We admit that we are prejudiced. Otto's is one of our favorite haunts, not just for the food but for the personal relationships. Otto's is located at 521 Main St. Covington, KY, phone 859-491-6678. Two steps from the street to the dining room.
Paul Weckman and his wife, Emily, both in their 20's own and run the place. Paul is the chef while Emily and her father, Otto, plus a friendly wait staff handle the front of the house. Everything is cooked from scratch with fresh ingredients.
They have just started serving Brunch, Saturdays and Sundays 10 AM to 2 PM. I can't rave enough.
Marilyn and I were invited, today, to sample and express our opinions. I had the Crab Meat Hash while she tried the Benedict Otto. Other items on the Brunch menu were: B.L.F.G.T, Bacon, Lettuce and fried Green Tomatoes on a toasted croissant with egg and cheese; Breakfast Casserole, Savory Casserole layered with potato, sausage, eggs, onions and 3 cheeses( or a veggie version with Artichokes and Mushrooms), Banana Cheesecake French Toast, Emily's Granola and others. All are served, from the kitchen, not buffet, with a side of your choice.
Prices range from $7 to $9 dollars.
Otto's serves lunch five days a week, with unforgettable Cathy's Tomato Pie a marvelous cheese and tomato pie, which usually sells out early, and dinner Wednesday thru Saturday.
Repeating we are very good friends of the owners, but even if we didn't know them we would return often.
