The team from Pera, the midtown Mediterranean restaurant have expanded to new downtown digs in Soho.

I was invited to review Pera Soho, which is an upscale Brasserie that aspires to treat its patrons to an extensive Eastern Mediterranean menu with a lean on Turkish cuisine.

Pera Soho offers some wonderful deals during the week. They have a Sunday Supper, a Wednesdays Seafood & Jazz Night and a Weekend Brunch.

The menu had some high points. My favorites were the Lamb Adana Cut Roll, the Bouillabaisse, the Smoked Eggplant w/ Garlic Yoghurt and the Whole Roasted Leg of Lamb. I could eat buckets of that eggplant dip – it was yummy! 

Other of their dishes tended to be under seasoned or just plain lackluster (the crab cake was a huge disappointment).

One of the winning features about Pera Soho is its chic outdoor patio which is enclosed for privacy. In good weather, it makes for the perfect setting for a hipster hang out spot where one can sip on cocktails and nibble on signature mezze during their happy hour.
