Akron’s Oasis Surf & Turf chefs to cook seafood in North Hill


The last time they visited the kitchen at Akron’s pop-up restaurant in North Hill, the trio were trying out the menu of a seafood restaurant they were hoping to open.

Now that the Surf & Turf Oasis is up and running on North Howard Street, they’re back to celebrate having their own brick and mortar place and hopefully the word about their place.

Gary Patterson Jr, Joe Mercury and Brandon Holman said the menu they came up with was the product of a shared love of food and tasting dishes from trips across the country.

Like the restaurant, the NoHi Pop-up’s menu will feature the Oasis Surf and Turf Box, which features snow crab legs, shrimp, chicken sausage, corn, red potatoes and lemon on a bed of jasmine rice. The last time the trio were at NoHi was in February.

There will also be wings, a catfish dinner, a basket of shrimp and a jerk chicken sandwich topped with coleslaw and served on a Hawaiian bun.

The entrees include wings and catfish nuggets.

They are also planning to offer a delicious-sounding “soul roll” appetizer that will consist of roasted corn, black beans, greens, cream cheese and Asiago wrapped in an egg roll and fried. You can also add chicken, shrimp, or opt for a Philly-style roll with a Philly beef steak.

The North Hill Community Development Corp. took over the kitchen of the old Mexico City restaurant – before that, the Office City Tavern – at 778 N. Main St. and once a week invites an aspiring chef to take over and offer food for the weekend.

The Oasis Surf & Turf kitchen will be open for business for a single weekend from noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, with all take-out only in the midst of the pandemic.

To order in advance, call 234-231-1645 or visit www.northakroncdc.org/nohi starting Wednesday.
