Otto Moser's Restaurant Review

: Otto Moser’s was, until a few years ago, the longest continuously operating restaurant in Cleveland. It played host to all the old showbiz greats who performed in town --- Bob Hope, Helen Hayes and baseball players to boxers. Perhaps the restaurant should have stayed where it was on East 4th, in what is now the well-attended Gateway district; the venue’s current space has little of the former’s charm. What it still has, however, is no-muss, no-fuss food. Start with the soup du jour, as it's homemade and served piping hot, then sample a specialty sandwich such as the Chicken Parmesan or the bacon burger. Sides are all homemade, not always good, but homemade. Desserts are limited. A succinct bar menu adds to the atmosphere.
