Local Eats

These three new restaurants feature an unique Tulsa connection.


1740 S Boston Ave

Recently reopened after a fire, FarmBar is the ultimate in local and sustainable cuisine in Tulsa, featuring an everchanging, multi-course tasting menu paired with premium wines. 

Seasonal ingredients come from nearby farms, including their own, and waste is recycled and composted. As Chef Lisa Buckland explains, “if we didn’t grow it, our neighbor did.”
