“We styled this to be as authentic a New York City-style deli as possible,” says Ed Brandt about Deli-News restaurants. Having lived in NYC, both Brandt and co-owner Michael Adamovsky wanted to bring a little of the Big Apple to the Big D. And they did – they opened the first Deli-News in North Dallas in 1987. It was moved to its current location at Preston and Campbell last year, and Deli-News, Too opened its doors in January. The menu is hefty, boasting more than 250 items (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with an additional 50 dessert selections, including the crowd-pleasing white chocolate banana pudding. Not surprisingly, the Reuben is the most popular pick from the sandwich line-up. Of course, it’s not just the food that keeps customers coming back, Brandt says. “They like the New York attitude. But,” he says, “We do friendly New York.”

Often likened to other great chroniclers such as Eudora Welty, Flannery O’Connor and William Faulkner, Katie Campbell has made her name through songs that detail portraits of life in the Deep South. Campbell grew up in Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement of the ‘60s, and much of her music reflects her childhood memories. During the past 10 years, Campbell has recorded seven albums and toured throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, creating a remarkably devoted fan base. She has appeared on several national radio programs, including NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “World Café.” This month, you’ll have a chance to hear as she performs on guitar and piano, drawing from her musical roots in folk and gospel, swamp-rock and, of course, soul and blues.
