The Oak Table in Columbia SC

Rufus Dog | May 13, 201506:58 PM    

Since I usually study up here and ask questions about new places, I figured that I ought to contribute as well. Just had supper at Oak Table.
I have always wanted to love Oak Table, but the food was never consistently good ( I thought Brunch was pretty consistent, but not dinner). I have tended to love Terra for its interesting seasonal use of local ingredients served with consistent excellence.
A new Chef has been in place at Oak Table for a month. He is down from the soon to close Seven Sows in Asheville. Dinner at Oak Table tonight was remarkably good. When we perused the menu, we noticed a few of the old standbys, but most of the menu is showed the hand of someone else at the helm. Dishes took advantage of local produce, and were prepared simply and beautifully. The braised Lamb appetizer with morels and fava beans was incredibly tender and rich, The fresh spring flavors of the vegetables played against the richness of the lamb beautifully. Every plate that came to the table tonight was beautiful, delicious, and served at the appropriate temperature.
I look forward to returning in hopes of another incredibly delicious meal.
