Little Otik was born out of the Palisaden supper club, a monthly event started by two New York natives who bravely welcomed strangers into their home to serve them delicious seasonal and regional dishes. The club’s popularity rapidly outgrew their Friedrichshain bedroom, so they went and sourced this permanent location in the heart of Kreuzkölln.
Owners Kevin and Jeffrey—chef and front of house respectively—have made it their personal mission to bring their diners local and organically sourced produce. On their menu—which changes daily and is entirely overhauled each month—expect to find titillating fare like citrus marinated beets, crème fraiche and pistachios, wild venison served with braised cabbage and cornmeal dumplings.
The interior perfectly compliments Kevin’s understated yet multifarious creations. It’s a space renovated with discarded gems from all around the city—we’re talking flooring from an old Turnhalle (Gymnasium) and a bar that has a past life as part of the support beams that formed a buildings foundations. The result of their DIY efforts? An undeniably inviting space that makes you feel as though you’re dining in a New England farm house set against coastal scenery instead of the midst of Kreuzberg, an atmosphere that is driven home by the dim lighting, dark wooden tables and cornflower blue ceiling.
