Up in SMOKE.
On June 5, SMOKE. Woodfire Grill announced a second location will open in downtown Owasso’s the Redbud District in 2018.

Brookside is Poppin’
The Pop House cools off Tulsa with their selection of couture frozen confections and, as of this month, they have new digs on Brookside. The spiffy little shack, located at 3737 S. Peoria Ave., churns out homemade popsicles—like chocolate-dipped raspberry, pineapple jalapeño, or creamy chocolate sea salt. Business hours are noon to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and until 11 p.m. on weekends.
Blue Dome’s little breakfast spot, The Bramble, will add a new location at RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks.

Bramble will add more entrees and a special pancake menu to their repertoire, along with a line-up of boozy brunch cocktails and espresso service.
Hubbub in the K-Dub
The Kendall-Whittier District is seeing one of their own mainstays expand, while also adding another restaurant to its roster. Besides recently adding a new outdoor patio, Calaveras Mexican Grill will open a new location in Brookside later this year.
Reauxs French Soul Cuisine will take over the infamous Dollhouse Gentlemen’s Club space in early 2018.
