Review
Very dark Mediterranean fusion restaurant. Copper-topped tables, tapas, candlelight, and open windows in agreeable weather. Bartender/barista works an Elektra machine to produce a thin, light brown crema that just covers the surface and soon dissipates. Thin body, with a medicinal flavor that's a touch sour.
