Sophia’s in Kenmore plans to add dinner to its family-friendly breakfast and lunch offerings, but it’s going to start slow.
“I’m going to stick to the basics, meatloaf, meatballs in sauce. I’m going to try to keep it simple, because I’m going to do a lot of the cooking myself,” said owner Sam Doherty. “Maybe four or five apps, five or six specials, some sandwiches and salads, and see where it goes from there.”
Doherty is already busy. His place at 749 Military Road, Kenmore, was a neighborhood favorite even before Guy Fieri put Sophia’s on the national eater map in 2010.
Starting April 1, Doherty said, the plan is to remain open for breakfast and lunch, add dinner, available until 8 or 9 p.m. Sophia’s already has a bar, serving up Bloody Marys garnished with crispy bacon and other drinks.
"I don't think I'll be happy if I don't try it," Doherty said of adding dinner. "I know what good food is. I don't do gastronomy cooking or anything like that, but I know what I want to put out will be good."
