Free Food Wednesday at the new Sophie’s Cuban “Celebration”!!!

The day has finally arrived!  I first posted a picture of the “Coming Soon” sign in October, and now, it’s six months later, and Midtown North is finally getting its branch of Sophie’s Cuban (56th St. btw. 5+6th)…


The official grand opening is on Thursday- but the “Celebration” is today (3/14) from 11am to 2pm.  They’ll be giving out a free lunch to everyone who comes in… a “sampling” of all their best dishes.  The seating area in the back will be open, and has about 20 tables (but I’d plan on taking it to go).  See you in line!!!  (Come back later today for live photo updates from the line…)


  • Report from Sophie’s:

    Got there a few minutes before noon, line not too bad. I had the picadillo (ground beef stew) w/beans and rice. Delicious, and with a nice tang from the capers. My wife, who’s a pickier eater, had the spicy grilled chicken breast w/rice, and said it was very moist and flavorful, and not too hot. On the whole, a winner.

    Line was a bit down the block at 12:50, but it was moving quickly. Place was very well staffed, and handling the crowds very well.

    Regular menu looks good, with entree and two sides for $8, and different specials each day. Definitely a come-backer.
