The story behind this Oklahoma City restaurant is rich and varied. Owner and chef Rachel Foster has added her own classically trained French aesthetic to the traditions of founder Moni Kaba, a native Macedonian who spent many years in Italy before immigrating to North Texas. The inviting place has a full bar, a spacious patio, a chef’s table and a painting of Foster by renowned OKC artist Marita Walize. Many locals choose carry-out and menu highlights include the chef-recommended Risotto di Rachel, with luscious grilled salmon and creamy, made-to-order toasted walnut spinach risotto, and the Mushrooms Crabmeat, baked in a Marsala cream sauce and topped with mozzarella. 17200 N. May Ave., Ste. 700, Edmond; monisokc.com
