The cranes have come down, and soon employees will move into Oklahoma City's majestic Devon Tower downtown. We've known for some time the $750 million, 50-story skyscraper would include public areas on the ground level and a restaurant on top, but a recent article from OKCBiz clarifies many of the specifics.
The full-service restaurant "Vast" occupies the tower's top two floors, with seating for 135 as well as private rooms, and it will offer, quite obviously, some incredible views. A fine dining concept from Skirvin Hotel chef Andrew Black, the menu will feature American fare such as steaks and seafood, and while many have assumed prices would far eclipse other high-end metro restaurants, officials say that won't be the case. In the OKCBiz article, food and beverage operations head John Williams is quoted as saying, "We are not going to overprice the market just because we're at the top of the building."
Those afraid of heights can still dine in Devon Tower, just a little closer to earth. Named "Nebu," the casual food court and dining area in the garden wing is slated to include a wide array of options including sandwiches, pizza, sushi, salad and gourmet Italian coffees.
