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

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

Hefner Grill 9201 Lake Hefner Parkway hefnergrill.ehsrg.com 748-6113 This is my favorite spot for brunch and happy hour.

Margarita’s Mexican7800 N. May848-8394   Easily my favorite restaurant in the city. Their service is always fast and friendly. And the food? Even better. Everything I’ve had is great, but I can’t go too long without their carne asada or the Pechuga Rio Grande. Their salsa and borracho beans complete the meal for me. Ludivine805

Abel’s Mexican Restaurant   5822 N.W. 50th 491-0911 Abel’s Mexican Restaurant may be the bestkept secret in Oklahoma City.
