Back Bay, Boston –
Popular with a diverse mix of successful young professionals, corporate executives, and cultured tourists, Sonsie serves up a menu of first class food and seasonal cocktails in a chic and airy environment.
Cozy nooks full of chocolate brown leather chairs and sofas provide space for patrons to chat over signature cocktails, as groupings of small tables in the rest of the single-room space host affable clusters of finance guys and sophisticated couples savoring the restaurant’s classic Mee Krob or a chicken chipotle pizza from the brick oven.
Red-orange walls, elegant orange lighting, and funky colorful portraits create a French bistro ambiance, while flat-screen TVs above the glistening mahogany bar give guests something to look at between rounds of martini-driven flirting.
Wine lovers will want to take the stairs down to the Wine Room, a temperature-controlled glass wine cellar with over two hundred varieties to sample, and an intimate spot for private cocktail parties and the occasional wine tastings.
During the warmer seasons, the French doors in front are thrown wide, sending a small sprawl of stylish guests to the wicker tables outside.
Chic and low-key, Sonsie is the perfect spot where fashionable patrons can find an upscale Sunday brunch, a few post-shopping cocktails, or a trendy night out.
Stylish young professionals, people from the fashion industry, finance and business types, and tourists, mid-20s to late 30s.
Ambient music from classical to alternative. Two flat-screen TVs. Special events include wine and cocktail tastings and cocktail recipe contests. Check the venue’s Twitter feed for details @Sonsie_Boston.
Seasonal fare including New England clam chowder, market seafood dishes, and risotto, as well as seasonal cocktails.
Brunch $2.25–$22, appetizers $2.25–$14, pizza $10.50–$12.25, entrées $15–$36. Beer $5–10, wine $8–$70 for a Sauternes, cocktails $8–$15.
Dressy: Burberry, BCBG, and other designer outfits for women, men in Armani suits, nice jeans, and chinos.
Bustling most nights, though Fridays and Saturdays have the busiest scenes.
