This handsome new Alpharetta restaurant, a second location for a popular Charleston cow palace, has made a smart choice in focusing its steak menu on a few excellent cuts. Order both a dry-aged and wet-aged steak, and you will be treated to a master class in searing, seasoning and how time can bring out the best funk in prime beef.
Once you move beyond steaks, Oak Steakhouse seems to be a good, rather than great, restaurant. The kitchen tries to balance steakhouse indulgence with modern luxury and a Southern sense of place. It can dish out great pleasure in rich, bubbly oysters Rockefeller, smoky with the inimitable taste of Benton’s bacon, or a bibb lettuce wedge salad showered with marbles of Georgia blue cheese.
