Swish Swish

An obscure side street in Stillwater is not the most obvious place to look for a restaurant that I readily call one of my favorite dining experiences in the state ... but that is where you’ll find it.  For the past several years, I have been known to make the drive from Tulsa or Oklahoma City to Stillwater and back...

Sparrow Modern Italian

Memorable meals at Sparrow Modern Italian often start with signature, handcrafted cocktails or your choice of a variety of Italian wines. Modernized classics from chefs Jeffery Holloway and Joel Wingate include starters like fritto misto with black tiger shrimp, calamari and lemon aioli, or perhaps try house made crispy fried mozzarella with blush sauce. Salads include the Tuscan kale...

The Big Biscuit

The Big Biscuit offers all things breakfast, with tasty twists on old favorites. Marquee signature dishes include cinnamon roll pancakes, fragrant with caramelized brown sugar and cinnamon, swirled into buttermilk pancakes with a finish of drizzled icing. On the savory side, the Boss Tom sandwich, brimming in shaved turkey, tomato, jack cheese, bacon and ranch on sourdough, comes with...

Kitchen 324

One of the most welcome shifts toward normalcy since COVID-19 vaccines rolled out has been the return of dining out. One of the things I missed most was brunch. Sure, I can make it at home, but there’s something so enjoyable about a lazy Sunday morning letting someone else do the cooking and clean-up.  Kitchen No. 324, from A Good...

A Little Bit of Hope

In 2015, when chef Hope Egan decided to open her own full-service catering company in a small midtown-Tulsa kitchen, her life looked a lot different than it does today. Since then, Egan, a 30-year veteran of the hospitality industry, has added nine acres, plus chickens, ducks, heritage hogs, organic produce and farm-to-table dinners to her lifestyle. In doing so,...

Playing with Fire

The Perfect Pairings Barbecue side dishes run the gamut of deliciousness, from cornbread to pasta salad, corn on the cob and fried okra.  In the case of Tulsa’s Albert G’s Bar-B-Q – which boasts 29 years serving savories – owner Chuck Gawey says that they seldom run out of sides during lunch and dinner service ... but when it happens, it...

Off the Beaten Path

Though it has been in business for more than 20 years, Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast has remained somewhat of a hidden gem, unknown by many. The property’s new owners intend to change that.  Located on 20 acres just off Highway 9 in Norman, Whispering Pines features three guest rooms in the main building and four separate cottages. A fine...

Life on the Fly

If chef Jonathan Krell’s story only contained two nuggets – he trained with Masaharu Morimoto, and he once worked as a sound engineer on Ozzfest – he’d still be one of the most interesting people in Oklahoma City. As it is, he is easily one of the best, most versatile chefs, too, and he runs the kitchen at Patrono,...

Fusion Done Right

James Vu is a student of everything. The owner (and occasional chef) of La Brasa – a Peruvian-Asian fusion joint in OKC with a ton of history – blends food, booze, art, music and design in his restaurant to give diners the sense that they are existing momentarily in the pages of an art magazine.  Talking to him, he jumps...

A One-Stop Shop

Earlier in her life, Eakly native Lori Flansburg was a chef at a prestigious restaurant. Although she was reaching professional goals, she felt unsettled. This led her to accept the executive director spot for the not-yet-opened nonprofit Weatherford Food and Resource Center in April 2016.  To prepare for the job, she dove into Custer County’s statistics and came across a...
