The Short Order
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.
