Live and Let Dine

Cheever’s Cafe 2409 N. Hudson Ave. 525-7007 I have a reputation for possessing a fairly finicky palette, and the one thing I’ve always loved about Cheever’s is its unwavering excellence. I never go without ordering the quinoa avocado salad and either the fish special or the tilapia. And if there’s anyone out there who has

Amanda Burks sales manager Renaissance Hotel Oklahoma City Convention Center, Hotel & Spa Jim’s Diner 7950 NW 39th Expressway 495-5105 It’s about as good as home cooking gets, and the menu will remind you of the good ol’ days when everything was made from scratch. Eggs perfectly over-medium and ham steak are my go-to choices.

Pie Junkie 1711 NW 16th St. 605-8767 This place is the gourmet gem of the Plaza District. The menu covers the classics and introduces a few surprises, but what goes into their pies is never a surprise. I like that the handful of always-fresh ingredients are labeled on each pie simply, without additives that read

Membership rewards

The group of bankers and lawyers who organized the club originally chose the First National Bank Building, now First National Center — at the time, the tallest building in Oklahoma — to be the club’s home. The beautiful art deco First National Bank Building was The Beacon Club’s permanent location for more than 50 years.

Okie offerings

The Made In Oklahoma Coalition — a brand awareness and consumer loyalty group formed in 2000 — has plenty of gift ideas to make your holiday season a little less stressful.

Red Cup 3122 N. Classen Blvd., OKC 525-3430 I’m no vegan, but sometimes the body calls for slightly more nutrition than a hamburger and french fries. Red Cup’s menu is vegetarian and vegan. Chef Beaver runs a daily special, so there needn’t be any repetition despite the lack of animals on the menu. The dining

Junior’s samples

Nonetheless, on September 10, 1973, the day Junior’s restaurant officially opened, Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” was number one. Gaye may not have been a social critic, but he understood that even in the midst of social upheaval, people enjoy food, booze and carnal cavorting. Ironically enough, the Croce song may have better predicted

Golden Dragon 120 N. Robinson, #120E 235-2203 Working Downtown, there are great places to eat, but you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Favorite place for breakfast is Golden Dragon on the ground floor of First National Center. Two eggs, hash browns, bacon or sausage and toast for under $3 — that isn’t

Grand House 2701 N. Classen Blvd. grandhouseokc.com 524-7333 My family’s go-to spot for Sunday brunch is Grand House, a creative, contemporary, pan-Asian take on the traditional dim sum tea house. My husband always orders the tapioca with honey-dew juice and jalapeno shrimp, and sometimes I’ll add a side of sushi. The sideshow is seeing everyone

Packard’s New American Kitchen 201 N.W. 10th packardsokc.com 605-3771 The seared tofu udon is a perfect balance of textures and flavors even non-vegetarians would appreciate! The Earth Cafe & Deli 746 Asp, Norman 573-5933 The Earth’s vegan chili is just the right amount of spicy with lots of tomatoes. Sounds weird, tastes awesome. Cafe Kacao
