The city of Tahlequah is aching for a new place to eat and have a drink. Their expectations will soon be tested by the restaurant formerly known as Town Branch, which will reopen under a new title: The Branch.
Jack Martin, Spavinaw senior, remembers the old Town Branch from his early days at NSU.
“Cheap beer and okay food,” said Martin. “That’s about all you could expect from the Town Branch I remember, so I’m excited to see what they’re coming out with.”
With a complete renovation, a new owner, and a new head chef, The Branch plans to wipe those memories away for good.
Lynsey Stroud, Sallisaw sophomore, is currently in training at The Branch as a cocktail waitress. She was highly impressed at the look of the recently renovated restaurant.
“Everything looks new,” said Stroud. “The wooden tables and leather chairs, the huge bar, the back patio. They even added an upstairs dining area.”
The Branch will be a fine dining restaurant with menu items including: Wood-Grilled Prime Ribeye, Stuffed Porterhouse Porkchops, and Bacon-Wrapped Chipotle Ceviche.
College students and people of the town have been watching the building’s construction during the past eight months and are intrigued and excited about the new restaurant’s opening. The Branch is shooting for mid-April as a possible opening date. So throw out old memories about Town Branch, and get ready for the newly remodeled, Tahlequah owned, fine dining experience known as The Branch.
