The first location of Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue is launching today in Chicago. The restaurant, named after American fashion designer Sophie Gimbel, is on Saks' seventh floor, next to the recently opened men's store, The Fifth Avenue Man, and overlooks Michigan Avenue.
Executive chef Ron Aleman, along with Sophie's corporate executive chef Alexandro Reyes, have crafted a sophisticated menu that leans heavily on upscale American classics (jumbo lump crab cake, butterhead lettuce cobb, Fifth Avenue strip steak). There are also plenty of seasonal cocktails and "handcrafted" sodas from Sophie's mixologists (see below for full bar and food menus).
Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue is open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday; and 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sunday.
