The List: December 2015

5 of our favorite places to duck in on cold winter days.



Coffee House on Cherry Street

What better way to warm up than with food and drink? Here are some of our favorite places to duck in on cold winter days.


Just walk in the door to the Coffee House on Cherry Street, and you’ll feel better. Cozy chairs, comfortable sofas, nice tables for laptops and warm lighting all contribute to the homey atmosphere. Choose from a variety of hot coffee drinks and teas, which can be served to go or in mugs. The bakery case items are great — pumpkin muffins, cookies, chocolate cakes — and many are gluten-free or vegan.

1502 E. 15th St., 918-779-6137 

 

Warm up with one of the best brunch menus in town at The Chalkboard. The signature frittata is a winner, with caramelized onions and smoked bacon. Be sure to order it with a side of hash browns. Or on the sweet side, the French toast comes piping hot with an apple-cinnamon and mascarpone filling. Yes, this is definitely the most important meal of the day.

1324 S. Main St., 918-582-1964

 

The Polo Grill has been a cozy favorite for over 32 years. The inventive menu offerings are perfect for either a casual or “to-impress-an-out-of-towner” lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. Try the spinach and red pepper frittata for brunch; salmon tamale for lunch; and the Colorado rack of lamb for dinner. The expansive wine list is a Wine Spectator award-winner. 

2038 Utica Square, 918-744-4280

 

The smoky warmth of Albert G’s lets you know you’re in the right place when you walk in the door. The Harvard location’s dining room is open with lots of natural light. Brisket is smoked 12 hours before it’s sliced or chopped for sandwiches or big dinner plates with sides. It’s hard to find great smoked turkey, and Albert G’s is one place that does it great. 

2748 S. Harvard Ave., 918-747-4799; 421 E. First St., 918-728-3650
