May 27, 2010 (Business Wire) — Tootie Pie Company, Inc. (OTCBB:TOOT) announced that Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma will begin serving Tootie Pies.
“There are few things more American than baseball and apple pie and so we are delighted to have our Tootie Apple Pie, the best pie anywhere, served in the legendary Mickey Mantle Steakhouse; the namesake of one of baseball’s most historic figures,” said Don Merrill, President & CEO.
“The better restaurant operators are responding when we tell them that 25% of our Gourmet Café revenues are coming from Tootie Pie sales. It only makes sense that a group that operates upscale venues like Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse, a 2009 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence Winner, would want to add Tootie Pie to their menu,” added Merrill.
Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse
Across the street from the Bricktown Ballpark and right on the canal, Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse is fast becoming one of the top spots for great food. Steaks and seafood are the main menu items, but the restaurant features a wine list of over 150 selections. Surround yourself with memorabilia from the Mantle family personal collection as you dine. Mickey Mantle was a baseball legend and an Oklahoma native, so it’s only fitting that the restaurant that bears his name be right next to the ballpark and feature one of the best fine dining experiences in Bricktown.
Beautiful and contemporary, the interior is accented with deep cherry wood along some walls and brick along others. The restaurant is well-lit but still has a nice intimate feel, and of course there’s the baseball memorabilia, from trophies to photos and more, tracing the life of its namesake.
Choose a table in the main dining room and have a white linen table setting. Head to the lounge for the live music and get a more relaxed atmosphere and a small, wood table for two. Either way, you’ll get the same great food selection. Even more than the great menu items, Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse succeeds as a go-to spot in Bricktown. A popular place for the evening scene in Oklahoma City, Bricktown almost demands more from its restaurants than simply good food and nice atmosphere. Visitors also want a memorable experience.
