Slightly upscale sister to Glen Park's Chenery Park. Small mirrored dining area downstairs next to the kitchen, with more seating upstairs near a fireplace and bar. In the kitchen they use a Grimac Royal Falcon La Vittoria One Group; some coffee consulting has been happening here. They produce an espresso with a slightly thinner, medium brown crema with lighter spots. Flavorwise, it shows some tobacco and mostly pepper and robust spice. It can vary from a typical restaurant espresso body to something a little more robust. Once served in a smaller demitasse, it's now a natural doppio in a taller mug.
