A Touch of Spice

Anew steakhouse in Oklahoma is certainly cause for celebration, but in a crowded and competitive market, the bar is quite high. The recent opening of Hollie’s Flatiron Steakhouse in Moore, the latest concept of the Hal Smith Restaurant Group, is refreshing, delicious and a welcome addition.
Situated immediately in front of the palatial Moore Warren Theatre at 1199 S. Service Road, Hollie’s blends a rustic, dark-wood motif with a menu that has all the steakhouse classics, enhanced by an underpinning of Southwestern flavor.
Start with an appetizer of the Spicy Deviled Eggs ($8). The zest of the flavor is matched by its presentation, on a bed of corn and black bean relish. A bountiful selection of beef tops the entrée menu, with the Ribeye ($20) as a favorite. Try it with a side of Green Chile Mac. This twist on the comfort food favorite features bowtie pasta instead of the expected elbow macaroni. The Prime Rib ($20) is also nicely done, rounded out by an order of sautéed mushrooms. Go for the Caesar Salad that accompanies the entrée; the dressing is nicely piquant, keeping with Hollie’s overall theme. Even the wine list – which includes many labels from Chile and Argentina – helps solidify its position as a steakhouse with spice.
