When you first walk into Oxalis, you might start wondering why you don’t see any roast chicken. Perhaps they’re sold out. But you also can’t spot a single burger with housemade ketchup and hand-cut fries, or any of the other dishes you’re used to seeing inside this specific category of white-walled, light-wood-covered Brooklyn restaurants. Oxalis is on a quiet block near Prospect Park, with an open kitchen barely wider than a treadmill, a spare 30-seat dining room, bright lights, loud music, and a small bar area in the back. It feels a lot like other casual, neighborhood spots. But there’s nothing casual about the food at Oxalis.
You don’t just avoid the burger-or-chicken decision here – there are no menu options at all. Oxalis offers one tasting menu each night, which changes regularly and includes six courses for $70. But even the sheet listing the night’s dishes isn’t useful, since the simple ingredients don’t give any real sense of what you’re in for. You only get that once the food starts arriving. Then you’ll stop and stare into space like a decommissioned Westworld host while you search for ways to explain what you’re tasting.
