Get SOCIAL in Costa Mesa
I was shocked to find out that they have only been open a couple of months because the restaurant was full. Once we were seated and greeted by our server she went over the philosophy of the food served at SOCIAL One of their main philosophies is to keep everything simple by creating unique food combinations with exceptional flavor. All of the dishes prepared in their kitchen are from scratch and prepared only with the freshest and finest ingredients.
Our server encouraged us to be “social” by having a wide variety of shared plates on the menu. Take your time sipping on craft cocktails while ordering what your taste buds desire. The Gin Cucumber Dementa and Moscow Mule cocktails were simply refreshing and savory.
We started our savory dinner with the Pimento Cheese Appetizer, which comes with aged Oregon cheddar, bacon jam and grilled bread.
My favorite shared plate was the Cauliflower Gratin with aged cheddar, red Fresno and brown butter crumble.It tasted just like homemade macaroni and cheese only made with cauliflower vs. noodles… total satisfaction without the guilt or calories.
The main dish,the Akaushi Skirt Steak, was to die for. It had red fresno chimichurri, pommes puree, bone marrow butter and garlic chips. This steak is served medium rare and the bone marrow butter brings out the rich flavors. This steak was so extremely delicious that my husband had to order his own because I wasn’t willing to share.
When planning your next date night, make reservations at SOCIAL especially if you live in one of our Camden Communities located in Costa Mesa. You’re guaranteed to have a fun night with delicious food and refreshing unique cocktails. SOCIAL Costa Mesa is located at 512 W 19th Street in Costa Mesa CA.
