I'm always excited about trying new concepts. This new budding restaurant is aiming to "redefine local". They are a family owned restaurant in the center of Homewood just few minutes away from the Oxmoor road exit. After reading the menu for Oak & Raleigh I was highly intrigued and ready to chow down on some of their modern & unique dishes.
Atmosphere: The atmosphere at Oak & Raleigh is vintage/contemporary (if that makes sense). As we approached the restaurant, we got a complete view of the inside through the front of the restaurant as it is completely glassed in. There are three large televisions above the bar area, a comfortable open lounge area and several bistro tables. There is a beautiful wooden wine rack that sits in a corner, along with shelves of a variety of brews. The simplicity of the restaurant is what makes it special in my opinion. They have an extensive and impressive beer & wine list including Alabama's own Morgan Creek. Oak & Raleigh also offers free WI-FI. There are also video games inside for your enjoyment.
