Chow Is New York Waking up?
The New York Times home page today shows a video about ‘artisinal coffee making’ in New York City - showing carefully pulled ristretto shots, rosetta patterns, and other techniques of the serious barista that make Seattle such a rewarding place to live. For those of us who mourn the absence of Vivace when in Manhattan, perhaps those days are numbered? All I can say is it’s about fucking time!! (for a current dissenting opinion, see this week’s comic on the back page of the paper by Matt Bors)
