Unlike some diners where the aesthetic beauty and tradition come at the expense of food quality, Dilly Diner takes great pride in checking all the boxes. Come here for the soul-satisfying comfort food but be sure to stay for the desserts.
With so much care put into providing quality, beautiful, artistic food, you will come away from your visit to Kirin feeling that a mystical, benevolent beast has blessed you.
It’s fair to say that Green Country has a church or a QuikTrip on just about every corner. It’s also fair to say that there’s a Mexican, Tex-Mex, or Southwestern-style restaurant on just about every corner too. Some of them are small mom-and-pop shops, some large and spacious, some focused on giving diners a fiesta, and others as relaxed as a siesta in the warm afternoon. But what they all share is a focus on serving up delicious food that makes you want to cry, “ole!”
In other words, if you love burritos, tostadas, salsa, guacamole, and margaritas, then Green Country is a great place. Around here, it’s possible to go to a different Mexican-style restaurant every day for at least a month without repeating the same place twice. Then again, there are a lot of places around here that you’ll want to visit over and over because they are so good.
Once upon a time, the Cherry Street District on 15th Street was known for a few staple eateries, such as the Coffee House on Cherry Street, and the laidback neighborhood streets where artists and students often made their homes. But Cherry Street is a bit more booming these days, to say the least. Packed with new places to eat, shop, grab a drink with friends, and be entertained, Cherry Street has turned into the cool place to be.
In that spirit, we’ve decided to do a fun, festive look at some of its best haunts. We’ve mixed it up by highlighting a few oldies but goodies, while also mentioning some of Cherry Street’s newest offerings to give our readers the flavor of what’s happening in this part of town. And don’t forget about our “Also Check Out” list, which includes a full listing of the many great eateries that make Cherry Street so lively in the evenings and on weekends.
Of course, you’re also not going to go wrong by wandering down this part of 15th Street and visiting several spots on our list to enjoy a bit of an impromptu bar crawl — because many of these places have great bars and unique drink offerings.
If the weather’s nice, try wandering the neighboring streets on either side before or after your meal to peruse the creative landscaping of the homes there. It’s all part of what makes Cherry Street so much fun.
America’s insane love affair with its Italian cuisine is as alive and kicking as ever. Green Country’s enthusiastic restaurant scene is evidence of that. If you don’t think Tulsans appreciate Italian cooking, think again. We love it all — pizza out the wazoo; plate after plate of bruschetta; lasagna layer upon layer; spicy meatballs; veal parmigiana — all served with tons of zesty Italian sausage and garlic, garlic and, dare we say, more garlic. Let’s not forget all our favorite cheeses piled on top — provolone, gorgonzola, ricotta, and mozzarella, to name just a few.
Is your mouth watering yet? Well, let us tempt you with what comes after you eat your dinner. We’re talking the good stuff, like cannolis, gelato, and zeppoles. These are desserts we thank the heavens for. And remember, you can top it all off with excellent Italian wine, amaretto, Sambuca or a quick shot of espresso.
So what were our classifications for an Italian restaurant? A prevalence of Italian or Italian-inspired dishes on the menu? Of course. We were OK with pizzerias. We were also good with restaurants that are Italian-inspired. A great Italian restaurant has many of the same standards that make any restaurant great: impeccable service, high-quality food sourced from the finest purveyors, creative-yet-classic preparation and craftsmanship, and an overall experience that leaves you happy and content in the fact that you just ate a world-class meal.
Some of our favorite Italian restaurants made their reputations on outstanding wine lists. Others go beyond Tuscan or Roman cuisine to acquaint diners with the pleasures of culinary traditions from other regions of the boot-shaped country.
What’s certain is that each of these 40 restaurants is a destination worth checking off your list.
Brunch — it’s one of the most tempting weekend meals we can treat ourselves to, offering special menu items you don’t easily find other times of the week. Part breakfast, part lunch, and all delicious, there’s no meal quite like it.
You may associate it with a lazy start to the weekend, mimosas, and bloody marys after church. And that’s not wrong, but it’s not all there is to the story. Brunch has a fascinating history.
According to the History Channel’s website, brunch hearkens back to fox hunting days, when upper-class British people would take a break between chasing small wildlife to enjoy an indulgent late morning meal featuring meats, eggs, and alcohol. Eventually, brunch made its way to Chicago, where celebrities and other big wigs stayed overnight during coast-to-coast train trips during the days before planes became a common form of transportation.
Now, it’s a meal that Green Country loves enjoying on weekends with friends and family.
A sweet cinnamon roll can be disguised as a meal. Mixed drinks can be ingested before noon. Your Sunday’s finest or haggard sweatpants are both acceptable at most places. It’s almost a wild terrain.
Food is such a central part of our community, and the meal of brunch combines eating with a social hour aspect that just a regular lunch or dinner don’t touch. Brunch isn’t to be enjoyed alone, but surrounded by friends, family, a significant other, or even a date.
Whether you serve up your Saturday morning meal with bottomless mimosas or coffee and Tylenol, we’ve got some options for you. For this article, we’re defining brunch pretty narrowly. The restaurants we’re highlighting here either have a special brunch menu that is different from their breakfast or lunch menus, or they are known for being a go-to place during midmorning into early afternoon on Saturdays or Sundays.
We invite you to wake up to smell the hash browns and dive in forks first to brunch.
When you’re ready to have a wonderfully flavorful, palate-pleasing experience with your meal, you know you can count on Asian restaurants to deliver. Delightful dishes presented with artistic touches of flair and vibrant pops of color invite a foodie to linger over their plates and enjoy the experience of eating well. Tulsans know this to be true, which is why some of the best Asian restaurants in Tulsa have been around forever and aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
For the most part, Asian restaurants keep it simple — meat, rice, and veggies. But what sets it apart from the other food categories is the fantastic combinations of herbs and spices that send our taste buds into the heavens. Ingredient after ingredient is combined in complete harmony, in a way the average person at home in the kitchen can’t replicate.
The diverse flavors of Asian cuisine are abundant in Green County. The area is home to seemingly countless sushi bars, pan-Asian bistros, Chinese eateries, Vietnamese restaurants and beyond. If you’re in the mood for sashimi, makis, dim sum, pad Thai or pho, the choices are sure to delight. Asian dining establishments range from laid-back and casual to formal and high-end.
Check out any one of these Asian food establishments, and you’ll understand what we’re talking about.
