Live Oak Restaurant in Del Ray

Live Oak Restaurant in Del Ray
I’ve always loved Charleston South Carolina and when I saw a Charleston southern cuisine inspired restaurant was in Del Ray I knew I had to try it. Paul and I visited for a Friday date night and it was exceptional. Live Oak is located on Commonwealth Avenue and is the perfect addition to the charming Del Ray area in Alexandria.

We had a reservation but, when we walked in were drawn to the beautiful bar. The bartender, Mark immediately greeted us with a smile and truly made our first experience dining here one to remember. The menu at Live Oak has something for everyone. We opted to start with baked oysters and fried green tomatoes. As if fried green tomatoes aren’t delicious on their own, Live Oak serves them over grits. Both appetizers were devoured in minutes.

For dinner Mark gave us some suggestions, I went for the fried green tomato grilled cheese served on sourdough bread and upon his recommendation added bacon. It was the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had. The perfect blend of texture and flavor. Paul opted for the Angus Burger and I don’t think he said a word from the time his plate arrived until he was finished. Other menu options include shrimp and grits, scallops, fried pork chops, vegetarian gumbo, pan seared rockfish, beef short ribs.
