While we’ve known for a while here at the Weekly Volcano, last Wednesday it became official.

Creig Kostoff, (not pictured) owner of Sofia Bistro, has purchased and taken control of the Mandolin Café. The change will affect both restaurants, but only slightly.

In terms of the Mandolin Café, the only changes long time customers should expect is an upgrade in food and service. Changing the music, atmosphere, or vibe of the Mandolin isn’t in Kostoff’s plans.

“We’re using the kitchen (at Sofia Bistro) to upgrade the food,” says Kostoff. “We want to increase the level of service and do a better meal. We’ll keep everything else the same.”

Part of that better meal at the Mandolin involves a pastry chef, who â€" working from Sofia’s kitchen - will fill the Mandolin’s coffers with all sorts of fresh baked delights like scones, muffins, croissants and quiches. Fresh soups are also in the Mandolin game plan.

Kostoff says customers can also expect an upgrade in the Mandolin’s wine and beer, and that wine tasting events will continue at the cafe.

The only change that should be noticeable at the Sofia Bistro will be at lunch. While Sofia had offered a lunch menu during the day, they’ve ceased that operation to focus on dinner- a change that’s been in affect for over a month. Sous Chef Jaron Witsoe has been brought in to help with the seven nights a week dinner operation. Kostoff calls Witsoe both young and extremely talented.

In all, it’s nothing but good news for stomachs all around Tacoma.
