Kensington Grill Reopens!
Keeping in line with the creative Urban Kitchen Group well-rounded experience, Fish Public spotlights their crafty handmade products on their shelves inside the restaurant. To see some of their products that utilize our coffee bean bags, visit our recent posting here.
Reopening two weeks ago, Tracy Borkum has reinvented herself yet again to create an incredibly hip and impeccably decorated seafood restaurant. The new name – Fish Public, represents the concept behind all that is new in this fabulous restaurant.
Fish Public serves fresh, local seafood and delicious cocktails for dinner. The restaurant is equipped with a full bar and an incredible oyster bar for the seafood adventurists. Happy hour from 5:00-6:00 pm features fish tacos and discounted delicious cocktails and draws the fun Kensington neighborhood crowd.
Other delicious seafood options featured on their menu include sol, ceviche, manila clams, and cod tots.
To top the whole experience off, the service is incredible! Shout out to Zack, our friendly server who recommends specialized cocktails to your customized taste and keeps you entertained with his great upbeat personality.
Virtuoso team visited one of our local coffee importers, Elan InterAmerican Coffee, down the street for a cupping workshop.
Cupping is the process of checking coffee beans quality control. First the whole coffee beans are smelled and categorized by aroma/fragrance and the grounds are smelled afterwards. Water is poured onto the coffee grounds after the smelling period and is allowed to steep. Then the cuppers take their spoons and break the coffee grounds. The cupper smells the wet grounds and then sips the coffee to grade the flavor profile they taste.
InterAmerican provides us with coffees from regions like Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Ethiopia.
Care to learn more about the cupping process? Join us on Friday mornings at Virtuoso for a hands on tutorial!
