Otto\’s opened their doors to the public about a month ago in a converted house and former bookstore a block off Main street. While they were remodeling the old bookstore into a beautiful restaurant they hosted several pop up dinners around town. The restaurant\’s interior is small and intimate and the patio open and inviting.
The menu is German with other European influences such as Italian and French. The innovative menu changes weekly.
The partially open kitchen gives guests a bird\’s eye view of the chefs at work which adds to the dining experience.
They have a full bar serving unique cocktails, Texas and other craft beers, ciders, a well selected wine list and \”digestifs\”.
All three dishes I tried were perfect but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the Cravlax. The juniper cured salmon is topped with crispy shallots, Dijon-horseradish creme fraiche and hidden underneath is a small square of delicious potatoes gratin. I was pleasantly surprised how well these flavors complimented each other. You can tell they take great care in both their preparation and in developing their weekly menu.
