Oak Tavern Opens in Design District

Oak Tavern Opens in Design DistrictFriday, November 16, Oak Tavern, 35 NE 40th Street Miami, Miami Design District

David Bracha, Executive Chef and Partner at The River Seafood & Oyster Bar, is opening a second restaurant in the former Andalus location. Oak Tavern will serve modern American food, and it’ll be right around the corner from Harry’s Pizzeria, sitting on Northeast 40 Street just off North Miami Avenue and down the street from Michael’s Genuine. Tapping into the culinary trends of today, Chef Bracha will be supporting local agriculture and sourcing products from such purveyors and growers as Borek Farms, Paradise Farms, and Keys Gate Farm. Most of the menu also promises to be made in house, including a selection of charcuterie that showcases such varied cured products as coppa de testa and potted foie gras mousse, as well as a spit-roasted pigs done outdoors. Even the bar will offer several house made sodas to enjoy on their own or as part of a cocktail. Entrées will demonstrate the spectrum of Chef Bracha’s tastes and techniques while retaining a consistent theme of New American comfort food with dishes like smoked lamb ribs with kale pesto, yogurt, and mint, and a duck pizza with pear, mustard, wild mushrooms, and fontina. Weekly specials intend on offer diners some serious American comfort classics like Chef Bracha’s take on the iconic Italian-American “Sunday gravy” and that Southern standby, chicken and biscuits.
