Impressions Restaurant – Tulsa

Downtown Tulsa has two great lunch spots on Bartlett Square (you know, where the circle is). This past Monday with the ice storm coming I went to Impressions for some comfort food.

Impressions is the best lunch spot downtown. Its not the fastest, Tom and the folks that work with him, make everybody’s order one at a time. Nothing is prepackaged. If you want a sandwich, they make it in front of you. They are very efficient but its not like Arby’s a block north on Main. At Impressions, they take the food very seriously. Sometimes there is a line, its worth it.

I splurged. I had a bowl of the stew (the stew is the best in Tulsa outside of the Yogi household, where Sweetie is the chef) with French Bread, “buttered and toasted?” asks Tom. “Absolutely” I always answer, today a treat for me, the best Carrot Cake to be had anywhere.

Next time you are downtown and are hungry, and are not in too much of a hurry. Let me know, we’ll go have lunch at Impressions.

Let me tell you about Tom. Each and every customer that comes into his restaurant is treated courteously, their food is prepared carefully, and each customer is thanked personally for their business by Tom and wished a good day.

You can spend a lot more money for a lot less than what Impressions gives you.

    Everytime I see a comment you left on someone’s blog I want to jump over to your site and tell you that I love the musical notes by your name. So cute… in a manly way of course. 🙂

    Oh, that carrot cake looks so yummy.

    And, I was just telling my mom I want some stew. I told her the next time she stayed all night she needed to make it for me. I’ve never made stew. I don’t know what’s keeping me from trying. I just don’t think it will be as good.

    I’m never downtown. But, if I ever am I’m going to Impressions. Sounds wonderful!

    Thanks DeeBee. I love them also. I am just so proud that I figured out how to make them. (the insert symbol command in word for windows. I am sure there are easier ways to do it.)

    I tried one note, It looked lonely. I tried four, too odd, for an even number, went back to three.

    Oh that stew looks wonderful. I’ve never eaten at any of the resturants downtown. I will have to try and go down there sometime. Wonder if they are open on weekends (saturday?).

    Lorrrdy, I miss me some Impressions. I used to eat their club sandwich (buttered and toasted, of course) once a week or so when I worked downtown.

    Try the chocolate pie. *groan*
