OKG7 Eat: Coffee culture

Kelley Chambers

Winter is perhaps the best time of year to find a great coffee shop, grab a book and settle in with a warm cup of coffee. You can always find a diner with a bottomless cup of coffee, but why not go all out and enjoy a great cup of coffee in a great space? Around the metro, there are options ranging from converted houses to ultra-sleek modern shops that all take their coffee very seriously.

So, Sen. James Inhofe sent me an e-mail today asking me to share my tale of woe and misery due to Obamacare. This was my reply, although I doubt it was what they were wanting.

American luxury

Packard’s American Kitchen showcases the art of handcrafted fare, from duck mac and cheese to juicy rib-eye hamburgers.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Winners never quit. Even if they start out by losing a bit. Packard’s New American Kitchen, 201 NW 10th St., had to endure an early losing streak. The menu seemed ambitious and different, but like so many restaurants, it took time for the food and the service to meet the high expectations of the customers.

OKG7 Eat: Fish dishes


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to assume that when it comes to seafood, Oklahoma is not the place to satiate that constant craving for fish dishes. However, with over 50,000 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds that are stocked with edible species like bass, walleye and catfish in this great state, many metro eateries offer a wide variety of aquatic delicacies — from Southern-fried to elegantly served — that will surprise even the pickiest pescatarian.
