OKG eat: Highfalutin dining


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

You don’t have to be a millionaire or a head of state to eat like one. While dining like a king every night might quickly take its toll on your pocketbook, sometimes it feels good to eat like a well-heeled big wheel. For a special occasion or maybe just as a special treat, look no farther than these upscale eateries to tempt your taste buds and delight your palate.

Food and Drink Features

Two enterprising former restaurant owners looked around Oklahoma City’s restaurant industry and thought it could be a lot greener. Chris Buerger and his partner, Brian DeShazo, took notice of the fact that there is no infrastructure to recycle in area restaurants.

It’s easy being green

Local farmers are making it easier than ever to eat fresh in OKC.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
There was a time not too long ago when it was difficult to find out where your food came from. More specifically, we all know where food comes from, but not in the sense that we have any inkling of the person who picked the potato or carrot on our plates. It is a fairly safe assumption that quite a few people do not know what garlic looks like growing in the ground. A surprising number of Americans do not know the provenance of their food.

OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.

Drinking al fresco

With warmer weather comes opportunities to enjoy libations on rooftops and in the great outdoors.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
One of the first signs of spring every year is the increase in drinkers and diners spending beautiful afternoons and evenings on metro restaurant patios. As the number of restaurants in the metro continues to grow, so do the number of patio options, but very few provide spectacular views of the city while you enjoy your spring cocktails. Here are three hot spots worth visiting for more than just food and drinks.

Beer and wine

Welcome spring with wines and beers fit for the season.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
“Drink pink” is the rallying cry of spring for many wine lovers. The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better. While white wines, especially sweeter ones, dominate the spring and summer, many wine lovers still prefer dry, red wines.
