"A TASTE OF PUERTO RICO IN THE HEART OF NYC."
I walked into Sofrito NYC I suddenly felt like I was anywhere but Midtown East. The energy, the people, the laughter, the music, and all around JOYOUS vibes were so pervasive that I felt consumed, and little confused. Where was I? My boy casually brought me to Sofrito, with the hope that I could get a glass of sangria and "Spanish food". Little did I know, Sofrito was an experience...and one you should all have if you haven't all ready! To be honest, I felt a little played that I'd been in the city so long without the pleasure or knowledge of such a place.
In short, the food is amazing! You must try the empanadas and the Sofrito Mojito. Delish! Come dressed a little jazzy. because people all around you will be looking and feeling they're best. Sofrito feels like a South Beach, or San Juan hot spot on a very good night. And according to my boy (and newly appointed NYC restaurant muse), Sofrito is always booming.
