of a special moment or relationship and transporting us back to another time and place. Whitney and David Scott understand that. Their photography business, Whitney Scott Photography, revolves around telling a client’s story through the photographs they take — capturing people’s feelings, personalities and relationships.
This month is known for one of Northwest Arkansas’ favorite fundraising events. Soup Sunday, held each winter by Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, is a cozy gathering where restaurants from all over the area come together and serve their specialty soups. The event also includes live music, a kid zone and, new this year, a baked goods auction. It’s an event unlike any other and sure to be a hit again this year.
