Wow, the Snail was a sh!tty bar institution in this town. Where will all the DBs go now? I need to know what to avoid now.

It's being gutted and going non-smoking per my source.

That seems several years late.

I’d think you’d need to gut it to the bare shell to get the smoke smell out of that place.

And the elevator shaft, stairwell, parts of Jason's Deli, Acrobatant, rip out the bushes and sprinkle moth balls on the patio.

So, it was a casino, too, huh...?

An answer to my question from today's Tulsa World.  I'm hoping for good results.  I like the location and like that they have made some changes.  I also like the emphasis on local craft beer.  Lots of good stuff being made locally these days.

Chef Andres Comacho expects to open The Pint on Cherry Street, 1325 E. 15th St., in a few weeks.

“I would like to get open before the end of June,” he said recently while working on final details for the new restaurant-pub. “We will have a varied menu. I hesitate to say upscale, but it will be good, fresh food. We also will have vegetarian and gluten-free choices.”

He said entrees will range from $8.50 to $22.

Comacho, who came to Tulsa about six years ago from Pennsylvania, has worked at Southern Hills Country Club, Bodean Seafood and Trula at the Mayo Hotel.

Most recently he said he spent a year and a half as banquet chef at Southern Hills.

The Pint will be located in space formerly occupied by White Owl. The space has undergone an extensive remodel.

It has new woodwork throughout, new concrete framing around the entrance, new bathrooms and a new bar top. It still has a long bar in the shotgun space on the ground floor and second-level dining upstairs.

“We have created more dining space upstairs where there used to be a pool table,” Comacho said.

Comacho said The Pint will have a full bar and a large selection of Oklahoma craft beers. He also stressed he wants a family friendly ambience.

“We want everyone to be comfortable,” said Comacho, who was trained at Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Pint will be open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week.

Mitch Neely, who was the original chef at The Alley, has now signed on.  Between Comacho and Neely, the menu should be outstanding.  According to The Pint’s FB page, they will open this coming Monday.

...And if you liked the White Owl, you will like The Pint. 

Menu did not meet my expectations with the pedigree of the owner and chef.  Pretty unimaginative.  Good food, just nothing that was that memorable.  We had pesto chicken wings as an app, had a slight curry aroma, flavor was rather bland.  The “pesto” was chopped parsley sprinkled over the wings served over some butter and garlic sauce.  MC had fish tacos, well-cooked but no real flavor. The accompanying salsa was unremarkable and disappeared in the taco.  I had fish and chips.  The fillets were ample and cooked just right.  Loved the breading.  The “chips” just common fries and too much at that.  The fish in F & C was similar to what Paddy’s and The Alley both used to serve.  So if I need an F & C fix, I’ll return since there’s not many choices for credible F & C style fish in Tulsa.

I wouldn’t say the menu sucks, it’s just not what I’m looking for when we go out.  I want something creative, memorable, and as MC says “Crave-able”.  The menu has a broad appeal, I simply had higher expectations with Andreas and Mitch’s backgrounds.  Turns out Mitch is just on hand to help get the kitchen up and running.  He’s not there for creative input.

It’s been long enough since I was in the White Owl that the changes were really imperceptible to me, but it’s got a fresh look and should be a great place to grab a craft beer with friends.

The service was outstanding.  For being the third day open, I was really impressed how well their system works.  We saw college age kids, middle agers, young couples with young children, and people our parent’s age.  A very diverse crowd, which I think is a good sign.

Conan nails it.  For me, the Pint is White Owl 2.  Nice space, normal menu, food was good... But nothing really original.  My expectations were higher.

Looks like Full Moon isn't opening back up.  They said initially that they were renovating, but I read this morning that they are auctioning off all their equipment.  The pianos were fun and the outdoor patio was neat, but the food was bad and the beer selection was lean.  "World famous" tortilla soup?  More like Pace picante sauce and milk.  It was terrible.  The brunch was about all that was worth eating there.  And the limited beer selection just wasn't keeping up with the times. 

I learned recently that Cherry Street has some of the highest rent in Tulsa so I can't imagine it'll be vacant for too long.  Hopefully something neat and innovative opens up.  Would prefer something local but if its a chain hopefully it's something unique and urban and not a Jimmy Johns or something lame.  The patio alone should have people interested.

I have heard recently that these people http://www.sandbburgers.com/ have been sniffing around the Tulsa area for a location. I don't know anything about them, was just told they were looking for "a few spots" in and around Tulsa to expand into. Perhaps the old Full Moon would be a good spot for them.

I looked them up when I was first told they were looking here. Haven't had a chance to make it to the OKC area since then, but I may be down there this weekend or next and will have to try one out if I stumble across one.

One location that was mentioned to me as a possible Tulsa area location is the abandoned steak house, whatever it was, at 121st and Memorial in Bixby. I drove by there the other day and it appeared work was being done inside the building so maybe there is some truth to what I was told. Time will tell. Since that place, Sante Fe I think, closed there have been constant rumors of something moving in there. It wasn't long ago that it was mentioned as possible spot for another Oklahoma Joe's.

We met a friend at SMOKE last night for dinner and I’m always amazed at how busy Cherry St. is even on a Monday night.

I went to the one in OKC recently.  It's in the northern suburban area.  It's recent construction but designed to feel industrial.  I can see their style fitting in at the Full Moon location.  The burgers were pretty good and had a broad selection.  The menu very closely resembles Hop Bunz.
