Aunt Bee’s changes name, adds breakfast items
Melting Pot dinner tonight to beneit St. Jude
Aunt Bee’s Fried Chicken, 902 S. Sheridan Road, has added breakfast and changed its name to Aunt Bee’s Kitchen. “We have become a more comprehensive restaurant,” said owner Ayman Alfatal. “We still have fried chicken, but we have more variety now, too.” The new breakfast menu is extensive, showing a variety of fried egg dishes, omelets, skillets, burritos, pancakes, wales and French toast. Breakfast meat items include rib-eye steak, ham steak, sirloin steak, pork chops, pork loin and chicken-fried steak. The lunch and dinner menu has a traditional diner lineup of burgers, salads, sandwiches and home-style entrees. Alfatal said adding breakfast was easy. “We are here prepping, so we might as well be cooking, too,” he said. “I once cooked at Dufy’s and I owned Cafe 51, so I’ve been cooking breakfasts for 16 years.” Alfatal also this fall added about 500 square feet to the dining room. The new space mimics the existing dining room with textured walls, tile loor and big windows. New menus have a ’50s-themed cover.
The Melting Pot, 300 RiverWalk Crossing, Jenks, will donate 50 percent of its Thursday night proceeds to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The hospital’s local patients and their families will be on hand to share personal stories with restaurant guests. Guests may dine on a special four-course fondue menu for $45 per person with an optional wine light available for an extra $30. The Melting Pot staf is also donating 100 percent of its time and tips for that day to the hospital. To check to see if any seats remain, call 918-299-8000.
