Otium is a contemporary restaurant that draws from the rich culinary heritage of Chef Timothy Hollingsworth. The restaurant's name, Otium, has its roots in Latin, a word that is meant to emphasize a place where time can be spent on leisurely social activities. Adjacent to one of Los Angeles' most important cultural corridors -- Grand Avenue -- and next to its newest, most vibrant addition, the contemporary art museum, The Broad, Otium strips away the formalities of dining while focusing on the quality of food, warm service, and relaxed casual ambiance.
Chef Timothy Hollingsworth's 13 year history in Napa Valley, blended with his present roots as an Angeleno living in downtown Los Angeles, sets the stage for an environment of highly eclectic, vibrant, and seasonal flavors.
