Restaurant’s food not fit for cats
Nestled in a tiny building the heart of the Deep Deuce area of Bricktown, Sage is an Oklahoma City attempt at organic fine dining at reasonable prices. Sage features locally grown organic foods, a nice selection of cheeses, gourmet dressings, and beer.
Sage is known for their signature dish, a version of the comfort food classic macaroni and cheese.
My girlfriend and I started with the hummus plate ($6), of celery, carrots, and tri-colored tortilla chips, which tasted bland and flavorless.
While the hummus might have been uninspired, the macaroni and cheese ($15) was simply amazing.
Featuring lump crab, scallops, and shrimp, the three cheese macaroni ($11.50) is a dish that would be appreciated in Green Bay with its blend of sharp cheddar, Muenster, and Gorgonzola.
A drawback, even of the macaroni and cheese, was the dishes had minimal, if any, salt. Perhaps this is in a ploy to lure diners in, to ordering one of the various $2 salt varieties.
The service was adequate, but nothing special. The sad part about dining at Sage is, with the venue and location, it could be something special; however, it barely rises above mediocre.
Sage is located at 228 NE 2nd Street in the Deep Deuce area of Bricktown.
They are open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. All major credit cards are accepted.
