• Proprietors of The Mule to open new restaurant and bar in The Plaza

    Having achieved success with The Mule and Anchor Down, restaurateurs Joey Morris, Cody Rowan and John Harris have started construction on a third venture.



    Dubbed 'The Press' as an homage to the previous Northside Printing operation at 1610 N. Gatewood, the trio will focus on a more traditional entree focused menu but with the same creativity and fun attitude they brought to the previously mundane grilled cheese and corn dog.

    The menu is still in planning stages but inspiration will come from Oklahoma's intersection of Southwestern cuisine's love of chiles, sauces and fresh ingredients and the comfort food from the South.



    The unique industrial space is being renovated and enhanced and the barrel and truss ceilings and concrete floors will feature prominently in the design, as will two existing overhead doors: one near the entrance on Gatewood and the other leading to a large patio to the south.



    There will be three bar areas; two inside and one on the patio.

    The trio bought the building for $305,000 in June of 2016. The building was constructed in 1948 and is almost 4,000 square feet plus the large outdoor space.



    They hope to have The Press open this spring.
