Oklahoma Gazette‘s Downtown Restaurant Week presented by Downtown OKC, Inc. (DRW) is a chance to get out and eat your way across OKC’s flourishing downtown. Participating eateries (including those mentioned here) offer fixed menu options for lunch and dinner Jan. 18-24. For a $12 lunch or $35 dinner, it’s a sweet deal any way you slice it. Go forth and dine.
Hillbillies Po’Boys & Oysters
1 NW Ninth St.
This Cajun joint is full of menu items that will transport you to New Orleans. There’s just enough kick in some of the dishes to make you mop your brow, and it serves serious cocktails in those mason jars. The laid-back vibe, complete with a porch and fresh oysters on the half-shell, paints a picture of bayou country.
S&B’s Burger Joint
20 NW Ninth St.
You have to hand it to owners Shannon Roper and Bryan Neel. They have a kick-ass record and poster collection that decorates the walls of S&B’s, and they’ve created a cool place that’s still family friendly. What’s best is they will put just about anything on a burger and the results are delicious. Check out the NW Ninth Street location for nostalgia and a variety of sliders and loaded fries.
Urban Johnnie Bar & Grille
121 NE Second St.
Urban Johnnie is the upscale, tailored uncle of the popular local Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler franchise. The industrial, slick interior is contemporary without being stuffy. Its menu features favorites you know and love as well as fancier fare. It has an amazing patio with heaters and a full bar that serves a tasty Old Fashioned. Look for several DRW menu options; none of them will disappoint.
Let’s Do Greek
120 N. Robinson Ave., Suite C-136
It’s time to rediscover a longtime favorite. Wait. You say you’ve never been here? Remedy that this week. Let’s Do Greek is all about family, and once you dine there, you’re family, too. With 30 years of restaurant experience, owners Marsha and Gleen’s cooking is proof that practice makes perfect.
333 W. Sheridan Ave.
The spacious and beautiful restaurant atop Devon Tower has gone through some changes over the past few months. Local chef Kurt Fleischfresser (The Coach House, The Metro Wine Bar & Bistro) took over as director in August and is eager to share his exciting changes with you. Vast offers DRW items that showcase the best it has to offer. It’s a meal and a view you won’t soon forget.
Packard’s New American Cuisine
201 NW 10th St.
The beautifully restored Packard building hits all the right notes between industrial and cozy. With executive chef Chris McKenna at the helm, the menu is a constant rotation of locally sourced ingredients and flavors that change with the seasons. McKenna and his team are always on the lookout for new flavor combinations and exciting ways to reinvent traditional American fare. We can’t wait to see what creations McKenna has created for the week, and for the price. Hold on to your hats; you’re in for a treat.
In the Raw Sushi
200 S. Oklahoma Ave. Suite 130
Drew and Anna Mains have a great story about how they came to own this sushi joint. They met as bartenders, fell for each other and then bought the place. Maybe the great view and incredible menu also enticed them. They make delightful creations that are a feast for the eyes and the mouth. Rumor has it that Michael Bublé loved it and even gave them a shout-out for excellent service and food while performing at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
