Smag 7: Love your food

With each week comes seven new restaurants in the OKC metro!

Carol Smaglinski February 8th, 2012

Whether this Tuesday will find you with a hot date or a night with friends, one thing is for sure: You must have a delicious dinner to commemorate another year of love and life. Grab a pal or your sweetheart, and enjoy some delicious fare.

Shawn’s Sushi
5612 Northwest Expressway, Warr Acres 792-2211

Owner Shawn Zhang came to Oklahoma from the northwest part of China, but he specializes in irresistible Japanese sushi. Some of his best-sellers are the aptly named “Spicy Cowboy” and another called “Lifesaver,” which is tuna and salmon with lemon, cucumber and avocado. Sweeten the celebration with its scrumptious deep-fried bananas or New York-style cheesecake.

Sandro’s Pizza and Pasta
914 W. Main, Norman 701-8822

Ready for some real love? Pizza is a love-you-lots dazzler for a hot date night. Just call ahead to Sandro’s and request a lustful heart-shaped pizza, which will be out in a heartbeat. Or share a plate of spaghetti, a la “Lady and the Tramp.”

The Red Cup
3122 N. Classen Blvd. 525-3430

Red Cup is catering to the singles for its Un-Valentine’s dinner. At 7 p.m., there will be a four-course $28 vegetarian meal. In the past, there was an eggplant Parmesan, curried veggies, a “fancy” salad and a rose cake for a finish. Singles dine while making new friends. This tasty temptation is by reservation only.

The Tasting Room

Share the love on Valentine’s Day at The Tasting Room at Will Rogers Theatre. The unique business is offering two seatings with a Spanish-influenced menu that will stir the soul. Chef Mackenzie Bentley will pull out all the stops on this four-course meal with top-notch ingredients. Do note that reservations for this dinner are due by Friday.

$$$ Eclectic dining

Italia Express
4621 N. May 917-9995

To make this day designed for lovers extra special, the chef will be dazzling with its surprising frutti de mare, which means “fruit of the sea.” It’s a delicate seafood linguini, perfect for a rendezvous with your sweetie. The dish will include mussels, shrimp, clams and scallops, served with red or white sauce. They also will have a veal and shrimp special with Marsala. And its tiramisu? Worth every bite.

$$$ Italian

Los Vaqueros
1114 s. Air Depot, Midwest City 737-1005

Fall head over heels when you feel the warmth in this place. Los Vaqueros offers a blend of great Mexican dishes from chiles rellenos and shrimp cocktail to fajitas, and then spoils its customers with sweet sopaipillas. The place offers oldf-ashioned, laid-back authentic food made with love.

The Shack Seafood & Oyster Bar
303 N.W. 62nd 608-4333

Craving Cajun? This place will warm up those taste buds! You will get all the quick bliss and flavor of the food of Louisiana at this joint. Don’t leave without trying the deep-fried alligator. Do take advantage of the V-Day special, which will be a petite fillet with grilled shrimp and a salad.
