Rather swank, and pricey, restaurant in the Plumpjack family. But the wait staff are good: they know and love their food. In a small kitchen in the back they run a two-group Mr. Espresso machine that pulls grossly overpriced espresso shots from Mr. Espresso pods. The result is a cup with bare spots of thin, medium brown crema and a watered-down flavor of mild spices. A classic example of underwhelming restaurant espresso, complete with a jacked-up price and completely missed opportunity to impress. [CLOSED: Atelier Crenn as of 2011.]
