|Sofia Wine Bar|
Sofia is an impressive wine bar, with a wine menu that features over 100 wines by the glass that rotates monthly. However, don't be fooled. You absolutely must try the food. There is a very good reason for the "Cafe" part of "Sofia Wine Bar, Cafe".
It did not surprise me at all to learn that Sofia is a family business operated by a father & son with the wife/mother running the kitchen. All of the recipes are family recipes, passed down from generation to generation. To do the recipes justice, they use fresh, organic ingredients.
To start the evening, we got to try three items off of their Small Dishes menu. The Stuffed Mushroom & Artichoke kicked things off on a very high note. The richness of the stuffed mushroom was complimented by the tenderness and delicacy of the artichoke.

|Pizza Prosciutto Crudo|
To finish the evening, we had the cannoli- the only item on the menu not hand made in house. These babies are flown in especially for Sofia directly from Sicily. You think that sounds crazy with all the great cannoli made here in NYC? Well make sure to leave room to try one. The dense, rich filling definitely sets these cannoli apart.
