The Oheka Bar & Restaurant, located in the historic Gatsby-style Gold Coast mansion in Huntington, is updating its menu in the next two weeks with a host of delicious spring additions. Restaurant manager Jason DeZorett dished on a few details about the highly-anticipated options coming during the warm weather. Visitors can savor the culinary experience for themselves at Pulse’s Doctor’s of Distinction dinner Tuesday, April 25.
No beef, no problem. The appetizer is made with lobster meat (taken from the tail and claw) and jumbo shrimp that are molded into meatballs. Dressed in a panko crust, the tasty balls are then lightly pan-fried. “[They are] a staple on our menu for the last few years and an all-time customer favorite.”
The smoked duck appetizer takes tastebuds on a joyride. Prepared with Thai sesame soba noodles, julienned vegetables, crispy rice noodles, sweet soy, sweet chili and citrus vinaigrette, it “hits all over one’s palate with little bits of smoky, spicy, sweet, savory, salty and crunchy.”
Morning Glory Burger
DeZorett described this burger as “unbelievably rich.” The 10oz house blend burger is enough to appease any carnivore aficionado, but it becomes even more pungent topped with an over easy egg and creamy foie gras inside a buttery croissant roll.
Striped Bass Siciliano
Simple and fresh ingredients preserve the natural taste of the dish. Made with jumbo shrimp, calamari, littleneck clams, PEI mussels, herb quinoa and saffron tomato broth, the inviting combination of flavors will leave diners speechless.
The adobo pork brings a little bit of fire. “We use duroc [pork tenderloin], a heritage breed from an environmentally sustainable facility that has lingering dry heat.” It’s served with creamy avocados and tomato salsa to make cooling off wonderfully refreshing.
