Two Tulsa restaurants are on Yelp’s 2022 list of America’s Top 100 Restaurants.
La Tertulia and East Village Bohemian Pizzeria both made the final ranking.
Bohemian has been serving success for seven years, known for its Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizzas and homemade pastas.
Owners Amy Johnson McMillin and Patrick Johnson say that since the listing was released, people have been queuing at the door.
“We couldn’t believe it. We were like, top 100 in the country?” McMillin said.
She says every day starts with fresh ingredients.
“We make the pasta fresh; we make the pizza fresh,” McMillin said.
The brother and sister duo have always loved Italian food.
When they found the building in downtown Tulsa, the siblings said it was meant to be.
“And there happened to be a wood-fired oven. Literally,” Johnson said.
Once the toppings are ready to use, each pizza goes into the oven heated to 800 degrees.
It only takes a few minutes until it’s ready to eat.
“We have such consistent food and we have so many repeat customers who just talk about us and write great reviews and I guess that’s how we got on the list,” McMillin said.
Bohemian is ranked on Yelp’s listing at number 83 in the country.
McMillin says with Bohemian’s name in the national spotlight, there has been an influx of people coming to the restaurant.
The menu also includes several vegan and gluten-free options.
There is an outside terrace with heaters in winter and misters in summer.
“I guess we just have a great group of people working here. We have such a good vibe,” McMillin said. “When you walk in, you feel like you’re not in Tulsa, Oklahoma. You walk into some mundane place in New York or Europe or something.”
La Tertulia is rated 91. The neo-Mexican style restaurant is in the Blue Dome area.
