There’s a new place to dine at the Branson Landing, adding to the variety of options available at the outdoor shopping complex located along Lake Taneycomo. Black Oak Grill, the new restaurant on the block, is giving visitors a unique dining option among its competitors, with modern twists on traditional fare a signature of the restaurant. In fact, Black Oak Grill describes its food as “comfort food with an upscale, fusion twist.”
It was served with root crisps, an item I was honestly not sure of what to expect. It turns out root crisps are made from finely sliced root vegetables, such as potatoes, parsnips and celery root, and are tossed in sea salt. Resembling a lightly fried potato chip, root crisps are a decidedly different approach to the usual French fries. They aren’t for everyone, as my companion was not a fan, but I thought they were an interesting and daring item to serve with the dish.
