Re-opening: What we are doing to keep our customers & employees safe

The safety of our customers and employees is of the utmost importance to us. As we begin to reopen our shops for dine-in and outdoor patio seating, we’re taking some additional steps to keep everyone safe and healthy. In addition to being in compliance with local and state mandates, we are also taking the following safety measures:

  • All customer touch points [doors, handles, counters, fountain machines, napkin dispensers, condiment holders, etc] are sanitized every 30 minutes.
  • One dedicated employee is in charge of sanitizing tables and chairs after each use.
  • Employees will receive temperature checks at the beginning of each shift.
  • Employees will continue to wear gloves and masks.
  • All tables are spaced 6 feet apart. Where that is not possible, we will stager seating so guests are able to maintain social distancing while dining with us.
  • No customers waiting in the dining room. If the room is at capacity, customers must wait outside.
  • Our mobile pickup and contactless delivery options will continue to be available.

Furthermore, we will have a QR code on every table that will direct guests to our menu. Simply scan the QR code with the camera on your phone, and our menu will pop up. We will also offer single use menus for those who prefer physical menus.

Saco OTTO to open July 5!

IMG_1696We’ve been busy putting the final touches on our new Saco location, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be open for business on Thursday, July 5 (dine-in and take-out only). We will begin delivery operations on Monday, July 16.

Located on 779 Portland Rd, Route 1, adjacent to the Cinemagic & IMAX, this spacious 80-seat location will feature all the OTTO bells and whistles, and then some:

The Saco opening comes hot on the heels of our 9th birthday and the rollout of our new menu, which features 6 new pies, 2 new salads, Everything knots and (at select locations) Hand-cut fries, sliders, baked mac & cheese!

We are thrilled to be serving the best in local and regional craft beers. While there are certainly more great local breweries than we have taps, we will be featuring a rolling variety of breweries over the coming months, starting with:

  • Barreled Souls
  • Banded Horn
  • Austin Street
  • Rising Tide (Oscar Tango Tango Oscar, our spring collaboration brew!)
  • Lone Pine
  • Foundation
  • Maine Beer Co.
  • Gneiss
  • Night Shift
  • and MORE…

We can’t tell you how thrilled we are to become part of the fabric of beautiful, historic Saco, Maine.  Since we announced our plans, we’ve received an outpouring of wonderful messages, calls, emails, and texts, from Saco residents, town employees, and businesses owners. We can’t wait to finally call each of you neighbors.

 

OTTO’s Portland Expansion at 574 Congress Street Is Now Open For Dining!

OTTO 574 Congress StreetOTTO is pleased to announce that our new expansion to our 574 Congress Street slice shop is now open for dining.

While remodling of the former Wild Burrito storefront was underway this year, curious Portlanders peeked in as they strolled past, wondering what exactly was being done. After taking in the repurposed mahogany, subway tiles, and minimalist lighting, It didn’t take folks too long to realize that OTTO was simply becoming more symmetrical.

In April 2010, the original OTTO slice shop opened a sister shop, Enzo, directly next door. While Enzo had its own storefront entry, internally she and OTTO were conjoined. Enzo provided OTTO with much needed seating, and more importantly, an intimate bar setting with an array of fine wines and craft beer.

In the spirit of OTTO and Enzo, the 574 Congress expansion maintains the same cozy, minimalist aesthetic, while adding enough dining space (approximately 40 seats) to accomodate families and large parties, and a spacious, gorgeous bar perfect for dining, unwinding after work, or meeting up with friends and family.2012-11-28_18-38-09_999

The 574 Congress location not only expands OTTO’s capacity, it expands its menu. Guests will notice an expanded wine list, six additional taps of delicious craft brews, as well as OTTO’s signature salads and desserts.

Hours are 11:30am to 11pm Sunday through Thursday and 11:30am to 12am Friday and Saturday.

Come by. We’d love to see you.
