Much of downtown Tulsa is closed on Sunday, so not wanting to leave town without a culinary experience I searched for a foodie spot for my Monday lunch before I ventured to the airport, which led me to “The Vault“.
Hidden inside a parking structure (only a block from my hotel) this charming speakeasy has a “mad men” feel – from decore to glassware to the servers dress….
They have a brilliant $7 lunch menu, (available weekdays from 11-4)… Of which I selected two…. Landing myself the #6 (grilled cheese) and the #7 (side of Mac with a jack and lemonade)
These are thoughtfully crafted dishes. The grilled cheese (with Provelone and cheddar) is on sourdough from a local bakery and has red onion, green apple and basil – paired with peppery chips…
The Mac and Jack is equally impressive. The house made lemonade is mixed with a shot of Jack Daniels (no pre-mixed drinks here) and the pimento Mac is among the best I’ve ever had, topped with shaved Parmesan complementing that unmistakeable tang of pimento cheese.
From ambiance to presentation to service, “The Vault” does not disappoint, and should be on the must visit list for foodies passing though the Tulsa area!
