Oskar's Story:

When Chez Oskar opened in 1998, a culinary bohemia exploded on the back streets of Brooklyn. Inspired by New York's Harlem Renaissance and the neighborhood bistros of Paris, Oskar is a culinary  counterculture to Manhattan's sterile eateries, cranking out fine French cuisine jazzed up by Brooklyn's cultural diversity. With 'El grand Chefe' Octavio Simancas' superb cooking (he's almost Français)Denis Costaz's fine touch from service to brave wine selections (now He really really is French), and owner/artist Charlotta Janssen's severely colorful touch (slightly French due to Napoleon's army invading Bohemia) and a staff from all over 'le monde' to make you feel at home where ever you may be from, we dare to call ourselves: Le Funky French Bistro de Brooklyn...
