Assuming you're at the downtown Renaissance:

No lunch, but if you have time for a dinner, Mahogany is a must-do. One of the best steaks you'll ever have.

Tellers is a short walk away, good food and a unique atmosphere.

Bourbon St. Cafe is on the riverwalk - not really authentic creole like you're probably used to, but it's good.

Friday through Sunday, Rodizio Grill serves lunch. Maybe you've been to one of these Brazilian steakhouses where they bring skewers of meat to your table and you pick anything & everything you want, but i you have not then it's worth a try. Their salad bar is very good too.

If you just want a good burger & fries, go to The Garage and try a bison burger. It's like the freshest, best-tasting beef you've ever had.

Tell me what kind of food you like. believe it or not, OKC has a large asian demographic so there are tons of asian restaurants I can recommend if you like those sorts of things.

There is an area north of downtown called Paseo Arts District which is a cool little area with spanish architecture and has a few good restaurants. Fridas is southwestern (New Mexicoish) , Picasso is farm to table, Paseo Grill is upscale american, Punk Burger and Sauced (pizza).

Wedge is a good Pizza Spot.

Barrios is awesome.

There's a cool bar next to Barrios as well called The R&J Lounge and Supper Club. It may be cash only. Don't remember.

When I lived there, I always enjoyed any Good Egg restaurants or 84 hospitality.

Good Egg - Cheevers, Red Prime, Republic, Tucker’s Burgers, Kitchen 324)
84 Hospitality - Empire, Goro Ramen, Burger Punk

Jones Assembly has a cool atmosphere, Mary Eddy’s was always a good meal. There are tons of good places in Paseo Arts District (notably Frida) and Plaza District (Empire, Roxy’s Ice Cream, The Mule).

Halls Pizza Kitchen is up there with Empire.

For coffee and breakfast, hit up Harvey’s.

If you’re staying at the Renaissance, walk a bit west toward the park near the Omni/OKC arena and grab a burger at Spark Burger. Was my new favorite burger place before I moved. Can also grab some beers at Social Capital.

Ive stayed at that hotel numerous times and this last trip decided to try a boutique hotel instead of the tourist/convention hell area. I stayed at Bradford House. Its an OG craftsman house converted to a hotel. Super cool. The bartender was from Hammond. Had jazz on the patio and free french pressed coffee delivered to your room in the am.
