Chef Tuck Curren and his wife Kate grew up in New York surrounded by their Italian heritage – Kate’s family emigrated from Italy and her grandparents were so immersed in Italian culture they never spoke English.
After moving to Tulsa in the late 70s and spending decades perfecting recipes from all 21 regions of Italy, they decided to bring their authentic Italian background to Tulsa’s restaurant scene.
Tuck and Kate purchased a corner spot on Brookside for the home of their new restaurant. Kate remodeled the space by painting the walls and decorating the interior while Tuck focused on making sure his handmade pasta, bread and desserts were ready for its debut on opening day. Finally after 20 years of dreaming and planning, Biga opened in January 2000. It is now is a landmark restaurant in the thriving Brookside district.
The staff of this family-owned, casual restaurant welcomes its customers like they would welcome guests into their home. This atmosphere carries over to the staff who are as much of a part of the family as anyone — all employees have worked for Biga for 15 years or more.
Diners can be sure that spending an evening at Biga will give them more than just a meal, it will give them a dining experience they won’t want to end.
