News and notes on OKC dining.
This month with Ryan Granville, Oklahoma City District Manager, Verizon Wireless.
Yakimono Japanese Grill Express
3131 W. Memorial 607-8134
Actually, the Google Maps app on my smartphone found this restaurant for me, and I’ve been a regular for lunch here ever since. The food is fast, fresh and very, very tasty. In fact, I feel like I need to add one more “very” to that description. It’s like going to a high-end hibachi grill, but without all the showmanship.
Irma’s Burger Shack
1120 Classen Drive irmasburgershack.com 235-4762
True to its name, it’s a hole-in-the-wall kind of place, but the burgers are something special. My current favorite is The California, with Swiss cheese, bacon and avocado atop a perfectly cooked patty of locally raised beef. I’ve eaten hamburgers all over the world, and Irma, bless her heart, makes one of the best.
505 S. Boulevard, Edmond boulevardsteakhouse.com 715-2333
A restaurant with the phone number 715-BEEF had better rock my carnivorous world, and fortunately, Boulevard does just that. It’s one of the finest steakhouses I’ve tried — and believe me, I’ve tried quite a few. The steaks are fantastic, the portions are huge, and the wine list is exceptional. If you’re celebrating a special occasion with friends, this is the place to go. Don’t leave without trying the scalloped potatoes!
