The most famous of all of Lina Stores Soho Restaurant, and I’d agree with me, is the Falafel Restaurant. With its brightly colored mosaic tile roof and gentle weathering, you can’t help but be captivated by the graceful lines of the building. It will set the tone for the rest of the space as well.
As you stroll through the space, you will see that this is definitely not just a sandwich joint. It has two levels, which mean you can walk down, to reach the deli counter and get food, or take a nap on one of the three comfortable lounge chairs. The ceiling fans bring in a nice breeze, and the tables and chairs are all constructed from native forest-toned teak, adding a really nice feel to the space. You don’t have to worry about leaving all year long to enjoy lunch because the bar features room enough for a couple, or several people, to sit comfortably and order their favorite meals.
It doesn’t matter what kind of food you enjoy because the menu is full of Mediterranean cuisine; not just pasta and pastries, but also fish, sausages, fresh ingredients, salad, fresh bread, and a lot more. For an inexpensive dinner, you can grab a pizza from the bar and sit outside, while enjoying a glass of wine. You’ll get a pasta experience, but with the flavor of the fresh ingredients.
The mixed grill that comes to your table to cook your main course is even crafted from teak, so you can rest assured that it will last. The fondue station offers a variety of delicious flavors to choose from; my favorite being the Chilean red pepper fondue.
For your entree, you can choose between a gourmet burger with teriyaki sauce, or try the new lamb belly. For a little something different, why not try the grilled octopus? If you’re up for it, you can try the seafood platter that comes with koi, scallops, and scampi, or the smoked salmon tartare. Whatever you decide, you will love every single bite.
This is not the restaurant review of every single dish available at the restaurant. Instead, we’ll focus on the excellent pasta bar.
The quality of the pasta and the way it was prepared were absolutely fantastic. From the simple to the flavorful, you can’t go wrong with anything you order. You can also tell that they put a lot of care into making sure that every single ingredient was as fresh as possible.
The dessert menu featured lots of tasty items like cookies, mousse, and sorbet, which were all made from freshly baked bread, Umano mozzarella, and even homemade spumoni cocktails. There was no shortage of recipes for specialty cocktails, and the champagne was spectacular.
It’s only a restaurant review, and we shouldn’t expect to visit this level of cuisine for every meal. However, you should expect a few new things every time, like the octopus dish, which was a unique spin on the traditional octopus soup. While the classic octopus with garlic and black garlic may be a familiar dish, it still was a unique twist.
It’s a good thing they have specials daily, so you can come back to try another dish. The sweet and spicy nachos were absolutely delicious, and I would recommend everyone to try them.
The next best thing is the Italian sausage, which was so flavorful and so delicious that I almost wanted to order another dish to take home and make into a meal for myself. While the pasta sauce was excellent, the sausage really gave it a nice flavor.
If you go to lina stores restaurant review, you can find this great Italian restaurant has a well-dressed, but affordable fare. that’s an easy place to order great food.
