Notes: Outdoor Seating

Crowded, high-cuisine Italian restaurant with patio seating in back. Baristas/wait staff use single-group Elektra at the (wine) bar to produce a properly short espresso with a very thin, medium brown crema. Moderate body and a mild flavor of pepper and spice. Served in traditional brown, thick-walled Nuova Point cups.
