Scott has worked in the kitchens of some of the world's best restaurants. But after nearly 20 years of helping to turn other people's spaces into culinary destinations, he's opened an unforgettable restaurant of his own here in Bushwick. On this week's episode, one of New York City's rising chefs shares the remarkable journey that's brought him to the community, and unpacks what the future holds for his corner of the neighborhood's electrifying food scene.


Our sincere thanks to Scott, Michelle, Paul, and the Otis team. Otis is located at 18 Harrison Pl, right here in Bushwick, just off the Morgan L-train stop. You can find out more by visiting their website,, or by following them on Instagram at @Otisbk.
