Review
Lunch bar caters to the downtown professional set. Classy but casual: mirrors, flowers, and European posters. Two sidewalk tables in front. Panini, salads, wine, baked goods, and a more detailed dinner menu. Full bar serves espresso from a 3-group UNIC Torino. Thinner layer of a very pale, even crema. Great aroma. Dry, nutty flavor with some mild spice. Generally smooth and not bitter. Served in designer Illy cup and oversized saucer.
