Everything Else | Oak Long Bar + Kitchen

I am sad to say that I never went to the original Oak Bar. I probably would have loved it because after trying the new one I’ve been back four separate times. No joke. The interior renovation is absolutely stunning. It’s a great place to class it up for a night but also fine to grab a casual glass of wine after work. Even though the menu totally accommodates people that want a full-on dinner, but I think it’s better for a snack and a few drinks…and maybe dessert too. The new menu goes with the whole ‘old meets new’ attitude of the place, so the fancy hotel guests can get their old school Oysters Rockafeller and people like me can get a pulled pork flatbread.

Here are some of my current faves at Oak Long Bar + Kitchen, besides last week’s Food Porn of course…

margarita pizza

The simple yet fresh to death Summer Flatbread: farm tomatoes, burrata, sweet basil

oysters rockafeller

The classic Oysters Rockafeller: Garlicky baby spinach, pernod cream

charcuterie

My favorite dish, an epic cheese and charcuterie board: LBK Board with Prosciutto Americano, Organic, La Quercia, Smoked Speck, Salumeria Biellese Sopressata, Artisan Salame, Fra-Mani, Spicy Coppa, Salumeria Biellese, Porchetta, Berkshire Blue, Raw Cow, MA, Landaff, Cave Aged, Raw Cow, VT, Cabot Clothbound Cheddar, Raw Cow, VT

pork flatbread

See what I mean? Pulled Pork Flatbread: sweet corn, salted caramel onions, pickled grapes, smoked cheddar

vegetable tagliatelle

More of an entree, but great to split if you’re hungry, Hand Cut Tagliatelle: Maine lobster, braised short rib, zucchini soffrito, pecorino cheese

whoopie pie

(This is about the size of a baby’s head) Chocolate Whoopie Pie with a glass of cold milk

Two weeks and I’m already an Oak Long Bar + Kitchen enthusiast. I should probably find a new obsession before I can’t pay October’s rent…
