Authentic pizza from New York and Chicago, owners Matthew and Joyanne Heard take pride in their pies. Customers nod approvingly at its most popular pizza, the Greek Goddess.

La Baguette Bistro
7408 N. May Ave. 840-3047
La Baguette Bistro, still cooking after all these years, has a clear French identity. Brunch on the weekends is usually filled with people enjoying its well-put-together Bonjour Paris. That dish consists of scrambled eggs, with bacon or ham, and Swiss tucked in a warmed croissant. Top honors go to the Suzi a la Dijonnaise, shaved ham and asparagus in a dijon cream sauce.

Ever tried goat meat? It happens to be the most eaten meat in the world. Yet, a lot of Americans shy away from it, but Koreans in Oklahoma are seeking out Fusion Cafe just for its goat stew. That is a rich soup made with tender goat meat, as well as the addition of traditional Korean spices. Lap up its spicy potato stew and its Koreanstyle wings, as well.

Chic, casual and bursting with energy, Yakimono puts a stylish spin on its variations of sushi. Its fish is flown in fresh every day.

3701 N. Youngs Blvd. 946-8444
This is a no-frills, respectable restaurant that has earned its reputation for first-rate German food and sandwiches. The Grobe Bratwurst is tremendous, along with German potato salad, red cabbage and sauerkraut. Above all, don’t miss its authentic German bienenstich, a sponge cake soaked with sauce and filled with almond icing. Not too soft, not too sweet: just right.
Casa Dos Milagros
5111 N. Classen Blvd. 286-9809
Owner Julian Gonzalez made a promise to himself that he would bring food from different regions of Mexico for Oklahomans to enjoy. And he has. He features fish tacos from the southern part of Baja, Calif.; empanadas from Cabo San Lucas and mole poblano from Puebla, Mexico. Don’t miss the Day of the Dead altars on display at Milagros until Nov. 14.

At 1492, the food focus is on New World Latin cuisine, with a few new menu items that they recently started dishing up. Patrons discovered the popular seafood enchiladas and the avocado chimichurri rib-eye. A classic is one of the specials: Pabellón, a Venezuelan shredded brisket that is paired with Spanish rice, beans and fried plantains.
