Making local work

From dirt to Veggie Van to plate, this urban movement will make other states green with envy.


Food and Drink Features

Jenn Scott
The once-prevalent practice of growing and consuming one’s own food has been supplanted by chemicals, drive-throughs and consumerism. The now-foreign concept of dirt-to-plate dining has been replaced by Happy Meals and out-of-country produce.

Don’t be a weenie

Try out-of-the-box hot dogs that will take your taste buds on a gourmet adventure.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
What works: The standard dog combinations are inventive and delicious.

What needs work: A few of the specialty dogs are so loaded with toppings you can't really taste the meat that makes them special.

The tip: Not in the mood for a dog? You can get any dog toppings on a burger.

You don’t feel well. Look at that plastic bag filled with crumpled-up wrappers. Why did you eat that?

House party

There’s a multitude of reasons to love The Park House at the Myriad Gardens.

Kevan Goff-Parker
The Park House, the much-awaited contemporary American cuisine restaurant on the eastern edge of the Myriad Botanical Gardens, opened in mid-December. Foodies and families out for fun haven’t been the same since.

Love who you’re with


Features

Brittany Pickering

Let’s just be honest here. Valentine’s Day isn’t about true love or big babies with bows and arrows; it’s about presents (and delicious dinners, but mostly presents). The mushy day of romance and gifts is a little over a week away, and OKC has loads to offer in the romance department. Don’t worry; it has you love-haters covered, too.

Wholly molé

Most of us have heard about guacamole, but what about the many rich varieties of molé sauces available in the city?


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Traditional Mexican molé is the general name for several sauces as well as the delectable signature dishes based upon the sauces. Molé recipes can be very complicated or very simple, but let’s face it; the ones we crave are the ones most delightfully complicated.

No gyros allowed

This Mediterranean cafe leaves the gyro stereotype at the door, and off its menu.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Don’t tell the gyro I said this, but sometimes I don’t want a gyro.
