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.

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.

OKG7 eat: Soccer pub crawl


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Football season is finally here! We call it soccer, but that doesn’t have to stop you from indulging in two favorite European traditions: walking and pub crawling. Since the Energy FC games will be alcohol-free, we’ve created a list of pubs and taverns within walking distance from Clement E. Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

OKG7 eat: BBQ for me and you


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Ubiquitous barbecue joints are a point of state pride and, in some cases, a reason to poke fun. When comedian Jim Gaffigan visited Oklahoma last year, he commented on the sheer number of barbecue restaurants in the Sooner State. Whether it’s the rub or the sauce, pork or beef, there’s one thing we all can agree on: A full plate of smoky, sweet barbecue with all the sides is heavenly.

OKG7 Eat: Eastside eats


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

Even though NE 23rd Street is one of the most historical streets in Oklahoma City, many locals tend to forget that it’s also home to some of the most grassroots and homegrown eateries in town, the best having a specific focus on soul food, barbecue and old-fashioned Southern cooking. NE 23rd Street restaurants are OKC’s culinary history all in a few blocks and really should be revered as such.

OKG7 Eat: Love bites


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
But what about the lonely, the unloved and the unattached left to put ourselves back together after the interruptus of Valentine’s Day? Bah. Heck, you’ve still got a pocket of dollars and a chip on your shoulder. Here’s a list of places to spend that extra dough, all on the one person you should love the most: Yourself.

OKG7 Hot tropic


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
We can only stare at Old Man Winter and hope that someday we’ll thaw out and retire to a sandy, tropical locale somewhere along the equator, where we can enjoy various fruit-heavy drinks and exotic meals served by well-trained monkey butlers. Even though that Jimmy Buffett-inspired daydream might not happen anytime soon, the metro offers plenty of tropical getaways that will drive those winter doldrums away.

OKG7 Eat: Winning in Windsor


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Situated west of Interstate 44 to the Bethany line on the NW 23rd Street corridor, the Windsor District is the latest metro initiative designed to show off the best culture Oklahoma City has to offer. After a city investment of $13.2 million dollars through the 2013-2016 Streetscape Project, Windsor has fast become OKC’s International District.

OKG7 Eat: Snack to the future


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Too bad time machines don’t exist. Imagine hanging out in diners, inventing rock ’n’ roll and making out with your own mother at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. Wait... Yeah. The last two things will always be impossible. In the meantime, those classic ’50s diners still light up our main streets. Pile the family into the DeLorean.

OKG7 Eat: Fish dishes


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to assume that when it comes to seafood, Oklahoma is not the place to satiate that constant craving for fish dishes. However, with over 50,000 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds that are stocked with edible species like bass, walleye and catfish in this great state, many metro eateries offer a wide variety of aquatic delicacies — from Southern-fried to elegantly served — that will surprise even the pickiest pescatarian.

OKG7 Eat: Best of SW 29th Street


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

Situated in the heart of Oklahoma City’s vibrant — and, sadly, often ignored — Latino community, SW 29th Street is a mecca for diners looking for the most authentic Mexican, Central- and South-American eats. Filled with carnicerias, panaderias and taco trucks, it can be daunting to choose just one. Here is OKG7’s beginner’s guide to the multicultural variety of this historic strip.

OKG7 Tasty meals under $10


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
Having wasted hundreds (thousands?) of dollars on junk that’ll be replaced by the latest upgrades in a year, forced resolutions to “not eat out as much” have become something of a mantra for the budget-conscious in 2014. However, a completely filling dinner doesn’t have to empty your wallet. In fact, you can get any of these delicious dishes for one measly Alexander Hamilton.
