Coffee Pot Trastevere: Cocktails and Sushi Tacos

Coffee Pot is one of those places that is *so cool.*

I tried to go opening night, when they inaugurated their new location in Trastevere.

This… was a mistake.  People were smushed in everywhere and it was obvious that it would take 30 minutes to even make our way to the bar.

We hurriedly executed Plan B and bounced.

I made sure to go back mid-week right when they opened the doors at 7 pm.

Plenty-o space.

The decor, the customers and the menu all give off that same impossibly cool vibe.

This is the place to break out your most hipster chic outfit after you spend hours getting that “I rolled out of bed at 5 pm” look juuuuust right.

The €10 aperitivo includes a drink from the mezcal- and caipirinha-heavy cocktail list.  Or, for €8, you can take wine instead.

From there, you can select one item from their rolls or taco menu.

I was days away from a trip to California when we stopped in and I could not resist the shrimp taco. (Shrimp tacos were pretty much what I was thinking of exclusively at that point).

On second thought, the sushi taco really did look much better so I splurged on a second item.

I can’t really excuse mayo-based sauces on anything billed as sushi.

Next time I would request this senza salsa.

But really, you go for the atmosphere, and not the noms.

Just wear your coolest shoes, pls.
