I was excited when I read about Coppersmith’s opening. But the more I read, the more wary I grew. Firstly, a restaurant should not advertise itself as ‘a foodie playground’; the community and critics should label it as such. And what of the fake food trucks fixed against the wall of the main dining room? We’ll get to that.
It has been a tiring search. Good coffee in Boston is hard to find, and I was feeling a little defeated. There are plenty of cafes that serve above-average bean, but the third wave coffee scene hasn’t quite infiltrated Boston yet. I haven’t see the passion or the innovation I saw in Berlin. Until now.
