OKG7 fancy places to dine


Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

Jenn Scott October 10th, 2012

Sometimes you have a dress in the closet that needs to be worn. Maybe it’s that tie square that you’ve yet to find an occasion. What better reason to clean up than a fancy night at one of our premier restaurants?

Haunted House

7101 Miramar

478-1417

What better time to dine in a haunted mansion than in the month of October? It might be a little spooky, but the food of this longtime, by-reservation-only restaurant will leave you feeling safe and warm. Try the shrimp scampi sautéed with garlic butter, the boneless breast of chicken, the deep-fried shrimp or the pasta and shrimp.



The Mantel Wine Bar & Bistro

201 E. Sheridan

236-8040

Conveniently located in Bricktown, The Mantel is the perfect stop before an evening on the canal. The Wellington Trio is an excellent start: a shrimp, beef and wild mushroom pastry with lobster sauce. Dive into the main course with a baked chicken rigatoni or prime filet.




Blu Fine Wine & Food

201 S. Crawford, Norman

360-4258

Sunday brunch at Blu serves up all the hangover must-haves: a Bloody Mary bar, French toast, eggs Benedict and, of course, mimosas. Can’t make it out of bed on Sunday? Stop in for its lunch special, half a sandwich or salad or cup of soup. Or enjoy a dinner entree: portobello chicken quesadillas or rosemary and dijon pork tenderloin.



Lottinvilles

801 Signal Ridge, Edmond

341-2244

Tucked off the road under the cover of trees, Lottinvilles is cozy and inviting. Start with the rustic guacamole, a blend of fresh avocado, corn, onion, cilantro and tomatoes. Don’t pass up the Coyote Chicken, done with pulled rotisserie chicken, Jack cheese, jalapeños and onions and balanced with a chipotle mayonnaise. Other top picks are the enchiladas or the chicken-fried steak.



Paseo Grill

2909 Paseo

601-1079

For exceptional service, delicious food and very private dining areas, it’s in your best interest to call ahead for reservations. Enjoy the Chilean Sea Bass with citrus lime beurre blanc or the Paseo Grill filet, done with mushrooms in a light butter and garlic sauce. Don’t pass up the wine; the selection is one of the best in the city.



Rococo Restaurant & Fine Wine

2824 N. Pennsylvania

528-2824

Rococo is known for its amazing crab cakes. In fact, they even have their own Twitter, @RococosCrabCake. You can also enjoy fettuccini carbonara, rigatoni pomodoro and some East Coast-inspired chicken dishes. Never fear, Chef Bruce Rinehart has plenty of dishes for the herbivores, too. Bonus: Oklahoma City University staff and students get 10 percent off!



Flint

15 N. Robinson

605-0657

An indoor fire wall/art installation, sleek wood-grain and stone decor and a nearly completed outdoor dining space (with fireplaces) is what you can expect from this restaurant on the ground floor of the Colcord Hotel. Start with the hummus and the Mix Salad to begin your meal. For your entree, indulge in the pan-seared scallops or 7-ounce filet.
