What is Somos?
SOMOS means “we are” – a simple, inclusive phrase that inspires us to celebrate the world of Latin cuisines in our own delicious and creative way.
We Are...the universe of Latin food...familiar flavors, new dishes, made from scratch: Chef Placencia and team are thrilled at the opportunity to present an innovative yet very accessible menu including traditional flavors and unexpected mashups of multiple cultures’ cuisines, for dinner, lunch, brunch and late night.
We Are...all the flavors, and the full spectrum of Latin spirits—traditional drinks like margaritas, sangrias, and endless combinations of pisco, rum, cachaça, and more.
We are welcoming, joyful, memorable space filled with life, color, texture, art. Working in close collaboration with architect/designer Michael Groth, acclaimed for his subtle work in Manhattan restaurants, Chef Placencia is excited for guests of SOMOS to find their favorite spot in the restaurant on each visit, be it in The Plaza—the bright front room surrounding the SOMOS bar; The Taverna, a cozy area of banquettes; The Mercado— deep within the restaurant, a section for private events, and where a variety of lively entertainment will be held.
Every guest, at every meal, will find that he or she is SOMOS.
