SOMO SoPhi is our go-to for an early dinner before a concert or game on Broad Street, or a late night drink after the fact. It’s a huge American spot that’s open until midnight every night, and has two separate levels of outdoor seating for when the weather isn’t miserable. It’s probably the most upscale place you’ll find in the area, so if you’re celebrating a birthday or just thought you’d be nice and take your niece and all of her 15-year-old friends to see Justin Bieber On Ice, it’s probably your best bet.
