Fodor's Expert Review Sophia's Bar & Grill
This formerly old-fashioned and elegant restaurant has morphed into something much more contemporary, but still retained many of its old-world touches. But the kitchen is now open and the music is loud; you'll also find a sushi bar to complement the grill menu offering both fish and foie gras. The young, passionate chef wants each bite to be a sensory explosion, and so it is. Prices are surprisingly reasonable for such a classy environment—there are even gourmet burgers. End your meal with a slice of warm guava cheesecake and an aged port. If you want to smoke, you'll have to take a seat on the outdoor terrace. You can join the young and beautiful at the granite bar until 3 am on Friday and Saturday (1 am the rest of the week). Signature cocktails are as attractive as they are heady. Look for a sign that says simply "SBG".
