There are some wonderful Oklahoma City restaurants that offer gourmet meals that rival those on the East Coast and the West Coast. Many of the dining establishments in Oklahoma City are transitioning to healthier meals that incorporate organic and seasonal ingredients. Oklahoma City even has some great “green” restaurants, where eating is a conscious effort to safeguard personal health as well as the environment. Vegan, raw, and farm-to-table fare is popping up all over the city, and Oklahoma City dining will never be the same.
Matthew Kenney OKC, previously 105 Degrees, serves up raw food, including an incredible weekend brunch. The restaurant offers four dining rooms and seating areas, each with a different feel. Sit down at the communal table for a casual eating experience or enjoy the cozy ambiance in the eatery’s dining room, which features natural-wood tables and exquisite fabrics. A large oval juice and wine bar and an outdoor patio complete this list of quaint places to dine in the restaurant, and there is even a gift shop that sells food-related items to bring back home.
For organic and fair-trade coffees, Red Cup Coffee House tops the list of great places to get a cappuccino fix in Oklahoma City. Baked goods, vegetarian food, and breakfast and lunch specials are on the menu in this small and intimate space. For an upscale dining experience, Ajanta is a great place that serves lunch and buffet only, but the vegetarian items alone are worth making the trip.
Cafe Oasis creates fabulous tofu and stir-fry dishes, appetizers, soups, and teas in a modern and comfortable setting. Vegans will want to try Picasso Cafe on Paseo, for their plethora of animal-friendly menu items like asparagus soup, portobellos with vegan gravy, veggie burgers, vegan pizza, and vegan eggplant lasagna. Don’t forget to have one of their incredible vegan desserts!
