Ototo is Japanese for "little brother" and places Ototo firmly in the family of restaurants that brothers Toshi and Yasu Kizaki have already established on Old South Pearl. The long, narrow restaurant has a sleek, intimate front room built around the bar and exhibition kitchen, with big windows looking out on the neighborhood. The original Ototo closed in January 2012, but was reborn in September 2015 with a new menu featuring robata grilled meats, Japanese small plates, noodle bowls and a small raw-bar selection.
