Tiramisu at Sofia


Looking for an elegant way to get in a dinner before Broadway? Why not try Sofia, the new northern Italian restaurant on W. 48th St. Opened just this past Fall, Sofia combines traditional Italian offering with modern decorative touches: stone floors, fabric and leather banquettes done in coffee and cream colors, and contemporary gold frosted chandeliers create a royal, yet relaxed feel to the spacious eatery. The menu includes not only classic Italian staples such as prosciutto di parma, mozzarella with tomato and basil and a selection of Italian cold cuts and assorted cheese for starters, but also offers a raw bar that includes a delightful “lobster bouquet”: lobster, shrimp, lump crabmeat, oysters and clams. A main course of flat noodle pasta in a lobster sauce paired nicely with a tender Dover sole, and a dessert of  a light, classic tiramisu simply hit the spot, washed down with a frothy espresso. Service is warm and attentive and with the theater district just blocks away, another great choice for pre-theater dinner is born.
