D’Novo Lean Gourmet – New Tulsa Treat October 21, 2008
My husband and I went to a new restaurant in Tulsa called D’Novo Lean Gourmet. The whole point of the restaurant is to provide gourmet food without the calories. Each meal is supposed to be under 500 calories, which isn’t too bad considering some of the smoothies sold at Jamba Juice have over 1,000 calories.
The restaurant is located at 61st and Yale where The Market used to be. It is a nice shopping center, and D’Novo seemed to have an excellent image. To get inside the restaurant one has to walk through the outside eating area, which is beautiful. Check it out below…
Now that I look back at them, my pictures don’t really do it justice. You all can just use these and then imagine.
In the entrance to the restaurant is a waterfall on the left which is very pretty. The whole restaurant is white it seems. The booths are white; the walls are white, like I said everything is white. I don’t know how they are going to maintain the white booths or the white walls. It seems like they would get dirty so fast. Well, that is their problem to worry about. On to the food.
I ordered chicken with ratatouille pasta. The chicken was wonderful. I thought it would be too dry, but to my amazement it wasn’t. It was great. It was served with whole wheat pasta which definitely needed some more vegetables added it to it for the price tag.
My husband ordered a sirloin burger which was served as a wrap. His meal came with a salad.
Next time we go, I will have the Sirloin Burger as well. It was very very good.
Overall, I was pleased with the atmosphere and food at D’Nono. The man who took our order wasn’t the most friendly crayon in the box, but he seemed efficient enough. I was surprised at how quickly our food was delivered to our table. My husband and I will definitely go back to D’Nono and I would recommend it.
The restaurant is filled with chandeliers. My phone didn’t do a good job at capturing their brilliance, but you get the idea.
