Upon Blossom's closing, Soho's menu will earn some new additions, refugees from the Blossom menu. Among them will be long-time favorites like the chicken artichoke salad and the Dinsmore, a sandwich piled with corned beef, pastrami, Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Russian Dressing grilled on pumpernickel bread.
"We're alive and well at Soho's. And a lot of the food and the staff will travel from here to Soho's," he said. "There's a lot of Blossom meals, lunch and dinner, that are going to transfer over."
Sohovich said he was heartened by the public's response to the news of the restaurant's closing and suggested that the place would rise again, in some form.
"The public has been very, very, very supportive of us. It was kind of a little bit overwhelming. I'm sure the Blossom will be back -- this is just a temporary setback -- whether it's either with me or with somebody else."
His most immediate concern, he said, was keeping the paychecks coming for the staff that contributed to the restaurant's long and popular run.
"We will have everybody jobs," he said. "Before it's all said and done, I will have everybody jobs, somewhere."
