The pride of the Turquoise American Bistro, 786 Asp Ave. in Norman, is that its food is made from scratch.
The restaurant originally could only seat about a dozen people and served breakfast and lunch. Now it can seat about 85 patrons and serves brunch, lunch and dinner. It also offers a full bar selection.
“Emilio,” who has owned and operated Pepe Delgado’s on Campus Corner in Norman, since 1992, also owns the restaurant.
General Manager Brady Sexton said the food “is made from scratch. It’s just high-quality food with kind of a Southwestern twist to it, so it’s not so boring. It’s really good.”
Sexton said customers raves about the “sunburn trout.” The bistro also offers a variety of steaks.
An appetizer that is quickly becoming a favorite is the salmon nachos, Sexton said.
Happy hour, which is from 3 to 7 p.m., offers $4 glasses of wine and other cocktails, Sexton said. During happy hour, the restaurant also has small appetizers for $5 each.
Turquoise American Bistro offers patrons an upbeat, semi-casual atmosphere. It also offers an intimate setting great for couples or friends just wanting to hang out.
For anyone who likes variety, the restaurant offers a different special every day for lunch and dinner. Prices for lunch range from $7 to $12, and dinner prices range from $10 to $27.
