Wood-fired pizza, house-baked-ciabatta sandwiches, and more Italian specialties with an artisanal approach are changing the dining landscape in Harahan, as Oak Oven has officially opened as of yesterday. Chef Adam Superneau a Vincent's/Commander's/Besh Group alum who has studied and trained under Italian chefs in several michelin-starred restaurants and partners Thomas Macaluso and John Matassa are all New Orleans natives with Sicilian roots. Their wood-burning oven fires up Lousiana oak wood only, and food-wise their intention is sustainability, sourcing locally with farmers they know, plus they also have their own farm. Here's the menu, which features housemade pastas available in small/large sizes, pizzas hovering around the $12-$15 range, and ciabatta sandwiches under $10. There's also charcuterie cured in house, and more 'tradizionale' entrees like veal parm, plus daily seasonal specials and gluten free/vegetarian/vegan offerings too. Wine and beer are also available. This is pretty sweet addition to Jefferson Highway, especially considering the building is a former Popeye's.
