Superficially, Sofrito resembles a meatpacking-district club: Ambient hip-hop pulses while the 100-foot bar is backlit by color-changing windows. But there’s a definite barrio vibe here, too. White colonnades are painted with the aphorisms of Spanish Harlem artist James de la Vega, and casual multigenerational groups mix with sleekly dressed couples. Everyone, from abuelas to niños comes for the knockout Puerto Rican menu which features several dishes dashingly presented, and others simply massive: Mofongo al pilón de bistec (savory shredded beef over mashed green plantains), and the house paella (chorizo, chicken, and six kinds of seafood) are both big enough to split three ways.
