An elegant atmosphere intertwined with an innovative personality clearly define OTOTO restaurant. Star Fine Foods recently hosted a dinner at OTOTO to promote the Star company and the expansion of their business into the Denver market. A five-course meal using Star olive oil as the foundation from which to expand upon, the OTOTO chefs prepared each course combining a variety of ingredients and textures tantalizing the mind. Star Fine Foods is a company that produces olive oil as well as vinegar, olives and other specialty products, many of which are certified gluten free. The company came to Denver and I had the pleasure of attending this dinner and OTOTO restaurant was kind enough to accommodate an entirely gluten free dinner especially for me. Courses included grilled zucchini wrapped in goat cheese, fresh halibut, and a pork chop encrusted with pistachios. My personal favorite was the olive oil cured ahi with fresh orange segments, confit tomatoes, and avocado. The sweetness of the oranges combined with the smooth texture of the avocado was to die for. The quality of the food along with the superb flavor of Star olive oil made the evening one to savor. Star products can be found in many local grocery stores throughout the Denver area as well as across the country. Be sure also to stop by OTOTO for some amazing and elaborate dishes as well.
