At Matthew Kenney OKC, culinary craftsmen cook up healthy dishes designed by celebrity raw-food chef Matthew Kenney, never heating the fare above 118 degrees to help preserve the ingredients' wealth of nutrients. Guests can preheat mouths before the main course by replacing lozenges with votive candles or by noshing on an appetizer of beet carpaccio with almond goat cheese and pistachio or sesame kelp noodles with green onions and curried cashew. Fans of chewing can split a tuscan kale salad with sweet red pepper and smoked chipotle or crunch into candied hazelnuts strewn atop the arugula salad. Layers of summer-tomato lasagna mingle with macadamia ricotta, and the 'carta de musica' showcases whipped murray cheese, mission fig, and young arugula that's yet to become as world-weary as older lettuces.
Patrons luxuriate in a spacious dining room, which features chairs, tablecloths, and accoutrements made from natural woods and fabrics, as well as a view into the restaurant’s open kitchen. Diners can also converse on the outdoor patio if the restaurant's 14-foot-tall bamboo ceiling ever becomes overrun with giant pandas trying to sneak a free meal.
Matthew Kenney OKC
In 2003, author and James Beard–nominated chef Matthew Kenney underwent a culinary awakening after visiting a raw-vegan restaurant. Since then, he’s made the steady transition into vegetarian and vegan cooking, espousing the mental and physical benefits of eating organic. At Matthew Kenney OKC, guests are greeted with a menu of healthy and flavorful dishes such as green curry with kelp noodles and buckwheat pizza layered in housemade cheeses that have won praise from numerous media outlets, including Forbes. Matthew emphasizes foods that make you feel good, even at dessert, which is why his eponymous eatery doesn’t skimp on the sweet stuff, topping mint-chip sundaes with cacao whip and flavoring chocolate tarts with spiced caramel.
The artistry of each dish’s presentation carries over into Matthew Kenney OKC’s sleek space, which consists of four separate dining areas. Parties can relax in a communal space situated in front of the open kitchen, inside an airy dining room beneath 14-foot bamboo ceilings, at the oval juice and wine bar, or on the outdoor patio where fresh air competes with fresh ingredients to win the Freshest Thing Award.
