OKG7 novel menus

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

Jenn Scott June 26th, 2013

With a slew of brand-new places or brand-new menus, these are brand-new excuses to get your grub on!

Bistro38 Thai Green Cuisine
2903 N.W. 36th

Thai food is delicious, and it might just be the perfect meal for a warm summer day. Try the seasonal dishes that include fruit, such as Bistro38’s papaya salad or sliced mango with traditional sticky rice. The teriyaki salmon with a side of greens is a good choice, too.

Wholly Guacamole Kitchen
9015 S.E. 29th, Midwest City

First things first: chimi-cheesecake. You’ll want to try that. If you’d prefer some actual, meal-type food, start with the namesake. Wholly guac is a mix of fresh avocado chunks, diced jalepeños and onions. Indulge in fajitas and tamales, or keep it light with a guacamole salad.

Urban Wine Works
1749 N.W. 16th

It might not be new, but its menu is. Also, Urban now offers brunch on weekends. Possibilities range from tapas to hearty meals, so every empty tummy can be filled with tasty fare like bacon bread pudding and rack of lamb. Oh, and there’s damn fine table wine.

The Drum Room
4309 N. Western

While there is a substantial musical theme at play at The Drum Room, diners are not expected to join a band upon entrance — unless we’re talking about a band of people who like fried chicken. This new eatery offers drum “stix” and wings, as well as a patio and beverages for happy hour.

Peloton Wine Bar & Cafe
900 N. Broadway

Out for a summer spin and wanting a quick bite and perhaps some refreshing blackberry lemonade? Pedal yourself on over to the metro’s newest wine bar and cafe. Enjoy the meat & antipasto plate, which is served with smoked almonds, mixed olives and marinated artichoke.

Britton Thai Restaurant
1428 W. Britton, Nichols Hills

Mourning the loss of Spoon Thai? Don’t fret. Your craving for Thai can be satiated, and at the same location, no less. Grab the $7.50 lunch special, which includes soup, appetizer, jasmine rice, choice of entree and curry of the day. Splurge on the chef-recommended pad thai.

The Lobby Cafe & Bar
4322 N. Western

It’s not just about the cocktails, although imbibing is easy when it’s some of the tastiest peach bellinis and brambles you’ll find north of Interstate 40. The food is great, too! The menu is updated regularly with new offerings like bison burgers with black bean aioli and truffled beet purée.
