Getting the sinking suspicion that Prosperity Bank is building a standard drive-through bank on the corner of 21st and Utica. Really hope I'm proved wrong, as it could be a really cool corner.

Oh c'mon now - there is nothing cooler than a bank with a drive-thru (as us cool kids like to spell it). I mean - I don't know what you do for fun but making a deposit using a pneumatic tube is pretty much the highlight of my week.  Grin

It is, you won't be proved wrong. I've seen the renderings and it's really disappointing especially given it's prime corner location in Utica Square. Another reason why I wish we had areas in town that required design review and more strict building standards.

Truly unfortunate.  Blank slate to create a defining corner to mirror Utica Place and they build a one-story drive-through bank.  Prosperity could've easily moved into a multi-story building and incorporated the drive-through.  Demand for boutique office space in Midtown is strong enough to do another Utica East type development here.  This is one of the best corners in all of Tulsa, eventually this will be replaced with a higher and better use.

Well on the bright side (?) at least it's not another faux Spanish villa development. I just wish they had been more realistic with the rendering and incorporated some St John's employees standing outside of it smoking.

Also - from a roofing perspective - what a terrible design. One big dead valley - good luck with that.

The biscuit place in the old Qdoba spot has already closed. Tried it once and liked it just never really thought of it, plus our house is more obsessesed with bagels. Seems like it was open only a few months. And it's a chain.

Foxy tacos still seems to be kicking despite what I hear are pretty universal bad reviews. I went once and didn't love or hate it, which I guess is equivalent of a bad review since I haven't really thought to go back.  Velvet Taco is pretty good, though I wish they had demolished the LJS and built something nicer there. I'll probably go there again sometime soon.

I'm hearing the old Qdoba/Rise Biscuits will be a Summer Moon, a coffee shop chain out of Austin that has recently moved into OKC and Fayetteville.  https://summermooncoffee.com/

Foxy Tacos would be a great spot for something better than Foxy Tacos.  Arguably one of the better patios on Cherry Street.  

No word on when The Hemingway is opening.  The same group is also opening The Bellview at 1336 E 15th by Nola's.  They are also building out a space at 15th & Quaker and have a planned restaurant at 2nd & Kenosha downtown.

I was shocked when Crushed Red tore out the bar on the patio. It was literally the only reason I went to Full Moon a few times (only for brunch since the regular menu wasn't good in my opinion). What a colossally stupid move. Foxy utlizes it much better but their food is mediocre. I'll give it another try soon, I know things sometimes improve over time with new concepts. Their track record is pretty good overall.

I havenít heard any news about Hatch on Cherry Street.  This article indicates there will be three new restaurants opening in 2023 but doesnít mention Tulsa
