A "just inside the beltline" neighborhood establishment where every morsel achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour — even dessert.

Our serving style is 'morsels' which are portions between appetizers and entrees.  We rotate new seasonal selections to our menu, but keep our favorites available all the time.  Check out our feature daily veg dish on our chalkboard or as a server for details.  Our wine is carefully selected to pair appropriately with each morsel dish.  At Taste, you'll also have access to our owner's private wine reserve. 

No one has done food and wine the way Taste does it. INCREDIBLE fresh food thats so good it hurts you to the CORE.

the Oak is a bourbon bar in Raleigh that uses fresh ingredients in our drinks and our southern fusion food menu served by a staff who share our same passion for good food and drinks.  Our menu is made from scratch dishes paired with in season fruits and veggies.  The Oak has a over 60 different bourbons to try featuring our in-house re-aged bourbon, a unique and delicious offering of wines, and craft beers on draft.  We also offer bourbon dinners, bourbon tastings and a have an adopt-a-barrel program for our house-aged bourbons.
