This Crown Heights Gem Does A New Tasting Menu Every Single Night
This former pop-up sold out so many time that it had to establish a permanent location—and by offering fine, experimental American dining at a reasonable price, it’s no wonder the demand is high. At Oxalis, a seasonal rotating menu means a different array of four to six courses every night, which have included dishes like young carrots with chamomile, and duck breast with yogurt and fig, radish scallop apples. Unpretentious and elegantly simple, the bistro is split into a light, wooded main dining room where the tasting menu applies, and a silver bar room where you can order small plates a la carte.
Follow up your unique dining experience with equally unique cocktails at Drink, a dark and quiet lounge that prides itself on originality, both in drinks and in decor. You won’t be able to order up your regular Long Island, but their distinctly delicious beverages promise to make up for it. Try on luxe cocktails like the Dulce Fuego, The Runaway and their famous Watermelon Basil Smash. With lights so dim, seats so plush and (explicitly) no background music, you and your love are guaranteed space for intimacy and carefree relaxation.
