I tried a new restaurant in Midtown Oklahoma City last week: 1492. It’s on Walker, between NW 11th & 12th.  Parking was a bit of an an issue, but we managed.

I love to eat adventurously; my family and friends, not so much.  That’s part of why I suggested trying this restaurant; it offers lots of fun, fresh, unique dishes to try, and it also has a Tex-Mex menu for those who don’t feel like venturing too far afield.  I had the very delicious Red Snapper Veracruz with coconut rice instead of Spanish rice (hey, it was for my birthday, and I’m pregnant — one substitution is not a lot to ask).  Every other dish on our table was either enchiladas or nachos; everyone had only good to say about either.

Since it was my birthday, I tried the chocolate cheesecake for dessert, and it was heavenly (as you’d expect; what’s not to love about chocolate cheesecake?).  My mother and mother-in-law split the sopapillas a la mode, and said they were phenomenal as well.  Overall, I highly recommend it, and plan on returning there myself sometime soon.
