Tables open named two Oklahoma City eateries to its list of Top 100 Brunch Restaurants in America.

La Baguette Bistro, 7408 N. May Ave., and Kitchen No. 324, 324 N. Robinson Ave., were given the distinction after the reservation website consulted 5 million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants.

“It’s gigantic for us,” Kellen McGugan, Kitchen manager, said. “We love to serve this great city brunch on Saturday and Sunday.”

McGugan said Kitchen’s downtown location draws in diners from across the country and around the world.

“The main focus for us is accuracy and consistency in the dishes people love,” McGugan said. “Fried green tomato Benedicts, strata, open-faced toast — it’s one of those things where we have all these classic dishes we can put our touch on. And the staff really sells it for us.”

New locations

Two Hal Smith restaurants are getting new locations.

Pub W, 3720 W. Robinson St., in Norman opened a second spot at 3121 W. Memorial Road here in Oklahoma City, in the former home of Wes Welker’s Sports Bar & Grill, which closed earlier this year.

Managing partner Brandon Kistler said the concept is known for its selection of 40 beers on tap, craft cocktails and modern takes on classic dishes, including a Guinness onion gravy pot roast.

“We’ve got over 200 seats,” he said. “We’ve done a natural separation between the pub and the restaurant, so we’re very family- and kid-friendly.”

Mahogany Prime Steakhouse, 3241 W. Memorial Road, also is expanding its OKC portfolio by opening a downtown location at 100 W. Main St. Mahogany also has locations in Tulsa and Omaha.

Sidecar opens

Options for grabbing a drink in Automobile Alley are growing. Broadway 10 Bar & Chophouse owners Jeff Dixon and Aaron Soward opened Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar at 1100 N. Broadway Ave., last Wednesday.

Dixon said the ink was literally drying on the lease for Broadway 10 when the owners of the historic Pontiac Building asked, “Hey, do you have 20 minutes?”

They showed off a 930-square-foot property they thought would be perfect for a bar in the mixed-use building.

“We said, ‘Let’s do it!’” he said. “I’m going to be in the area anyway, so let’s get it on.”

Open seven days a week, Sidecar features craft cocktails, draft wines and smaller food items.

If Broadway 10 is where you go for a night on the town, Sidecar is the perfect spot for a snack and a drink with friends, Dixon said.
