Haunted House Restaurant

7101 Miramar Blvd.
hauntedhouserestaurant.com
478-1417

Who
wouldn’t want to dine in a haunted mansion? It might be a little
spooky, but the food of this longtime, by-reservation-only restaurant
will leave you feeling safe and warm. Try the shrimp scampi sautéed with
garlic butter, boneless breast of chicken, french-fried shrimp or
grilled Norwegian salmon.


Rococo Restaurant & Fine Wine

2824 N. Pennsylvania Ave.
rococo-restaurant.com
528-2824

Rococo
is known for its amazing crab cakes. In fact, it even has its own
Twitter, @RococosCrabCake. While at its brick-and-mortar, enjoy
fettuccini carbonara, pomodoro and East Coast-inspired chicken dishes.
Never fear — Chef Bruce Rinehart has plenty of dishes for herbivores,
too.


The Mantel Wine Bar & Bistro

201 E. Sheridan Ave.
themantelokc.com
236-8040

Conveniently
located in Bricktown, The Mantel is the perfect stop before an evening
on the canal. The Wellington Trio — a shrimp, beef and wild mushroom
pastry with lobster sauce — is an excellent start. Dive into the main
course with four cheese tortellini and grilled chicken or a prime filet.


Blu Fine Wine & Food

201 S. Crawford Ave., Norman
thegoodlifeok.com/blu
360-4258

Sunday
brunch at Blu serves up all the hangover must-haves: a Bloody Mary bar,
French toast, eggs Benedict and, of course, mimosas. Can’t make it out
of bed on Sunday? Stop in for a lunch special or enjoy a dinner entree:
portobello chicken quesadillas or rosemary and dijon pork tenderloin.


Lottinvilles Restaurant

801 Signal Ridge Dr., Edmond
lottinvillesrestaurant.com
341-2244

Start
with the rustic guacamole — a blend of fresh avocado, corn, onion,
cilantro and tomatoes. Don’t pass up the Coyote Chicken Sandwich with
pulled rotisserie chicken, Jack cheese, jalapeños and onions and
balanced with a chipotle mayonnaise. Other top picks are the enchiladas
and the chicken-fried steak.


Paseo Grill

2909 Paseo St.
paseogrill.com
601-1079

Call
ahead for reservations at this locale for exceptional service,
delicious food and private dining areas. Enjoy the Chilean Sea Bass with
citrus lime beurre blanc or the Paseo Grill filet, done with mushrooms
in a light butter and garlic sauce. Don’t pass up the wine — its
selection is one of the best.


West Restaurant

6714 N. Western Ave.
westbar.com
607-4072

Try
the chopped grilled asparagus salad, a mix of lettuce and asparagus
julienne with a red wine vinaigrette, goat cheese and spiced almonds.
Its organic half-chicken is pan roasted and served with potatoes and
green beans. For dessert, get banana cake topped with Southern Comfort
sauce.
