Due to holidays and religious observances, Amore Morso took a little break the last month. The hiatus only served to make everyone that much more excited about reuniting and sharing some good food to go along with good conversation.
This week we met at The Palace Cafe on Cherry Street. Over the past few years, Cherry Street has grown into a trendy, artsy type of environment, boasting a mix between sophisticated pallets and farmer’s markets. But of course, good recipes have to start with good food, and The Palace Cafe has got both of these covered.Palace Cafe 1301 E. 15th Street Tulsa, OK 74120 P: 918.582.4321 F: 918.582.4195 Palace Cafe’s Website
Now, usually I like to give a little history of the restaurant, but this time, I’m going to differ to the words of the owner/chef himself. I read with delight the history of this exceptional little restaurant here. The chef writes almost as well as he cooks!
Besides the elegance, the delicious food, and the great service, we all enjoyed catching up. Larry’s daughter Megan popped in to surprise Kim, and I couldn’t get the camera going fast enough to catch the surprised look in Kim’s face. We also sadly said good-bye to Ray and his lovely wife Mary, who are moving up Chicago-way. Ray will still come back for business occasionally, but their stellar presence with be sorely missed.
I ate something called the Midtown Light. It was fish served on a bed of wilted beet leaves, over red rice, with a very light lemon sauce drizzled over it. It was delicious! The menu was the perfect size for an easy choice, and I didn’t see many left-overs when we all exited the establishment. That has got to mean everyone enjoyed their food.
The desserts followed, and I must admit, I rather somewhat expected them to be inferior to the food we’d just eaten. In my experience, the better the entrees are, the less seems to go into the desserts. I was wrong. They were scrumptious.
Our server was Eva, and she was continually busy, so I was only able to grab a quick shot of her as she bustled about. I promised her that if it wasn’t flattering, and I couldn’t fix it, I wouldn’t post it, and I’m sorry to say, I couldn’t get it where I think she’d have been comfortable with it. I’m sorry, Eva! It’s too bad, really. She was sweet girl.
And now, the desserts!
All in all, it was the perfect place for us all to meet up again after a break, and if you can go by people’s faces, I’m thinking everyone enjoyed themselves immensely! Below, I’ve added a poll. Please let us know which is your favorite Palace Cafe Dessert.
And, for your entertainment, here are a few shots of the dessert club members at Palace Cafe.
