The Social House


Last visit: April 27, 2008

Yeah it is. It’s social. It’s nice. Decorum is that of a small quaint house. The food is good.

I’d heard about The Social House only because I drove by one day and saw a new restaurant being built on Howell Mill. I forgot about it, mostly because I have a nasty I-Hop across the street that I frequent when I’m very hungry and not picky about what I eat. But then my friend Ike called me early this morning and invited me to join him and his new girl for brunch. Deal.

We supposedly had reservations but b/c we mentioned having an additional party member, we were back burned for 30 minutes. Was it worth the wait? I think so. Albeit the worth, here are a few hit and misses:

1. Waitress was nice

2. Took 10 minutes too long to take our order

3. Food came out relatively quickly

4. Food was great, for the most part, though Ike was completely disillusioned when his shrimp and grits did not parallel the same order from the day prior. He did something I would do under extreme circumstances–he had them remake it to ultimately not like even the 2nd one and order something totally different. I had a spinach and mushroom omelette with goat cheese that that was cooked to my perfect request.

5. The blueberry pancakes are something to talk about.

6. Decor is very intimate and inviting, unless you’re sitting at the main window table, facing outside; you face the deck build-out with an ugly backdrop of the overpopulated and industrialized Howell Mill Rd. AJC, WSJ and other national papers are available for reading. Great jazz fill the speakers.

Overall, Lorenzo, also claiming Harlem Bar and Rare, two well trafficked urban resto’s, has conceptualized a great meeting spot for any day of the week. They pride themselves on offering plain ‘ole good, sustainable food. And, more importantly, your requests will be honored.

They just need to work on more wait seating and a bigger entrance.
