|This is the lone SF installment of a NY-based chain of sandwich shops operated by famed celebrity chef, Tom Colicchio. Located in the San Francisco Shopping Centre, it's a large, airy space consisting of bright, tall windows and long wooden tables and benches. Besides a menu of sandwiches and a few salads, they offer a coffee bar. Unlike the West Coast chefs who oddly fawn over Equator Estate Coffee, Mr. Colicchio's East Coast influence brings out Philadelphia's La Colombe (perhaps its coastal equivalent?). Using a two-group La Spaziale S3 (oddly with a "Made in Italy" sticker prominently displayed on the machine) the pull shots first into unnecessary mini-metal pitchers before pouring them into nice, La Colombe-branded ACF cups. It is filled very high in the cup and has a pale, thin, and milky crema. There's a little brightness to the shot, but also a little ashiness. With a flavor of wood and some mild spices and a thinner body. The flavor is unique enough to save it from being a terrible me-too restaurant espresso, but it's not very distinguishing from basic filter coffee. Good pedigree handled poorly.
