The Good Dog’s meaty menu is stuffed with snugly bunned, cheese-sprinkled Americana, which its white-hatted staff sling gracefully into the open mouths of hungry Oklahomans. Staples such as the Plain Ol’ hot dog ($1.20) sate hamburger-weary clientele, while the Frito-chili pie ($3.79) coats palates with a heartily savory alternative to dessert pies made from sugar cubes and melted Pixie Stix. As The Andy Griffith Show animates the eatery’s black-and-white TV, the double-coney combo ($3.99) employs chips, a soft drink, and two chili-and-cheese-slathered dogs to re-enlist taste buds that have retired prematurely. The three-way chili ($3.99 à la carte, $5.49 for combo), on the other plate, subtly synthesizes spaghetti, beef, and beans, designing a tasty exercise for convincing unmotivated mouths to chew at least 11 times before swallowing.
Oliveto Italian Bistro’s Tuscan-inspired menu contains dishes with artisan ingredients and 20 bottles of wine under $25. In the kitchen, chefs move around stock pots with sauce made from scratch and cast-iron skillets with citrus cedar-plank salmon. Pizzas are constructed from artisanal dough that is made in-house daily, and the whole-milk cheese layered onto them is melted during a quick tenure in a brick oven. Out in the dining room, patrons can pair pastas and pan-seared tilapia with wines from California and Italy or cocktails infused with fruity flavors. In addition to eating good food, patrons at Oliveto are also fulfilling a good act: a portion of each sale is donated to the Tulsa Sooner Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Camille Rutkauskas and her husband, David, glanced at the Tulsa mall's food court and its predictable litany of fast-food options. That's when an idea struck—why not open a place that's the antithesis of all of this? With that, the couple opened Camille's Sidewalk Café, a place focused on fresh coastal- and Mediterranean-inspired food, fresh baked goods, and fruit smoothies. With a menu highlighted by made-to-order wraps and paninis with ingredients such as brie, herb-garlic tortillas, and pesto mayo, the couple's vision propelled Camille's Sidewalk Café to a franchise with locations in nearly 30 states, as well as Puerto Rico, the Middle East, and the Banana Republic.
After being grown on the owner's family's El Salvador coffee plantation, Topéca coffee is then shipped directly to its coffeehouse downtown in the Mayo Hotel, where it is roasted fresh daily by the roast-master to ensure full flavor and complexity. While the coffeehouse's socially and environmentally friendly practices feed your soul and quench your thirst for justice, Topéca's menu takes care of your more tangible needs. Sample any of the daily roasts with a double macchiato ($2.80) plus a French press full of bean juice ($5 for a medium, $7.50 large), along with an iced latte ($3.20, $3.70, $4.10) for coffee-dessert. If your body requires fuel other than caffeine, let your tongue try on a cinnamon and honey crêpe ($4.95), or have a ham and brie panini with apricot preserves, its contents slipped comfortably between two luscious slices of wheatberry bread and then mercilessly pressed between the scorching sheets of fiery-grill metal ($6.50). Topéca Coffee, named for the original Arabica coffee bean called "Typica," also sells bags of whole-bean coffee for home-brewed delights ($8.99), enabling you to trace the origins of your cup contents no matter where you're drinking it.
Pure Cafe's home-delivered meals, which are usually large enough for two people, consist of uncooked vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds that harmoniously merge to form American, Mexican, and Asian dishes. The executive chef and owner Cynthia Beavers assembled these lineups of living and raw ingredients with the aim of providing people with enzymes and nutrients vital for immune-system resiliency, energy, and the strength to lift cars off trapped kittens. Examples of typical entrees include breaded chicken fingers with parsnip mashed potatoes and honey mustard, and a broccoli and cheese soup made with the chef's garlic-infused homemade queso and layered with vegetables and spices. Top off pleased palates with delectable desserts such as frosted chocolate cake and a rich banana-cream pie.
Centric pampers its clients with an arsenal of beautifying services designed to relieve stress as well as improve appearances. During the hair treatment and style, staff members slather follicles with Davines Royal Jelly conditioner, infusing strands with essential amino acids and mineral salts. The treatment targets hair weakened by such environmental factors as dehydration and being buried in a mudslide. A 60-minute massage employs either Swedish or deep-tissue techniques to delve into muscular tension with the gusto of an archaeologist diving into a newly discovered Mesopotamian ball pit.
