I went with two Costa Rican friends to Sunday lunch at Sofia Mediterraneo after being out of the country for a year. What a joy. I got my favorite leg of lamb dish, baklava, and two Turkish coffees. My friends got other lamb dishes (also reportedly delicious) and we shared an appetizer plate. We got there right when it opened at noon and by about 1:30 the place was packed. Lots of families with kids, couples, groups of friends. Mehmet was a charming host, as always. Hasan is getting ready to open a bakery - deli (Pandeli) half a block down the street next week. A great restaurant, yes, but much more than a restaurant. I need to come back again when they are having one of their culture nights.

Sofia offers a nice menu inspired by tasty and original recipes from the Mediterranean Basin. The presentation of the food is great, as well as customer service.
