Fodor's Review

Don't look for a sign that read's "Sophia's"; it reads simply "SBG." And don't ask for Sophia; she doesn't exist. "Her" high-profile restaurant is actually owned by a prime Dominican family that appreciates fine food, wine, and art. Prices are surprisingly reasonable at this elegant, fairly formal venue (dress accordingly). Gourmet burgers and creative sandwiches go for around $12, but main courses can get quite expensive; sides are extra. To keep expenses down, order an innovative appetizer such as Japanese-style miso eggplant or a ceviche of shrimp, octopus and calamari, accompanied by a memorable bottle from the extensive wine list. End your meal with a slice of warm guava cheesecake and an aged port. One can relax in this classy environment, in an armchair, even a Bali bed or take a seat on the outdoor terrace If so inclined, you can join the young lovelies and the guapos (handsomes) at the granite bar 'til late (3 am on Friday and Saturday and about 1 am the rest of the week.) Kitchen closes about two hours before the bar.
