You're not a true aficionado until you've visited barismo. It's a stand-up place, quite literally: no seats, no tables—just fresh coffee, brewed one cup at a time. This type of European-style coffee bar is all the rage in New York, but this is one of the only seat-less spots in our neck of the woods. The engaging baristas are experts at their craft and always eager to talk shop. One might reasonably describe them as “coffee snobs,” so if you can't tell the difference between a latte and a macchiato, we recommend you don't ask too many questions.
