Whenever I eat out, I gain inspiration for my own cooking. Last night we ate at Kyle’s 1025 in Oklahoma City. The restaurant resembles a house inside, with several different dining rooms, each with unique decor. It’s almost like a museum, displaying local artwork and antiques.
Kyle (the owner) came to check on us and told us a little about the restaurant’s past, how he remembered eating there when he was a child. Though the name and owners have changed twice since then, the menu’s “Oklahoma Classics” section preserves some of the history, as it includes recipes from each of the previous owners.
The entire meal was excellent but I was especially inspired by my tilapia. It was pan seared and served with a lemon butter and caper sauce and truffled risotto. My husband ordered the filet, which was also delicious, but he really loved the fish. I plan to make something similar for him and I’ll post my recipe and pictures when I do.
