As a first time patron, I was awe struck in how cool / hip the setting was. I can see in warmer months how the garage door side porch is a great draw. There's a side bar that is super unique with cult movies showing on Mondays. And the farm to table meal(s) was delectable. There was only one drawback: it was freezing inside. Apparently, the manager/owner maintains that "heat rises" (as explained to us) and that's why it was so cold in there. It made for a difficult time enjoying the place completely. I hope they revisit this shortcoming...

Great experience. I came here with my friend and we have dinner alltogher. Very nice place, I loved the invarioment. The food was good, I really love the fact that the menu is very small, so like this they can take care better of the dish. Overall i' m looking forward to came back here again. You have to really come here ones, you will not regret it.

It is a beautiful restaurant and the service was outstanding. Upon arrival, our waitress was ready to explain the menu...which was really complicated. It took us awhile to try to interpret what each drink was as none were familiar.
I am all for unique but this was almost too unique. I settled on a non menu drink of Jameson with ginger beer as they don't have ginger ale.(yes a bar with no ginger ale) Not the best of combinations. Our waitress was great at explaining the food menu. We choose the small plates option and ordered 5. To be honest- 2 per person to share would be plenty. All were outstanding except the chick pea pancake. Skip that one.

Very disappointing at Otus Supply.
Stopped in for dinner. Prices seem reasonable, until they bring the food to the table. VERY small portion, more like a small appetizer not a meal unless you get 4 or 5 small plates at $10-$15 each. Bread n Butter $5. Large list of draft beer, but only 3 taps could be seen at the bar.?. They got the beer from the back area, may have been from a bottle. Disappointing! Beer list had no explanation of the beer as most places do. . . . . All white staff out front but for one black girl at the entrance. All white girls waiting tables and bring food, clearing tables, oh, one white guy. A couple black guys could be seen in the kitchen. Not a fan, won't be back.

Really awesome space and design. The walls are decorated with upcycled building materials . Its a very large space with lots of people but the tables are really close together so you dont have too much privacy. You can hear everyone's conversations within 5 or 6 feet away. The menu consists of pizza, small plates and a few entrees, as well two full pages of alchohol. We had a pizza and 3 small plates. The pizza crust was nice and airy and thin. The toppings were sausage, tomato , calabrian chili and parmesan cheeses and it was called papa caldo. It was pretty ordinary except for the nice aromatic spicy kick from the calabrian chili. We had the beef tartare which was very delicious and very good quality meat. We also had the mafalde which was this interesting looking pasta with pork , whole hazelnuts. It had a nice flavor and an unexpected crunch. Never had nuts in pasta but it was really good. The last thing we had was a flatbread made from chickpea flower with greens and herbs and a yolkey egg. It was nice and fluffy and had a nice herby flavor. The food was fresh with interesting flavors and filling. The only issue was that there was alot of gluten on the menu so if you have an intolerance your choices may be limited. Reservations are only accepted in advance not same day. We walked in on a friday night around 8:00 and had to wait 20 minutes for a table.
