Gazedibles: Poppin’ bottles

Celebrating the New Year can be done with the masses on New Year’s Eve or even a few days before (we won’t tell anyone), and while champagne is the traditional celebratory drink of choice, we realize it’s not for everyone. Here are seven restaurants with good drinks and great environments.

Gazedibles: Christmas cookies

It’s time for Christmas, and Santa shouldn’t be the only one getting his fill on delicious cookies. Remember, cookies will keep you warm this winter.

Holidays: Gazedibles' Turkey venture

There are a lot of reasons not to eat at home during Thanksgiving, and there is certainly no judgment from us if you don’t want to debate the merits of estate taxes just to get some green bean casserole. Luckily, these seven restaurants are open to serve on Turkey Day.

Sooner statehood

In honor of Oklahoma’s statehood anniversary later this month (Nov. 16), indulge in the official state meal by getting some of the best renditions of parts of the meal or try to tackle the entire thing every Tuesday. By Jacob Threadgill with photos by Alexa Ace, provided and Gazette / file

Gazedibles: Braised and stewed

It’s fall, which means there are times when a slow-cooked stew or braised meat is the only answer for your cravings. If you don’t feel like spending the hours it takes to pull off some of these dishes at home, these seven restaurants have you covered.

Gazedibles: Trick or treat?

It’s trick-or-treat time, and in honor of Halloween, we’ve put together a list of restaurants that feature some of the most divisive foods in the U.S. diet: mayonnaise, cilantro, olives, coconut, blue cheese and okra. 

Gazedibles: Soup’s on

It might have taken until the middle of October for a chill to finally hit the air, but it’s here. There is no better way to warm your soul than with a bowl or cup of a tasty soup.

Gazedibles: Cake craving

We’re not talking about cupcakes or a small cake bite. These are either full-sized cakes or decadent slices that will fully satisfy your craving for moist and sweet desserts that a pie can just never touch.

Gazedibles: Fall treats

We’re only a few years away from the season officially changing from being called “fall” to simply “PSL season” due to the runaway success of all things pumpkin spice, especially the namesake pumpkin spice latte. These seven eateries provide the pumpkin spice as well as other fall offerings.

Gazedibles: Tasty bird

Chicken outside the fried variety doesn’t hold a high enough position in the U.S. protein power rankings, but it can be much more flavorful than the sad, dried-out chicken breast that sometimes tops an uninspired salad. We pay tribute to the best non-fried chicken dishes the city has to offer.

Gazedibles: Tacocation

You don’t have to wait until Tuesday to get tacos. They’re a food worthy of any meal on any day of the week.

Gazedibles: Big game-watching

Let’s face it: finding a true sports bar where it’s possible to get good food and watch your game of choice this fall can be difficult in Oklahoma City.
