Best Espresso drinks in Manhattan...so far
Okay, thus far my picks in order for best lattes/cappuccinos:
1) Joe the Art of Coffee (nothing else seems to compare)
2) Stumptown (newly opened in Ace Hotel)
3) 9th Street Espresso
4) Taralucci E Vino
5) Everyman Espresso
Honorable mention: Abraco, Third Rail, Local
I was not that blown away by Grumpy, Think, or Jacks. Although the drip is good at all those places. I hear good things about, but have not yet tried, Gimme or Via Quadrono.
This is of, course, totally subjective, but I'm curious if there are any others I should know about.
lavazza pushes the shakerato all over italy last summer
here is my recipe
then put a huge spoonful of a great jam or preserves
then let the fruit dissolve
then put into a martini shaker full of ice
then shake vigorously
i drink it straight from the shaker
a varaition is to pour into a tall glass half full of seltzer
cream or milk is an obvious additon but i prefer black
and certainly no0 sugar
My top 5:
1. Everyman, when Sam or Bryce is working
3. Everyman, when anyone else is working
4. 9th Street
5. ??? . . . looks like I need to go to Taralucci
I agree that Grumpy is better for drip than espresso.
I have to dissent on the Roasting Plant. It strikes me as a gimmick that doesn't deliver very good coffee.
