A small bite of the upcoming Cafe review:
Otentic is a clean, bright, contemporary bistro that looks out of place on this fast food stretch of Washington Avenue. Most everything at Otentic is slow: The cooking of food, the movement of workers, seemingly time itself. Yet after you finish off a small flute of complimentary Sauternes, and spread soft butter upon wedges of baguette, you're likely to feel blissfully ensconced within the space -- which will seem very far from the street scene outside. Maybe even an oceans distance away.
