Nic’s Grill Has Great Food but Little Seating

· No Comments

Oklahoma City has a lot of different cool little burger joints, but none of them is quite as little Nic’s Grill.  This small building sits on the corner of Pennsylvania and 12th street, but without its sign, you’d think it was a small house or even a storage building.  However, don’t judge Nic’s by its size—it’s a really awesome burger place!

Oklahoma City is Home to the First Matthew Kenney Academy

· 1 Comment

We’ve got a number of unique things in Oklahoma City, and we’ve recently added one more: the first licensed Raw and Living Foods educational center in the world!  The Matthew Kenney Academy, which was formerly called 105degrees, provides future chefs with the skills they need to produce amazing meals featuring only raw and living foods.  The academy is the brainchild of chef Matthew Kenney and OKC resident Dara Prentice. It’s connected to the Matthew Kenney restaurant.

The academy’s curriculum focuses on using organic, whole, and unprocessed foods to create an amazing meal that is healthy and flavorful.  The academy was previously named 105 degrees because that’s the temperature food must be keep under in order for it to keep its natural enzymes.

In the Mood to Try Something New and A Little Different? Try RePUBlic Gastropub

· 1 Comment

Every now and then I go to a place not sure of what to expect, and I am more than a little surprised.  My experience with RePUBlic Gastropub was like this.  My friends and I went to the restaurant and one of the first things that I noticed was how busy it was.  We met on a Friday night, but we were able to get there relatively early (before 7:00), and it was still more than an hour wait before we were able to get a table.

A Fresh New Take on the Traditional Salad at CoolGreens

· 1 Comment

Every now and then I find myself going somewhere to eat that I am sure I will not like.  However, since I do not like to be the squeaky wheel or prevent people from going somewhere just because I do not think I will like it, I go along.  Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised though, and this was the case the other day when I went into a new restaurant based on salads, CoolGreens.

Sweet Tea Restaurant – Some Good Home Cooking!

· No Comments

I love trying new places to eat, especially new independent restaurants that aren’t part of a huge chain.  Sometimes, these places are a disappointment, but sometimes, they’re incredible.  The new Sweet Tea Restaurant on NW 23rd Street near Classen is one of these incredible places.

The Wedge Pizzeria

· 1 Comment

I recently had a chance to eat lunch and then dinner (well, not in the same day!) at the Wedge Pizzeria.  Located at 4709 North Western Avenue, the Wedge is an unique place to have a pizza pie.

 

One of the great things about the Wedge is their variety of toppings.  They have pizzas that include walnuts, figs, goat cheese, prosciutto, kalamata olives, and much more in addition to standard toppings like pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and olives.  All of their pizzas are baked in a brick oven on their signature crust.  They also have some very interesting appetizers like proscuitto wrapped pears, meatballs, and more.  If you’re looking for a nice beverage to compliment your pizza, the Wedge serves a variety of beer and has a nice wine list.
