About Brian Schwartz

Born in NYC, age 0, on my birthday. College in Oxford at age 16. Law School in New Haven, Conn. 6 years travel in Africa and Asia. Haven’t done much lately. Still, I’m the only Tulsa member of the little-known Omega Society. I speak enough Chinese to order food not on any English menu. Spanish French Italian too (not fluently but food-ently) My favorite restaurant is Jean-Georges in New York. But those NYC chefs would sell their soul to get the produce available from the farms around Inola. “A writer writes alone. His words tumble forth from a magical inner void that is mysterious even to himself, and that no one else can enter.” And yet, the most important thing to me the writer is YOU. Without you to hear them, my words are worth less than silence.

    KEO Keeps Getting Better

    Keo has the rare yet unenviable distinction of not being on any of my Best of Tulsa lists. Why? Because I was wrong! I haven’t visited in a long time, but I should have realized that a...

    There’s Something About Mary’s

    It’s easy to fall in love with Mary’s. Why did I wait so long? I used to think that Italian cooking is inseparable from family tradition, that you can’t cook Italian food with passion and soul unless...
