I haven’t met a person yet who doesn’t love indulging in a delicious, buttery biscuit every now and then. Luckily, Big Bottom Biscuit Bar of California fame has opened up shop at Osteria Cotta Monday through Friday from 7-2pm and weekends from 8-11pm. With so many niche restaurants and bars opening up all over the city, touting their own unique specialties, it’s no surprise that this southern delight is joining in on the fun. From gourmet rice krispie treats and specialty waffles to pudding pockets and stores full of mustard, new concoctions and fads are popping up like a 13-year-old girl’s acne. The menu here is all about the biscuit, with both sweet and savory options for customers to enjoy.
Options range from classic and simple — big bottom biscuit with butter and jam, big bottom biscuit with mascarpone and honey and big bottom biscuit with vegetarian thyme gravy — to the more jam-packed — big bottom biscuit with pork ragu and parmesan and the Sea Biscuit, which is topped with smoked salmon, creme fraiche and pickled onions and capers. They’ve also partnered up with Stumptown Coffee to serve patrons a dose of caffeine with their carbs.
Our favorites were the pulled pork and strawberries and cream, but we’d be just as happy with a plain biscuit because that’s how good they are. If you have a hankering for some comfort food in the near future, make sure to check them out.
