While we hear that Oak has had its fair share of upheaval with three different chefs in the span of three years, it seems to have finally hit its pace with chef Brian Zenner and his elegant, ever-evolving menu—we’re fans of the Jidori Chicken and his perfectly spiced, slightly Indian-influenced veggie mains. Beyond the food, what makes this Design District spot so popular among the locals is its comfy-meets-classy vibe: With its friendly but on-point service and elegant but cozy decor—big leather couches for seats—it’s perfect for every occasion, from romantic dates to business lunches.
