Sophia’s Supper Club on West 6th Street yearns to make you feel every bit as sophisticated as the Italian restaurant’s namesake, Sophia Loren. Here, you enter the indulgent world of a speakeasy, dotted with plush blue velvet dining chairs and covered by a pewter coffered ceiling. But Sophia’s is also sophisticated in its menu’s perfected simplicity; traditional Italian dishes like Cappellini Al Pesto and Cacio e Pepe showcase the eatery’s house-made and imported pastas, while the no-frills Brick Chicken’s crisp exterior only enhances the thick pan juices flavoring the dish. The 3,700 square-foot restaurant suits a date night best, and, at that, a date night after pay day. The pro move is to come on a night when Sophia’s is open until late; but if you blink, you might miss the fireplace as it slides out to become a DJ booth.
