Oak Cafe and Wine Bar, Williamsburg
We went there last night for what turned out to be a very pleasant and delicious dinner. We started with the fig jam and fresh ricotta bruschetta, which was sweet, light and divine. I think it would have made as good of a dessert as an appetizer. My fiance had 2 bottles of mustard beer, which were Belgian style and tasted vaguely of pickles, in a good way.
For dinner, I had the gingered scallops and arugula salad -- which was light and flavorful. He had the homemade spinach gnocchi with walnut cream sauce. It sounds heavy, but there was a sparing amount of cream, and the gnocchi was very toothsome.
We sat on the back patio. Service was lovely. It's a great new addition to the neighborhood and I am excited to return to try out other dishes!
