A Night at the Sopra
Amali’s Sexy Upstairs Sister

Two hypothetical situations.

1. You’re looking for the perfect spot for you and 19 of your closest friends to do a special April 15 reading of your new IRS-themed musical, Mad Tax Beyond Thunderdome.

2. You’re... not doing that.

Either way, you’ll want to consider Sopra, a sort of everlasting Mediterranean dinner party right above (and from) Amali, open now.

This is an entirely different but similar restaurant to the Mediterranean gem that is Amali. The similarities: charm, location, porchetta. The differences: dinner’s always five courses, the porchetta is much larger, you’re mingling with everyone else in the place, and “the place” is a huge lofted apartment with an open-air kitchen.

Just think of it as a dinner party. Head to Amali at 7:30 sharp, but bear left up the apartment stairs and hit the buzzer. For a half hour, have some wine. Meet some people. Work that appetite. At 8, everyone’s seated at a single wooden table, huge plates of sustenance start showing up, and the “sip until all the bottles are gone” wine policy is introduced.

The bonus here is the versatility—bring a date or a few winsome friends. Or 19 winsome friends. You can reserve the whole joint (20 seats) if you want.

Making it your huge lofted apartment with an open-air kitchen.
