A couple of weeks ago the magazine offered a peek into the Mercury Dime, Sasha Petraske's latest venture in the East Village. A year after the community board shot down its bid for a wine-and-beer license (not even the proprietor of ultraquiet Milk and Honey can get a liquor license in this town), the venture is now up and running as a coffee shop and though we're dismayed to know we won't be able to enjoy a nice cava here anytime soon, some strong gourmet coffee should perk us up. Anyhow, seems time to take a closer look inside.
