Oak Cafe Surprises

Trey Popp gets off the beaten R1 tracks and finds Under the Oak Cafe.

Even the turkey stew had a light touch. The broth was rich but nowhere near congealed, and it came over a buttermilk scone, giving the dish a profile a little like a dressed-up pot pie. Red lentil cakes were sautéed to a thin crisp but retained a pillowy texture within, and married excellently with shaved carrots smothered in oil and Moroccan spices.
