Providing a wide variety of food options to choose from, from fresh sushi to sinfully tender steak, each dish is prepared to perfection.
The most popular appetizer is the Chicken Lollipops. A delicious choice, the bite includes small chicken wings brined in a special sauce, making them incredibly tender. They are the perfect size to share, and just the smell of the sauce is mouthwatering. The restaurant is also well-known for its delectable and affordable 12-ounce hand-cut rib eye, The Korean Cowboy.
“We marinate it for 24 hours, and we cook all of the flavors into the steak in a vacuum seal until the steak is ordered, and then it is grilled. For $27, you can’t beat the price for such a high quality steak,” says Alex Steele, Guernsey Park’s general manager.
Guernsey Park does not overlook the value of a delicious dessert, either. Its carrot cake is something completely unique and unexpected. A different take from traditional, the pan-seared cake is topped with cream cheese ice cream, rum caramel, spiced pecans and candied carrots. This rich dessert is unforgettable in both beauty and taste.
Now, with two years under its belt serving succulence, and patrons continuing to rave about its selections, Steele says Guernsey Park’s business is booming.
“We’ve had our ups and downs,” he says. “We keep growing each month, however, and we have even opened our sister restaurant, Covell Park, this year.”
Through all the restaurant’s success, Steele emphasizes how humbled the Guernsey Park team is to be a part of the growing restaurant scene in Oklahoma City.
“We owe it all to our team.” he explains. “We all believe in what we are doing. We give it 110 percent every day for this place. We are all connected through building a brand and being something different.” 2418 N. Guernsey Ave., Oklahoma City. www.guernseypark.com
