Coffee at City Provisions
Cleetus Friedman, the owner of City Provisions, is a man who makes his own bagels, cures his own pastrami and harvests his own honey. So when we tell you the best thing we ate or drank at his deli was mug after consistently brewed mug of alarmingly rich, complex coffee, you’ll know this is one hell of a cup. Two more caffeine concoctions/addictions got us through summer: Pure Black, the deep, dark, bottled cold brew from newcomer La Colombe, and the Wormhole’s Rocket Sauce, the most refreshing iced tea known to sticky summer days, boosted with ginger syrup and fresh lime juice.
