Sofra’s fourth-generation Turkish chef assembles a menu of authentic Turkish cuisine updated for the modern palate. After a long night of trimming the neighbor’s hedges into grazing cattle, customers can refuel with mashed zucchini, carrots, and potatoes flattened into pancakes ($9.95) and topped with yogurt and tomatoes. Adventurous diners can sample breaded and fried calf’s liver ($7.95) before savoring char-grilled, marinated cubes of lamb shish kebab ($18.95) or turkish ravioli stuffed with ground beef and topped with garlic-yogurt sauce ($14.95). Chicken chops ($15.95) lounge atop a bed of rice, char-grilled tomatoes, and green peppers, looking as appealing as a cushy mattress stuffed with hundred-dollar bills. Sofra does not charge a corkage fee, encouraging guests to bring their own libations.
