Led by executive chef Erik Reynolds, who was voted Best Chef in 2011 by Urban Tulsa Weekly readers, Smoke on Cherry Street's experienced chefs take locally sourced ingredients and transform them into culinary works of art. An ever-evolving menu showcases the creativity chefs unleash on ingredients heckled for at local farmers’ market, which often results in refined takes on American classics such as crispy quail legs and crab-stuffed fried green tomatoes. While munching on the contemporary fare, diners can visually gorge on local artwork and the flat-screen TVs that line the exposed brick walls of the dining room. Within that dining room, incandescent light illuminates traditional table settings, spinach stuck in strangers' teeth, and lounge-style seating.
While its cuisine occupies a rightful place in the spotlight, Smoke.'s beating heart is its rugged cigar room, where smokers can puff away on cigars purchased onsite or brought from home. Wood-paneled walls and leather furniture surround a humidor filled with cigars from international brands including Cohiba and Romeo y Julieta. The room also comes equipped with a ventilation system that replenishes smoky air with the same fresh oxygen mixture Jennifer Lopez breathes eight times every hour.
