EDITED BY ROB PATRONITE AND ROBIN RAISFELD
Week of September 2, 2002

Sosa Borella
Sosa Borella has thrived in the shadows of remote western Tribeca for seven years, feeding the neighborhood an inspired array of lunchtime sandwiches and a hearty Italian-Argentine menu at night. This week, owners Jorge and Stacey Sosa bring that formula to a theater-district triplex outfitted with a balcony, a patio garden, two bars, and a lounge. Expect bruschetta topped with Argentine sausage, garlic shrimp, an Atkins-friendly emphasis on meat, and three kinds of chimichurri, the herby Argentine national condiment.

Q'Ori
As a Park Slope resident and the owner of Loki Lounge, Germán Montaña knew exactly the sort of restaurant the booming Fifth Avenue strip was lacking: "an unpretentious place with a true Brooklyn vibe." So he gutted a bodega and a shoe store to build Q'Ori (Quechua for "gold"), where he offers the well-fed neighborhood a raw-bar alternative to the nearby Blue Ribbon, plus tapas and a menu that roams freely to the Mediterranean, South America, and the Pacific Rim. Prices range from $3 for roasted peppers or bocconcini to $28 for specials. "And we're open Mondays--no one else around here is."
