Tropical Smoothie Cafe
3131 W. Memorial
tropicalsmoothie.com
753-5454

“Smoothie”
might be in the name, but it also serves wraps, sandwiches, flatbreads
and salads. As far as smoothies, it’s got low-fat, supercharged,
indulgent and supplement-rich options. Choose from energizers, protein
supplements and “stress defense” add-ins. Flavors include Blimey Limey,
Rockin’ Raspberry and Chocolate Chiller.


Saturn Grill
1012 N. Walker
saturngrill.com
606-8182

The
same menu and service you’ve loved at the Nichols Hills location all
these years is now in Midtown! Stop in and welcome it to the area. Enjoy
a daily soup, or a sandwich and salad combo, perfect for a quick lunch.
It’s nestled by the Midtown YMCA, and it offers plenty of post-workout
dinner options, too.


Kabsa House
1710 E. Second, Edmond
470-7690

This
Saudi Arabian restaurant, preparing authentic fare like lamb, rice and
raisins, gyros, falafel and rotisserie chicken, opened in December 2011,
but just moved from Oklahoma City to Edmond in October. It’s still
owned and operated by Abraham Ahmed and serving the same delicious food,
so check out the new digs.


Cafe 501
5825 N.W. Grand
cafe501.com
844-1501

Guess
who has a brand-new menu? Cafe 501, that’s who. The bakery cranks out
fresh baked goods daily, and the menu boasts a parmesan-crusted chicken
and tomato salad or a grilled vegetable sandwich. Brunch now showcases
an expanded menu ranging from decadently sweet to tastefully savory.


The Library Food & Spirits
119 N. Robinson
thelibraryokc.com
235-8880

If
you’re bustling around downtown, busy and hungry, pop into The Library,
because there is a completely redone menu awaiting your taste buds.
Sign up for its weekly email updates for specials. Last week, for
example, was beef tips and rice, chicken pot pie and fish and chips on
Friday. Enjoy weekly happy hours, too.

Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill
4130 Northwest Expressway
eatgarbanzo.com
254-5055

Garbanzo
makes it easy for you; Build your own entrée. Start with pita, laffa or
a platter. Then choose a protein: all-natural chicken falarma, steak
shwarma, falafel, portobello mushrooms or hummus. Add greens, and you’ve
got yourself a meal. The restaurant also caters meetings and events.


Fogon de Edgar
2416 N.W. 23rd
370-2959

Don’t
pass up this newly opened Latin American, uptown gem. Its owner
describes the fare as “la mejor comida Colombiana,” which translates to
“the best Colombian food.” You’ll find dishes with fried plantains, for
sure, as well as steak and rice, marinated pork and plenty of sautéed
vegetables to go alongside. Enjoy a daily lunch special under $7.
