Oakleys Bistro Restaurant Review: Chef-owner Steven Oakley’s suburban gem has become a destination restaurant for those seeking contemporary cooking in a chic, yet casual, environment. The menu is filled with whimsical dishes, such as petite shrimp corn dogs and a suckling pig small plate with apricot mole, spinach, salsa verde, cotija cheese and crispy tortilla salad. Comfort food includes Oakley’s grandfather's recipe for barbecue-glazed meatloaf, and lasagna featuring seasonal vegetables. Partaking of the complimentary wine tasting each Tuesday from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. is a good way to relax before a meal. Experienced servers help with the best wine accompaniment whether your entrée is salmon medallions with cauliflower purée or duck with smoked duck confit, refried fresh lentils and peach fennel tapenade. Although dessert selections vary with the season, some form of the house crème brûlée is bound to be a winner.
