Until now, each new OTTO opening has required re-inventing or renovating an existing structure — from the former hole-in-the-wall that became OTTO’s first slice shop on Portland’s Congress Street to the former Friendly’s in Brookline’s Coolidge Corner.
OTTO’s latest location marks the first time that OTTO has been the first tenant. While many of the other tenants are familiar neighbors of OTTO’s in Boston (Legal, Davio’s, Boloco, King’s, etc.), the venue is something new for OTTO.
MarketStreet Lynnfield, located just 15 minutes north of Boston, is a new, open-air shopping center with a town-center feel. MarketStreet currently houses approximately 70 restaurants and shops, with more opening every day.
Those familiar with OTTO will find themselves at home in the new location. The decor employs many of the familiar OTTO touches: subway tile, re-purposed wood, and the signature OTTO marquee — a beacon familiar to Portland’s Arts District, as well as the three Boston area locations.
One new addition that may appear down the road at other OTTO locations: Puck’s Soda fountain service. Natural, and hand-compounded, Puck’s is hard to beat, and pairs well with OTTO’s pizza.
OTTO is thrilled to be part of the North Shore community, and looks forward to seeing new faces (and familiar ones too).
