Sofi

Last week, was the official kick off of Chicago’s restaurant week. It started on the 23rd and ends on February 4th. For those that are unfamiliar to restaurant week, it’s a selection of restaurants in the city and even the suburbs that put together a prix fixe menu at a discounted price. Some restaurants offer lunch and dinner.

Andy and I decided to check out a local neighbor spot called Sofi, in the South Loop. It’s a small Italian joint that’s relatively new.

We didn’t make a reservation, so we sat at the bar. The restaurant was packed. Filled with happy chatter and wines bottles.

Our prix fixe menu was only $33 dollars for a three course meal. I went with this artichoke fontina fondue, Papperdelle with short rib,and apple pie. Andy had the calamari, lobster ravioli, and the Nutella crepe. We split a bottle of this fabulous Chianti and just hung out.

The food was fabulous! My pasta wwas way better than Andy’s his ravioli didn’t come with much sauce, so it was a little dry.

We met the owner of the restaurant. This cute older Italian man. He gave us some complimentary Limoncello.

Overall, a wonderful spot. A great place to go to if you’re trying to get away from the tourists and eat quality food!
