In a small space with pale wood and subdued lighting typical of a sushi restaurant, you wouldn’t expect to find a pizza throwing pro or burgers aflame on a grill. But it’s Soma’s contrasts that give the restaurant—and its “creative American” cuisine—personality. While you wait for your dinner, order the pizza crust (cut into rustic strips) with hummus, and instead of the usual Merlot and Chardonnay by the glass, Soma serves a Bergerac and a Riesling. Appetizers are as varied as Brooklyn crab cakes and chile-spiced pierogies with tangy lemon sour cream. Regular-sized pizzas to share or individual 10-inch pies can be topped with candied pecans or salsa in addition to the usual choices (pepperoni, sausage, etc.). Good burgers are a Soma staple, and toppings like chipotle mayo or balsamic onion relish can just as easily top chicken, steak, portabello, or pulled pork as they can beef. While not quite the “dose of euphoria” the name alludes to, Soma is certainly exceptional.Recommended Dishes
