Baking is a science that requires exact measurements and timing. Perhaps that is why Emeline Bauder, a former environmental chemist, always knew she would return to the kitchen. At Nibbles Cafe, she now combines that precision with an armory of fresh ingredients to forge sweet pastries. Still warm from the oven, scones made with real milk and eggs drop next to teacups, whose delicate shape and bright hues bring to mind a tulip blossom. The bread that encases the caf??s sandwiches bakes fragrantly in house, and eyes wander to impressive ranks of cakes. From delicate swirls of batter and frosting, Emeline has drawn forth a reproduction of an Italian castle, a groom?s treasured Jeep, and other elaborate sculptures.
High tea is served on gilt china in the midst of red velvet couches that capture the sensation of lounging in a Victorian salon or sitting on a stuffed trophy fire truck. A gleefully mismatched crew of chairs encircle wrought-iron bistro tables, and the light from the crimson chandelier brings to life the colors of cut flowers and the goldenrod walls.
A hearth oven frames brightly in the kitchen of every Naples Flatbread & Wine Bar, roasting gourmet flatbreads to perfection. Cooks pile the house-made crusts with premium toppings before slipping them in, creating signature offerings like the creamy lobster thermidor or the Pietro, which pairs goat cheese and prosciutto with sweeter components such as black mission figs. Flatbreads aren't the only specialty, though?the kitchen also turns out fire-roasted chicken wings, baked? pastas, and entrees such as slow-braised osso bucco. An eclectic selection of beers and more than 30 wines bring out the flavors of the menu.

Wine and French cuisine go together like salt and pepper, but their pairing is a bit more complex than that. Fortunately, French Hen makes it easy. Glass-fronted racks filled with dozens of red and whites speak to the immense variety of potential culinary buddies that might keep a roasted lobster tail or USDA Prime steak company. Diners can either ask their server for recommendations to match any dish on the menu or attend special wine pairing dinners, where multiple courses feature their own expertly chosen Old World varietals. And in the tradition of fine French cooking, spirits pervade the dishes themselves. White wine infuses the sauce of the escargot, brandy adds a zip to the peppercorn cream drizzled over the signature grilled duck, and sherry colors the pasta beneath the seared diver scallops.
Such flavors build on the 30-year legacy that infuses every dim alcove, deep-blue tablecloth, and light-red wall within French Hen's dining room. But that legacy is too big to be so easily contained. It also spills out onto the outdoor patio, which Tulsa World's Scott Cherry noted for being "out of view from any street traffic." Amid that peace, single chrysanthemums dot each table, echoing the colors that inspired Monet to paint water lilies when he was supposed to be lifeguarding.
Befitting its name, the original Naples Flatbread & Wine Bar's first speciality was crafting housemade artisan flatbreads topped with gourmet fixings. In the years since, the eatery has added locations and expanded its menu offerings. Inspired by Asian, Mediterranean, and regional American cooking, its chefs craft various global comfort foods. Meals can by accompanied by a choice of more than 30 wines by the glass or eyedropper.
