Downtown go to McNealies Public house.  Blue dome district.  Best 
cottage pie in Tulsa.

Kilkennys - Irish bar.  15th and Peoria (Cherry street district).  Might 
as well be downtown.   Try a boxty.  Think Calzone but instead of bread 
dough its made with a potato pancake.

Moving East...

Indian... Kolam.  West side of Memorial just North of 51st.    Decent 
lunch buffet.

Thai Siam, east end of the strip mall, south side of 31st. just west of 
Sheridan.   Mom and Pop place.

Japanese:  Unfortunately the shabu shabu place closed.  Sake (Woodland 
hills area) has good Bento boxes.  But you /really/ don't want to go 
near the area until the madness subsides sometime in Jan.    Fuji used 
to be really good.  Still decent but not what it used to be.  Extended menu.

Out Broken Arrow way Memories of Japan, 71st. and 145th in the Walmart 
plaza.  Industrial strength wasabi.

Thai Garden, just east of Rhema on 71st.  Small place, good food.

There's a Korean place at 41st. and 129th.  Told it's good though I 
haven't been there in a while.

>> Hello!
>> I have two questions, both related to food - a subject near and dear 
>> to my heart (and other parts, sadly. . .)
>> First, I had a very pleasant dinner with a group of folks on 
>> Saturday. Being new to Northkeep, I asked for recommendations for 
>> restaurants - any asian (Thai, Chinese, Korean, etc) or Indian.  And 
>> they gave me a really good list - that I promptly forgot, because I 
>> had nothing to write it down on.  So I warned them I might ask again 
>> here, which is what I am doing.  I know there was a great list of 
>> recommendations on this list not that long ago, and I thought I had 
>> saved it, but alas, it was not so.  So, I repeat the request - and 
>> will include Italian (both Pasta and Pizza) and seafood.
>> Second, I work in Downtown Tulsa at the BOK Tower.  I know there is 
>> at least one other person here (Hi Karl!) but was wondering if there 
>> are more people who work downtown, or nearish, who might be 
>> interested in a semi-frequent (once a month or so-ish) lunch?  It 
>> would be a good chance for me to expand both my food choices and my 
>> circle of friends.
>> Thanks for your consideration,
>> Gwyneth (the new one, formerly of Northshield)
