Great patio dining, a quality bar, and snooty hostesses. Many tables with a pleasant d�cor. Live jazz evenings. Espresso is served with a moderately thick, medium brown crema. While they buy heavily into the Illy system (down to the Illy logo cups), they make more out of it than most - and far better than the accompanying lemon rind suggests. Nice herbal and mild spice flavor - no smoke or bitterness. Some hints of cedar. Solid effort from a restaurant.
