Sophia’s, which has been open for nearly two months in Salt and Pepper’s old space at 1623 E Passyunk Ave., has finalized its menu, and it’s actually more reasonably priced than we expected given the chef’s pedigree.
Chef Christopher Lee and owner Joe Massara kept the average entree to $21. Not bad. Even better is that the menu actually sounds quite tasty. The menu is sharable, so everything will probably come out when it’s ready, but it’s not all small plates at entree prices. The menu’s breakdown is a bit unconventional, but intriguing with two sections of entrees and a decent selection of snacks.
And on top of the regular weekday happy hour, they plan to offer the same booze specials on Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to midnight: $6 appetizers, $3 beers, $5 wines, $6 cocktails. Thanks for keeping the regular people in mind, guys.

Check out the full press release here with all the juicy details about the concept and more about Lee’s background. To sum up, he was a hot shot at Striped Bass when it received a four-bell review from Craig Laban. Then he moved on to great things in New York.
Meanwhile, we haven’t even eaten there yet. Any early reviews? Are we being duped by the pricing/plate size ratio?
