Oak at Fourteenth started out strong: Within a few months of co-owners Bryan Dayton and Steven Redzikowski, both formerly of Frasca, opening their comfortable yet refined New American restaurant in Boulder, it earned shout-outs from both the local and national press. Oak was designed as a neighborhood place, with award-winning craft cocktails, a menu tilted toward sharing, and a wood-burning oven that lends a rustic flavor to meats and vegetables and fills the restaurant with a cozy campfire smell. Until another kind of fire altogether destroyed all but a few beams and shuttered the space for nine months. But Oak reopened in December 2011, bigger and better than before, with nearly double the number of seats and an increased emphasis on shared plates that range from tempura-battered pickles dipped in tarragon-spiked Green Goddess aioli to amazing meatballs with parmesan, ricotta and Tender Belly fatback added to the beef-pork blend. With so many dishes to love, it’s easy to get attached. But other than a few staples (meatballs being one), the menu changes seasonally – which at Oak sometimes means several times a week.
Melding elements of Colorado’s rustic backdrop with Boulder’s hip and contemporary dining scene, OAK at fourteenth is a stylish neighborhood restaurant featuring local and seasonal New American Cuisine in a friendly and professional atmosphere.
Chef/Owner Steven Redzikowski’s seasonally inspired menus are focused around OAK’s one-of-a-kind, oak-fired oven and grill and offer selections from Colorado’s abundant agricultural landscape. OAK is proud to feature locally grown vegetables, locally sourced meats, sustainably raised seafood, and house-made pastas.
OAK also offers a variety of creative hand-crafted cocktails and hand-selected artisan wines and beers that are the perfect addition
to every element of our cuisine.

There's a world of warm cocktails beyond the hot toddy - order the Pearl Street Toddy created by Bryan Dayton. Its the best hot drink on the menu! Click More Info for the full recipe.
Get the fried pickles. They are fucking amazing.

The Oak Manhattan is really good. As were my lamb t-bones.
