Otium, Where the High Meets the Low

Tim Hollingsworth is another chef with some serious kitchen credentials. He was schooled by Thomas Keller as the chef de cuisine at the French Laundry before opening his own BBQ joint in Studio City. Hollingsworth's new restaurant, Otium, a throwback to the Latin word for leisure, is in the Broad Museum complex in downtown Los Angeles.

From the foie gras funnel cake to the black cod with charred onion, clams and Maggi seasoning, Jonathan Gold says there are a number of thought-provoking dishes to try. Read his LA Times review to get more menu recommendations at Otium.
