Overview

Rustic New American fare is the standard at Otium, a hip Downtown spot with changing dishes like seared sea bass, foie gras funnel cake or wood-grilled pork belly, with many of the vegetables grown in the mezzanine garden. An open-air kitchen ties indoor and outdoor dining areas together, while a towering bar showcases house cocktails like the Crabapple (chamomile, verjus, Cognac) alongside pours from concise, global craft beer and wine lists.
