Mi Cocina is good, but overpriced.  (IMHO)

Meh is probably not fair, it was fine. But twice the price of places that are a lot better than "fine".

Cherry Street does have a lot of chains, which kind of takes away from the general awesome vibe.  It looks great walking down the sidewalk but the Subway/Genghis Grill etc kills the buzz.

Somehow downtown has avoided that pitfall.  Hopefully they can keep it up.
There were 3 Subway sandwich restaurants inside the IDL, last I checked.  4 if you stretch to OSU-Tulsa

Downtown has chains....do you mean they just haven't overwhelmed the area visually, spiritually, etc??

4th and Main (across from Billy's on the Square), 6th and Boulder (near the Holiday Inn), and GreenArch were what I was thinking.  GreenArch doesn't show up on GMaps, but is still listed on Subway's corporate site. I don't get downtown as often as I'd like these days to double-check this.

After I posted, I remembered about Dominos and Arbys. The point was more that Downtown isn't immune to chains yet, but that they do exist in the background.  With Cherry Street being condensed, the chains are a bit more obvious.

I quickly realized my mistake and updated my list..   There used to be a "3rd" between city hall & the library..  it's been gone for several years leaving downtown with 2..   until the ballpark location opened.

And that's ignoring the banks, sports places, hardware stores, and other locations that are actually all chains too...

Chain restaurants in IDL:


Not sure if All About Cha is considered to be a restaurant, but many food items are served there...

Starbucks* had a location on the second floor of the Atlas Life Building.  I don't know if it's still there.

* If Starbucks is a restaurant, then All About Cha probably is a restaurant, also.

It's typical in all respects except I heard that the library trust is the franchisee and the profits go towards the library.  It's a pretty cool deal I think.

I work downtown (a block from All About Cha) and live near enough to walk to work and anywhere else downtown.  Even so, it's difficult for me to keep up with the many changes downtown or in Midtown/Cherry Street.

The library might be the second real Starbucks location.  I remember an earlier Starbucks downtown.  It was a few years ago, in the space where Topeca at the Hyatt is now.  As I recall, Starbucks moved out in the spring of 2010, and Topeca opened at the same location in early 2011.

The Pint is closing and will reopen as Main Street Tavern (which has locations in BA & Claremore)

Quote
Table Talk: The Pint on Cherry Street closes, acquired by BA restaurant owner
The Pint on Cherry Street, 1325 E. 15th St., has been acquired by the owner of Main Street Tavern in Broken Arrow, according to a post on The Pint’s Facebook page.

The Pint closed Wednesday and posted this message on Facebook:

“Thank you for your patronage over the last 3 years. The Pint on Cherry Street has been acquired by Main Street Tavern which will be opening in a few weeks at our location. Thank you for watching the games with us.”

Main Street Tavern owner Jason Scarpa, who also owns The Rooftop in Broken Arrow and a Main Street Tavern location in Claremore, was not immediately available for comment.

A Pint employee said she understood the site will become another Main Street Tavern location in possibly six to eight weeks.

The Pint opened in 2014, replacing White Owl in that location.
