One of Cherry Street’s oldest restaurants the Full Moon Cafe is setting its sights on one of the area’s newest retail districts.
Full Moon Cafe owners plan to open a new restaurant in Broken Arrow near Bass Pro Shops at 411 W. Stone Wood Dr. , bringing the midtown eatery’s famous dueling piano show, along with a popular menu of American and Tex-Mex foods.
“It is a great part of broken arrow to be in,” said Full Moon owner Tony Henry. “Bass pro shop is an attraction and there is some tourism that goes along with that.”
Full Moon has been part of the Cherry Street dining scene for 24 years and owners have watched the neighborhood grow into one of the area’s most popular and most eclectic retail and dining districts.
The Full Moon is known for its “famous” tortilla soup, Henry said, and its mix of hamburgers, salads, pasta and a handful of Mexican inspired favorites.
But the dueling piano events, hosted Friday and Saturday nights, has made the bar famous in Tulsa as entertainers take to the keys on two grand pianos and vie for the love of the audience by playing and singing popular songs.
The 5,000-square foot location will have about 40 employees, he said, and plans call for it to open in late March.
