French fare at Café Cuvée
If you haven’t yet tried the approachable French food prepared by Midtown’s Café Cuvée, now is the time! The menus include delicious items like Crêpes Suzette, Boeuf Bourguignon, Ratatouille Croquettes, signature cocktails and much more. Breakfast and lunch are served daily from 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. with dinner service available Friday-Sunday from 5-9 p.m. While you’re there, you might as well book a stay at the Ambassador Hotel and make a romantic weekend of it.
House Specials at Redrock Canyon Grill
One of the many house specialties you’ll find on the menu is the Short Smoked North Coast Salmon. Grilled to perfection, it’s paired with a sweet rémoulade, couscous and the daily vegetable. We also suggest adding a starter order of the Iron Skillet Cornbread made with Redrock’s signature recipe. If that doesn’t tempt you, the view of Lake Hefner from the patio sure will!
Brunch at FLINT
When you stay at Downtown OKC’s Colcord Hotel, you’ll be waking up just steps from some of the best breakfast and brunch in the city. Go for a tasty skillet like the Creole Shrimp & Grits or one of the fantastic entrées offered like the Chilaquiles Wrap and SXSW Benedict. We recommend the Westbound & Down three-egg omelette made with chorizo, poblano, caramelized onion and queso fresco topped with salsa verde. It’s pictured above with a side order of biscuits and gravy, but there are a variety of fantastic sides to pair your meal with. You’ll be refueled and ready for another great day exploring Oklahoma City.
Combinations at Hollie’s Flatiron Grill
Conveniently located right off of I-35 in Moore, Hollie’s Flatiron Grill is a great place to pull over for a casual meal with Southwestern flair. A hungrier traveler should give one of the many combination platters a try. Featured above is the Slow-Roasted Yard Bird and St. Louis-Style Smoked Ribs served with a side baked potato. Adding a side of fried green tomatoes is a must if they’re available.
Grilled Filet at Café Alley
Ardmore’s top restaurant on Yelp is a local favorite for a reason. We talked about the delicious Southern Favorite burger on our Best Burgers blog, but this is also an ideal place to order a steak. Our suggestion is the 6 oz. center-cut USDA Choice filet topped with mouth-watering Worcestershire butter. Add a side of redskin mashed potatoes and fire-roasted corn and you are in for a treat. Café Alley has been satisfying cravings since 1986, so definitely stop by if you’re in the Ardmore area.
Rednexican Nacho at Butcher BBQ Stand
This beautiful creation is made with tri-colored tortilla chips, white queso, roasted corn and beans, BBQ sauce, fresh jalapeño and cilantro. And the meat? Butcher BBQ’s famous brisket, pulled pork and chicken! If you’re looking to switch up your order from the always-delicious burnt ends and ribs, this is a strong contender. Be sure to arrive early (and hungry), this joint sees lines forming as early as 9 a.m. but so worth it.
Bakery Items at La Baguette Bistro
For an authentic taste of France, we know La Baguette has it all. However, we’d be remiss to not mention the incredible bakery and wine shop that adjoins the restaurant. This is great if you’re on the hunt for treats to make a birthday or anniversary extra special. A variety of cakes are available by the slice or in 6- or 12-inch sizes, plus cookies and handcrafted truffles that are almost too pretty to eat. These items are on hand in the display cases on the daily, but you can always call ahead to place an order.
Buffalo Chicken Wontons at The Winston
The Winston is a hotspot in Norman due to its wide selection of whiskeys and craft cocktails. That makes appetizers all the more important! These plates give yummy pub food an elevated modern flair that hits the spot every time. Give the Buffalo Chicken Wontons a go and don’t forget about $2 Tuesdays where tacos, parmesan truffle fries, mimosas and beers are only $2.
Cattlemen’s Top Sirloin Steak
Cattlemen’s has been an OKC staple for over 100 years. They’ve truly perfected the art of preparing steak and the top sirloin is no exception. It’s cut extra thick for extra goodness from aged beef and served with a Cattlemen’s salad, baked potato and homemade rolls. Pair it with a bold red wine and you’re in for a hearty, flavorful meal in Historic Stockyards City.
Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill
This Bricktown institution gets its name from Toby Keith’s hit song, and its menu items live up to the hype. As you enjoy the sounds of country music and daily beer specials, what could be better than an old-fashioned, 16 oz. chicken fried steak? Served with mashed potatoes, country gravy and green beans, this will fill your belly and have you singing with happiness as you stroll down the Bricktown Canal.
