Otis is on a warehouse-filled block in East Williamsburg, not far from the Morgan L train stop. The space is long and dark, with a big bar and a little dining room in the back that has an open kitchen to the side. There are also a few couches up front, where you can have a drink and hang out. As for the food, it’s American/Mediterranean, but with dishes that are a little more interesting than what you might find at your average pasta/kale spot (the pork shoulder pasta with miso and pesto is a good example of this). You don’t necessarily need to cancel all your plans and head to Otis right now, but it’s a good place to know about if you spend time in the area.

A nice, big Bushwick restaurant with interesting pastas. It's not quite a destination, but it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.
Now that the food and the crowd have improved for the better, Hudson Clearwater gets an improved rating, and more frequent Infatuation visits.
Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.
