Wow! It feels like forever since we’ve had a chance to try a new restaurant. After a picture session with our youngest daughter for her senior prom, my husband and I decided to have a date of our own and meet my brother and sister-in-law for dinner at Social 52. None of us had ever been there, so it seemed like a fun food adventure for all of us.
The restaurant seems deceivingly small on the outside. It actually has quite a bit of seating when you include the bar. Speaking of the bar, Social 52 has a respectable selection of craft beers and some fun cocktails. My husband tried a few different brews. You can have samples first before you commit. I stuck with the dark and dusky Moscow Mule: excellent choice.
The menu reveals the owner/chef’s sense of fun. Our seafood dip with pita points appetizer was outstanding. Both my husband and I opted for the Bleu Shroom burger. Let it be noted that I chose the “healthful” veggie side. I still could not finish the whole burger. Delicious, but oh so filling.
My sister-in-law chose the potato crusted salmon with honey ginger glaze.And my brother chose the chicken carbonara.
Dessert was out of the question. If you don’t mind the noise level, it’s a great spot for fun food and friendly, knowledgable service.
