OAK STEAKHOUSE 417 West Hargett Street The Indigo Road Restaurant Group has brought the legacy of the original Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, South Carolina, to downtown Raleigh. Here you’ll find a classic steakhouse in the truest sense, but with contemporary and local inflections at every turn. Executive Chef Todd Woods comes with an impressive background, including six years at Restaurant Nora in Washington. Originally from Lenoir, Chef Woods is committed to local sourcing and works with many of the area’s farmers and purveyors. The excellent beef and protein selections are accompanied by farm-fresh sides, and the wine and beverage menu steps up to the polished dining ambiance. Plan a celebration dinner here!
