“Paella”
Review of Otro Cinco

Otro Cinco
Ranked #57 of 692 Restaurants in Syracuse
Cuisines: Mexican, Spanish
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 October 2014

Otro Cinco offers several authentic and delicious versions of paella. The seafood paella was loaded with clams, mussels, shrimp and squid. One portion easily feeds two people. There are lots of daily specials and tapas to share. This is one of the best restaurants in Syracuse.

They're that good! So fresh. Place is small, but getting bigger. Staff young, friendly, very professional and attentive. This place is great.

i expected the same menu as the sister restaurant (alto cinco), but was pleasantly surprised by the cool additions and changes. i went for a weekday lunch and the spinach and mushroom burrito was excellent. although i didn't try any on this visit, the tapas menu sounded fantastic. i will definitely be back!

Otro Cinco is the sister location of Syracuse's famed Alto Cinco Mexican Restaurant on Westcott Street. If you like Alto Cinco, you will absolutely love Otro Cinco.

While Alto Cinco is based around Mexican cuisine, Otro Cinco is more Spanish influenced, serving tapas, paella, and other Iberian influenced cuisine. Otro Cinco also has incredible daily specials.

Several menu items are must tries. The patas bravas are perfectly crispy potato wedges served with a delectable paprika mayo. Anything "El Toro," which is Otro's take on flank steak. One of my favorites is the El Toro platter, which is a perfectly seasoned and grilled flank steak served with corn salsa and a tasty steak sauce.

Additionally, the lamb burger is a regularly featured special. You CANNOT miss this. Free range lamb, seasoned with cumin and a hint of mint grilled to perfection and served on a brioche style bun with fresh red-onion and tomato. Several weeks ago, they had mussels on special served in a creamy tarragon broth. Easily the best mussels I've had ... ever.

Otro is currently a tiny restaurant, with seating for less than 20, and it can be a a bit cramped at times. It's an intimate dining experience, but you can't miss it. If you prefer quiet, formal dining, Otro isn't for you on a busy night. It's a little city restaurant with an NYC vibe to it, so if you're one to complain about cramped quarters or a loud environment, the heavenly experience that is Otro Cinco will be entirely wasted on you.

Otro's signature cocktails are a revelation and showcase a variety of interesting combinations and flavors. Finally, Otro's hardworking and dedicated staff ensure a pleasant dining experience.

Bottom line: I can't recommend Otro Cinco highly enough. It's easily one of the best restaurants in Syracuse and, perhaps, the CNY area.
