Located in a pocket-sized corner of the Erie City Iron Works building in downtown's northern warehouse district, Oxheart offers just two, six-course menus for dinner: the all vegetarian garden menu or one geared towards omnivores. It's the kind of space, place, and taste that linger well after the meal has ended — creative flavors, clever intertwining of textures, and everything with a local connection. Regardless of your choice, the wine pairings are always a good idea. If the environment is a bit no frills (diners change their own silverware from drawers integrated into the tables), the warm, affectionate service makes everyone feel welcome.
