First Look: SOMA 107


SOMA 107 — the new hip restaurant on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains — opened quietly over the holiday season, but is having its grand opening next week. I stopped in for a sneak peek yesterday.

The restaurant is very sleek — and very big. There are five distinct areas: the bar, in the photo above, the dining room, a private dining room; a dining room that’s a combination bar area/dining area and a lounge upstairs. The tour and the menus, after the jump.

As you walk from the bar into the dining room you go past a wall of wine:

Here’s the main dining room:

Check out the embroidery on the backs of the chairs:

Here’s that combo room. Looks very comfortable, and cool for a private party, too:

The private dining room:

There is a grand staircase at the entrace. If you ascend it, you come to the lounge, which is open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays:

There is bottle service, and the lounge menu is available late night.

Speaking of the food, chef James Cawley, who used to cook at MacMenanamin’s Grill, has a creative American menu with such dishes as Pig N2, braised pork that’s then shaped into cubes and deep fried, served with chard; artichoke and truffle soup; soba noodle stir fry; and Sapporo-braised short ribs.

There’s also a creative cocktail list and a lounge menu with small plates. Check out all the menus here:

Soma 107 Appetizers
Soma 107 Entrees
Soma Lunch (Soups and Salads)
Soma Lunch (Sandwiches and Entrees)
Soma 107 Cocktails & Lounge

I’ll report back with FP as soon as I’ve had a chance to go during service!
