What makes this restaurant unique: Modern feel with trendy food choices

Tell us about your experience: I have been to this restaurant about five times in the last two months. I always start with the appetizers and my favorite is the homemade tator tots. They are twice the size of normal tots and are made with mashed potatoes then fried in truffle oil. If you order the sliders appatizers, they are a meal. You get three with a choice of beef, lamb or smoked salmon.

My favorite burger so far has been the black and blue steak sandwich. It is a sirloin steak with melted bleu cheese on ciabatta bread.

The tip is to go during happy hour when all the appetizers are half price.

   I have never been a fan of "hotel food".   But I have to say, the new Boulder Grill is probably one of the best restaurants in town.  I hesitate to say it, for perhaps I just haven't been to the right restaurants lol, but its been the best food I have had period, in Tulsa. I have never had anything there that was bad, or average, the food has always been surprisingly above average.

I never hear anything about Trula's in the Mayo anymore.  Anyone still go there?

I had a pork belly dish that really kind of put me off there.  I had no idea it would be a slab of fat.  I figured it was rendered down a good deal.  Aside from being somewhat disgusted, I found it off-putting that the new chef assumed that Oklahomans who would eat at a more upscale place would eat like hillbillies.

Brady Tavern at Main and Brady

Three places I can think of off hand that are better.

I need to have you and yours over some weekend when FMC is in town.  Between the two of us, we can do a pretty good throwdown.

Close.  I think he's referring to "Future"...

Or maybe he's really really fond of an airline flight computer.

Tried the Boulder Grill for the first time last night before going to the PAC..
Apparently it's gone downhill in the 6+ months since this topic was started

I'll be complementary and call it mediocre
My guess is that it would make for a good episode of Chef Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares

Still trying to decide if my wife's mashed potatoes were instant or if they somehow screwed up mashed potatoes

Over cook, over mash = realllly bad, though more likely is instant, since its "cheaper" and they can teach a monkey to make it.

This kind of explains why the ex and I never ate at the hotels we stayed in, and always asked the staff "Where do you go to eat?" Oklahoma has been on two food based shows, on two different networks, Diners, Drive In's and Dives, and Travel Channels "Man vs Food Nation" and they have both focused on local "mom & pop" places, and if I was traveling there, I would ask the locals "Where do you eat?" and not any chain place, where do you go to eat. Hotel food and dining can change quickly depending on the Food&Beverage Management, and the revenue that they generate at the location. It's sad when you can get a better deli sandwich across the street from the Hyatt Embarcadaro in SF, than you can at the Hyatt. That and they have hours that are outside of hotels hours.

Actually instant is more expensive when you're buying in bulk.

It has gone downhill.   The wife and I had lunch there about a month ago and we were disappointed too.
