About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

With a menu described as modern Midwestern, Oak + Char in Chicago, IL offers diners an inspiring setting full of repurposed wood. Most of the dishes are cooked with natural methods such as clay pots, tandoor ovens and open fire, and even the specialty cocktails whipped up by the staff will use liquors aged in old oak. A communal table restaurant, diners mingle in this warm and welcoming space.

Menu options for diners at Oak + Char include a bountiful array of starters like the Bacalao wontons or the octopus hushpuppies. Entr�es include meats and seafood as well as a family style tasting menu. There are greens and grains, including a roasted pear salad with goat cheese and pickled lemons. There is also a burger and sandwich menu, but choices include duck kielbasa bahn mi and smoked trout. Clearly, Oak + Char is a must try spot.
