The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - Restaurant Review -

In­dulge your­self at O’Ke­effe Café with a clas­si­cally in­spired cui­sine that de­lights with in­tensely con­cen­trated fla­vors, gen­er­ally well-con­ceived and ex­e­cuted com­bi­na­tions, and sur­prises like house-made paté, sweet­breads, and braised ox­tail that most restau­rants es­chew for those bor­ing and less fla­vor­ful stan­dards, pork loin and chicken breast. The new 12-op­tion prix

fixe menu changes weekly, so there’s rea­son to en­joy the el­e­gant din­ing room or shady pa­tio of­ten. The wine list is an oenophile’s ref­er­ence. Rec­om­mended: baby greens salad, ox­tail strudel, house paté, roasted beets and goat-cheese crum­ble, sweet­breads with sauce au poivre, duck con­fit, boudin noir and boudin blanc, petit filet

with sauce Foyot, choco­late deca­dence, Black For­est torte, and choco­late hazel­nut

torte with tof­fee ice cream.
