Light and refreshing, the tuna tartare at Sofi Restaurant is worth a try. 

The best thing I tried at Printers Row newcomer, Sofi Restaurant (616 S. Dearborn Ave., 312-753-5504), was the eggplant parmigiana appetizer—full of flavor and light as a feather. Then again, the tuna tartare, topped with luscious avocado (above), sparkled with freshness.

The place is loud, though. BYOE: Bring Your Own Earplugs.
