Lost Restaurants of Tulsa Book Signing with Author, Rhys Martin

  • Mother Road Market 1124 S. Lewis Ave. Tulsa, OK, 74104 United States (map)

Join Tulsa author Rhys Martin in our Demonstration Kitchen as he signs and discusses his new book, "Lost Restaurants of Tulsa". This new book covers the history of about 50 restaurants from the city's history as the "Oil Capital of the World." The rush of roughnecks and oil barons built a culinary foundation that not only provided traditional food and diner fare but also inspired upper-class experiences and international cuisine. Tulsans could reserve a candlelit dinner at the Louisiane or cruise along the Restless Ribbon with a pit stop at Pennington’s. Generations of regulars depended on family-owned establishments such as Villa Venice, The Golden Drumstick and St. Michael’s Alley. 

Come to Mother Road Market to learn more about Rhys' research and get a copy of the book for your very own. As a special treat, a limited quantity of My Pi Pizza will be available! Get here early to make sure you get a little taste of this part of Tulsa history.
