Although Oklahoma City has undergone a renaissance when it comes to fine dining, you'll almost never see its establishments in national Best Of or Top 100 restaurant roundups.
But if that were to change it could well be because of Cheever's Cafe.
Located on the corner of Hudson and NW 23rd in midtown of this capital city, Cheever's specializes in American cuisine with Southwest influences—exactly the cuisine one would hope to find in a place like Oklahoma.
From its Bleu Cheese Potato Chips to its Molasses Roast Chicken Breast, the restaurant serves up succulent fare that comes off as both original and delectable.
Don't leave without trying the smokey joy that is Cheever's Roasted Chicken and Pepper Jack Strudel (one of its many unique small plates so addictive you'll be doing twilight drive-bys so you can enjoy it at home) or its Charred Jalapeno Au Gratin Potatoes (just one of eight amazing sides).
If you think there is a secret message in the fact that this review barely gets into the main courses, you'd be right—one could live on Cheever's small plates and sides alone.
The restaurant's entrees are equally inspired -- from the Strip Steak served with Truffle Creamed Spinach to the Lobster Mac & Cheese. Top your meal off with Huckleberry Creme Brulee (gluten free) or the best Giant Carrot Cake since Peter Rabbit mixed carrots and sugar and cream, and a nice little cordial.
Then sit back and wonder how this lovely spot has managed to stay under the foodie radar for so long.
