Java pro Rich Nieto teams up with bar buff Richard Boccato (Dutch Kills) to expand his buzzy offerings to booze with his first café-cocktail bar, the third location for coffeeshop Sweetleaf. The 45-seat spot—outfitted with weathered-leather banquettes, faux-distressed walls and counters refurbished from old doors—plies fresh-baked staples, like blueberry-streusel coffee cake and chocolate-oatmeal sandies, as well as brewed cups of Stumptown and Ritual beans. At 6pm every night, baristas turn the counter over to bartenders, who pour out cocktails made with hand-cut ice, house-made java liqueurs and iced coffee. The caffeinated quaffs include sips like the Rocket Fuel (a New Orleans–style chilled coffee) and Voodoo Child (a Vietnamese cold brew with condensed milk).
