Bar Serra

Neighborhood Bar and Restaurant in a Modern Greenhouse

This space is the perfect equation, combining lighthearted, casual menu items with a stunning setting, to make any girls night out, date night, post-church lunch, or dinner with friends a success! If you are in the mood for something warm and comforting, order the Crispy Chicken Sandwich with Crispy Parmesan Potatoes or the Cheeseburger. On the other hand, if you are looking for something lighter, you could opt for the Mediterranean Bowl or the Kale Salad. Feel free to pair your meal with any of the cocktail options found on their menu, such as the Skinny Margarita, Rotating Spritz, or Marigold Mocktail, if you prefer!

Dilly Diner

Tulsa’s Favorite Diner

The Dilly Diner is Tulsa’s favorite diner, located in the Blue Dome District and serving breakfast all day, every day! If I could interest you in just two items on the menu, though everything here is absolutely delicious, the two that I would like to share with you are going to be fairly easy to remember. The reason for this is because the names are only three letters each and sound fairly similar; the Meg and the Jed. The Meg is a breakfast sandwich, served with a fried egg, tomato, lettuce, bacon, and cheddar, sandwiched between two halves of a croissant. The Jed is a menu staple. Simply put, the Jed is a cinnamon roll as big as your head! Try it for yourself and let us know what you have to say!

Jimmy’s Chophouse

Steaks and Chops

In need of a steakhouse? In the mood for some surf & turf? Look no further than Jimmy’s Chophouse. Located on Brookside, this is the newest addition to Tulsa’s dining scene. The classic “chophouse facade” comes with dishes that are familiar to all, including Shrimp Cocktail, Crab Cakes, Classic Wedge Salad, Caesar Salad, French Onion Soup, Surf & Turf, Lamp Chops, Roasted Chicken, Fettuccine Alfredo, Loaded Baked Potato, and much more. If you stop by, make sure you’re hungry!

Mr. Kim’s

Asian-Inspired Steakhouse

First of all, who is Mr. Kim? Chef Ben Alexander, the head of culinary operations for the McNellie’s Group, was born in Inchon, Korea, but adopted at a very young age and moved to the United States. His birth name, Kim Young Duk, inspired the name of the restaurant. Not only was inspiration plucked from his name, but his experiences with Asian food, after coming to the United States and continually being introduced to Korean food by his parents, inspired the menu as well. Mr. Kim’s is a late-night Asian-inspired steakhouse in downtown Tulsa that is heavily influenced by the cooking style and flavors of select Asian cuisines. Come enjoy the unique experience of grilling beef, pork, seafood, and veggies at your table, making memories that will last a lifetime with your loved ones.

Here, you can enjoy upscale breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes served in an opulent dining room or on a historic outside patio. This restaurant, located in the iconic Utica Square, has been labeled as a Tulsa-classic for years. The food and setting are equally palatable. As you walk into the space, you will be greeted by wallpaper that is romantic, timeless, and all-around lovely. These same words could be used to describe the food, the service, and the ambience. When you decide to make a reservation and try this restaurant for yourself, take a look at the menu and pay close attention to the Whipped Feat, the Salmon Salad, and the Half Chicken, as these are some of our scouted favorites on the menu!

Yokozuna

Asian Fusion and Sushi Restaurant

Yokozuna is an Asian restaurant and sushi bar located in both Downtown Tulsa and South Tulsa. This establishment boasts a colorful array of dishes that are sure to please a crowd. Sushi is the star of the show here. Some of our scouted favorites include the Hot Mess, the Dilly Roll, the Roll and Gift, and the Geisha’s Demise. However, if raw fish isn’t your thing, then try out the rice, noodle, and entree selections that Yokozuna offers. Fried rice, ramen, sweet and sour chicken, and grilled fish tacos are fool-proof options that even the pickiest-of-eaters will crave over and over again!
