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 up front and a small dining room in the back—and most of the menu is vaguely Italian. When you stop by, you might see gnocchi with peas, pork shoulder with miso and ricotta, or grilled iceberg lettuce with carrot adobo. The dishes are always a little more interesting than what you'd find at your average pasta/kale spot—and, for some reason, it's never too hard to get a table here. Try this place the next time you need an impressive last-minute dinner option, and sit outside if it's nice out.
