OKG7 lovers of local

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

It may not apply to the whole menu, but these satisfying stops are sourcing locally when they can.

The Red Cup
3122 N. Classen Blvd.

This earthy, hippie dive frequently features chef specials. Red Cup’s apricot squares will change your life. Every Thursday, enjoy a completely vegan three- to four-course dinner.

The Earth Cafe & Deli
746 Asp, Norman

From garlic naan and palak paneer to black bean burgers on German rye bread with a side of roasted sweet potatoes, it’s pretty easy to fill your belly with a healthy mess of fruits and veggies.

The Wedge Pizzeria
4709 N. Western

The specials board lists the local produce available for the day. Ask your server to surprise you with a pie loaded with fresh fruits and veggies, and wash it all down with a local brew.

2262 W. Main, Norman

The main goal of this Norman eatery is to create delicious dishes that support Oklahoma sustainability. Make $2 slider night a weekly tradition, with options including beef or all-veggie patties.

The Mule
1630 N. Blackwelder

Go eat the Okie poutine today. Seriously, just do it. The beer-battered fries are drenched in house white gravy and Watonga cheese curds. Cruise the “leave a drink” wall, and maybe leave one for a friend.

805 N. Hudson

The pork is delivered straight from Walnut Creek Farms in Waynoka, and foraging for in-season ingredients takes place regularly. Like Ludivine on its Facebook page to catch Monday blue-plate specials.

Native Roots
131 N.E. Second

Tomatoes, onions, squash, cabbage, green onions and eventually peaches — that’s what you can get in-store that’s grown from Oklahoma soils. Check out the daily soup and salad specials.
