With the arrival of Ôter in Melbourne, a curly restaurant name replete with a circumflex designed to strike fear into even the most cavalier of pretend French speakers, hot on the heels of other recent head-scratchers such as Automata and Lûmé, we thought now was a good time to take a moment and go over just how these places are really supposed to be pronounced. We've taken one for the team, asked the question at the source and received the confirmations, playing dumb so that you can play it smart. Otay? Say it loud, say it proud. Or "prood", even.
