The Los Angeles-based Daily Grill restaurant opened August 18 in the exciting and newly renovated Crowne Plaza Hotel, just walking distance from the soon-to-be-completed BOK Center and the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.

“Our new location is an exciting step in the growth of the Daily Grill brand, now a mainstay of Classic American fare in cities across the United States,” says Philip Gay, CEO of Grill Concepts. “We’re thrilled to bring our signature recipes, each prepared from-scratch and with the highest-quality, fresh ingredients, to a wonderful community of sophisticated food fans in Tulsa.”

Quintessentially American in ambiance and fare, Daily Grill has received rave reviews across the United States for its straightforward, classic American fare, prepared using home-cooking techniques, with fresh ingredients purchased daily. Daily Grill offers a casual, familiar setting with attentive service, along with simply prepared, classic American fare.

Aged Certified Angus Beef, chops, fresh seafood, classic Cobb and Caesar salads, signature favorites such as braised shortribs, chicken pot pie and homestyle desserts are hallmarks of Daily Grill. More contemporary selections include seared ahi sashimi and a hummus trio appetizer. The restaurant also features an extensive wine list and handcrafted cocktails.

For those who appreciate great American food made fresh from scratch, Daily Grill invites guests to come and experience dining the way it was meant to be: one great meal at a time, prepared by people who care.

Executive Chef John Sola is the culinary talent behind the famous Beverly Hills-based concept and sister-restaurant to Daily Grill, The Grill on the Alley, which has been a tradition in Beverly Hills for 25 years. The Grill has earned its status as a landmark restaurant with a loyal following from locals, visitors and celebrities alike. Unofficially designated as the “commissary” for the surrounding talent agencies including the William Morris Agency and CAA, The Grill has always been host to business leaders from all industries, especially entertainment. Chef John Sola has received rave reviews from restaurant critics at such leading news outlets as Gourmet and Food & Wine and has received honors including an invitation to cook at the prestigious James Beard House in New York.

Daily Grill was created with influences from The Grill on the Alley in an upscale-casual restaurant concept that would be available to a larger number of people at more accessible prices. The first Daily Grill opened in Brentwood, an upscale Los Angeles area neighborhood, in 1988.

Daily Grill Tulsa will feature wonderful recipes for every appetite and preference, all with a fresh but classic approach to traditional mainstays of an American grill menu.

Daily Grill is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open daily at 6 a.m. For reservations call (918) 295-7748. All major credit cards are welcomed. Daily Grill is located at 100 E. Second St., Tulsa, adjacent to the Crowne Plaza Hotel lobby. www.dailygrill.com
