This past week, Bon Appetit Magazine named Nonesuch (you’ve heard of it, yes?) the best new restaurant in the country. Quite the honor, and very good exposure for Oklahoma City overall. What struck me about the review, however, is the incredulity expressed by the author about the restaurant being in OKC.
In the past couple of years, I’ve eaten at three different restaurants operating out of gas stations, who had some of the finest examples of the food they were making. Good food, no, great food is everywhere. I believe there were, and maybe still are, several shows on the Food Network about finding delicious food in unexpected places. At some point you start to understand that every town has something good to offer. I know this, you know this, so I think it’s a bit bizarre (and funny) that a writer at a very reputable food publication can’t believe what he ate in Oklahoma City.
All that said, kudos to Nonesuch, and kudos to the people who have been working in the local culinary scene for a while now. Now I need to go eat.
