After Otto's ... drinks/dessert suggestions?
I have reservations for a group for Otto's ... do you have any suggestions for drinks and/or dessert afterwards? I've read here on Chowhound that the people watching at Otto's itself is pretty good (as long as your not downstairs) but was wondering if there was a 'must stop' place nearby.
Thanks in advance!
I concur...best to stay at Otto...I usually go there more for the dessert (Olive Oil gelato)...and they have a huge bar area in front that's always festive and fun. You guys can just move there after your meal to linger over more drinks etc....always a fun place to chill specially in this weather.
<blush> You are probably right ... I was considering Inoteca .... read up on all the reviews, but when I read they didn't take reservations (and we should get there before 7:30 for a decent wait) I pulled the plug for this group of 9 visiting primarily from Chicago.
Thanks for all your help! I appreciate the suggestions!
Just a follow-up ... the 8 others in my group went to Otto's on Saturday night. They actually "lost" my reservation. I told the maitre d' that I made these reservations weeks ago -- probably close to 3 weeks. The place was packed with no room to spare.
The manager came to me while we were waiting and apologized that they lost my reservation. She offered a free bottle of sparkling wine to soothe things over. (we accepted of course)
Suprisingly, they were able to squeeze us a table in 40 minutes.
That being said, we had a wonderful meal. One person said that was the best pizza they've ever had.
and yes, the olive oil gelato was very good.
Thank you all!
