Jeffrey Sfire and Kevin Avery, two charming New Yorkers, came to Berlin two years ago and founded what was then new in town: the “Palisaden Supper Club”. Once a month, the club opened for 10 people, where Jeffrey and Kevin invited them to their home to spoil them with a dainty three course meal made from regional and seasonal products they found at the markets. It was so successful that the couple decided to go for the real deal and when they found an abandoned space on Graefestraße they knew it was the right time to turn their business into full time: “Little Otik” was born.
