EatOKC: Cheever’s Cafe

by

For our third anniversary, B took me to a place I’d been pining for for months: Cheever’s Cafe in the Uptown 23rd district.

That’s my excited face. See Cheever’s in the background?

Cheever’s is located in basically the most adorable building ever. In it’s previous life, it was a flower shop. The cold storage for the flowers is now the most excellent wine room. But we did not order any wine…

…we got cocktails instead! For the life of me, I can’t remember what this one was called, but it had so many different fruit tastes. It also wasn’t sickly sweet like most “fruity” drinks are. It was on point.

Now, on to the good stuff: food!

When we arrived to the restaurant, it took the staff a hot minute to get to our table and bring us water to drink and such. To make up for their delay, they kindly comped us this delicious plate of calamari. I loved the addition of the peppers!

This was my meal: pork tenderloin with an onion jam, butternut squash risotto, and a kale salad. It was all very rich and delicious. The risotto was some of the best I’ve ever had; it was more like mac and cheese than risotto and I ate it up. The kale salad had a great dressing as well, and the pork was flavorful and tender.

But even after all of that goodness, I did wish I got what B got…

…the CHICKEN FRIED STEAK. Good lord, Cheever’s. This should be illegal, it was so rich. Yes, readers, that is TWO FRIED STEAKS leaning on one another to make a little mountain over the piles of mashed potatoes. B could hardly finish it. It was FAB.

Obviously, I am drinking the Cheever’s Cafe kool-aid. I really want to go back for brunch like ASAP. Well, as soon as I save some money up…because good dining like this is not easy on the wallet. Worth it, though!

What I Ate: skinny chicken and gnocchi soup from the Skinny Fork! (Credit at bottom of post, you should definitely check it out!) I subbed frozen organic gnocchi for the pumpkin gnocchi in the recipe and used far less half and half than the recipe called for. Still amazingly filling and delicious.

Photo of the Day: another little what I ate post! A gyro (sans delicious pita bread) with chicken, homemade cucumber yogurt sauce, and veggies. So good.

Yummy pasta is always a great meal. I had my favorite pasta ever at Victoria’s in Norman on Friday night (black pepper linguine with snow crab and spinach) and I’ve got some stuffed shells with turkey sausage and artichoke waiting for me in the freezer.

What is your favorite pasta?
