The lamb meatballs are two tiny specs of meat swimming in a bowl of sauce, not much taste on this one. Followed by braised short ribs - too much fat through the meat - not much taste as there was no meat content and the...More

Wine choice: TodoContigo Reserva 2011 Malbec, Mendoza-Argentina. We finished the night with perfectly cooked Octopus for me and Scallops...More

I love restaurants with charming outdoor seating and low hanging lights. This place was beyond beautiful. Service was impeccable, it started to rain and they swiftly moved everything to another table like it was nothing. We ordered the cheese platter, it was fantastic, with very...More

Midtown fancy, great outdoor/indoor setting in what actually makes you feel like you are in an Oak Tavern. Imagine that. Foods very good. Bar is very good.

Eating wonderful food, outside, in a relaxed environment, with good friends, what could be better? We enjoyed an early afternoon Sunday Brunch in the garden area. Omelets, burgers, salads, and pancakes were our choices. All were well prepared, with fresh ingredients. The servers are experienced,...More

This is a lovely environment with my favorite - small plates, which are excellent for sharing. We were a group of five and we sat on the charming patio, under the shelter of the roof, while a gentle rain fell on us. The roasted beets...More

The Design district, as this earlier downtrodden neighborhood has re-branded itself, is hopping with nightlife these days. But standing out from the crowd is Oak Tavern. Predominantly a small plates/taps style menu, the food was excellent from start to finish. A very solid wine list,...More

Welcome to Andalus, a sprawling Spanish beauty stocked with flamenco music, rare ham and a huge pig sculpture, officially open for your next late-night date.

This is very similar to that spot in southern Spain you haunted during your study abroad program: think waiters in vests, snow-white half banquettes, a gleaming wood bar and a flamenco guitarist strumming his instrument in the courtyard.

You"ll probably want to head here with a senorita after a gallery walk, and don't worry about showing up early—it's open till 4am. Start with a midnight snack of tender octopus salad and glasses of Rioja, then move on to rabbit paella and platters of authentic Spanish ham, from the salty, deep-red Serrano to the jamón ibérico, one of the world's priciest cured meats.

It's like the caviar of pork.
