Shortly after Bryan Dayton and Steve Redzikowski opened Oak at Fourteenth, their plans very nearly went up in smoke. A fire forced a three-month closure that dampened some of the considerable momentum Oak had already begun to build. But from the ashes rose a restaurant that swiftly landed at the top of the dining scene, thanks to Redzikowski’s inventive wood-fired cooking and Dayton’s eye for top-notch service. Seven years later, Oak has settled into an easy groove, turning out seasonal fare culled from local farms and combined in novel combinations like scallops with kiwi and coconut, duck confit with brûléed clementine, and grilled-octopus risotto with Jimmy Nardello peppers. From disparate-sounding flavors come superb compositions, simultaneously fortifying and awe-inspiring. The cocktail program can be similarly mind-expanding, and the deep wine list and well-edited roundup of heavy-hitting beers offer myriad ways to drink with dinner.
