This is 2020 and it should not take an act of congress to get a head of lettuce which is not wilted.
All the ruckus about saving kids from smoking and obesity being a major issue but no variety of grocery stores. I am not even asking for reasonably priced ones anymore.

More sophisticated than I expected.

Where's that fish market? I need to check it out.
Bodean's, 51st and Harvard.

Another one is White River with locations in BA and on N Sheridan, but further away. I think they only fly in fish a few times a week but it's still good.

That looks great! But those are some big-city menu prices.

That's why I mentioned White River, which is also really good at much lower prices. They are an Institution. It's a lot like the fish markets and restaurants you see all over in Florida. Very plain and very good.

White River Fish Market and Restaurant of Tulsa, Oklahoma

I forgot about Hebert's, which has Cajun seafood and meats. They are at 71st and Lewis and ship their items all over. They are awesome, best meat market for steaks in town, but they are spicy.

Hebert's Specialty Meats | Turducken | Cajun Food Delivery and Turduckens

Native Okie here living in DFW metro after a career living in Houston. I liked Houston but am happier where I am but find fresh seafood options scarce here compared to Houston. Just too far to move fresh seafood daily to keep the price in line with Houston. I like my fish to taste like chicken so its not a big loss for my taste.

Open to any/all input, thanks!
I'm not familiar with Tulsa except to drive through, but isn't Tulsa's big suburb Broken Arrow considered pretty nice? It's grown like a prairie fire for the past few decades and it looks fairly upscale.

I was about to offer OP access to my LinkedIn with nine years of contacts in this market.

High tech companies are pulling their open job requisitions right and left in the wake of this Coronavirus, layoffs are being announced at large tech companies. If you have a secure job don't leave until this crisis has passed.

Are you in IT?

Here's the thing, we're looking at multiple cities/states to relocate to currently. My wife was really interested in OKC for a while but her interested has started to wayne because vaccine friendly pediatricians have been hard for us to find in the area. It's not out of the question though. Oklahoma is still a possibility for us, but it's all up in the air currently.
That said the tech job market of wherever we move to needs to be healthy so I can find a job.

What? Why? This makes no sense.

I work in high tech and the most we have done is stop all non-essential travel and have all our employees in our Tokyo office stay home and work remotely.
