Thank God Meal Ticket is following the opening of BREW so closely. They just posted a link to Aaron Ultimo's blog. Ultimo and wife Elizabeth are the owners of the coffee part of BREW, what they refer to as Ultimo Coffee. (The beer part of the business is owned by Longacre; the coffee part by the Ultimos... together, they form BREW.) Aaron has photos documenting the build-out AND showing off pretty, shiny espresso machines and pastry cases.
I left a comment expressing my interest in checking out the space myself and posting about it. Wouldn't that be cool?
