Bakersfield OTR 1214 Vine St. Over-the-Rhine Tel: 513-579-0446 www.bakersfieldotr.com We decided to drop by Bakersfield OTR recently to sample their Mexican-influenced street-fare tacos, two of which are vegetarian-friendly. The restaurant is smack in the middle of the busy, buzzy Gateway Quarter, housed in a lovingly refurbished brick building next to Lavomatic Cafe. Bakersfield OTR The restaurant focuses on tacos, tequila, and whiskey, with special emphasis on Kentucky bourbons.
