Oak Restaurant – Sophisticated Dallas Dining
The original bare bricked walls offer an ode to the original structure while the modern industrialized fixtures and greenery that surrounds the room breathes a tone of vibrancy and sophistication.

Owners Richard & Tiffanee Ellman and Tommy DeAlano worked with Plan B to create this magical gem. But it doesn’t just stop with the incredible interior but behind the kitchen doors lies one of the most talented teams in Dallas. The head of the kitchen is led by Executive Chef Jason Maddy along with his Sous Chef Thomas Gray and Pastry Chef Sarah Green.
Chef Maddy was a formal veteran of David Bouley’s Danube restaurant in New York as well the Chef de Cuisine at the Mansion Restaurant in Dallas. With his first executive chef position at Oak, he has already landed the much sought-after 4 star review by the Dallas Morning News and have gained national recognition from Bon Appetit and was a semi-finalist in the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southwest.
The focus is on elegant cuisine that celebrates global flavors with a classical technique and where Maddy constantly challenges culinary boundaries creating robust provocative plates at a comfortably reasonable price.
