Society is fun for lunch too, especially when you are so busy playing the slot machines you do not have time to experience a drawn out, formal lunch. Though the items have cute names, the cuisine has a very polished underpinning. Take charred rare yellowfin tuna with wasabi, shiso, and cucumber salad that shows up as a “slider” (surrounded by a bun), or a filet mignon slider served with caramelized onions, horseradish cream, and French fries.
Parents with small children (or — more succinctly — adults who want to re-experience a child’s sense of fun) will appreciate Society’s dinner menu, which offers mac ‘n cheese “bites” accompanied by truffle dipping sauce. Or choose the more upscale “Simple Grilled” entrée like the New York strip or Colorado lamb chops. Personally, I really liked the roast black cod with bacon and chive hash. It reminded me of my Boston days where bacon and cod were a natural pairing at Locke-Ober and other traditional Boston restaurants (after all, there’s nothing quite like the holy trinity of cod, bacon, and potatoes to stave off the freezing winter cold).
You can also drop into Society for coffee and dessert. A grown-up option is the brulee cheesecake. Yet, given the venue, why not be a kid again and order the peanut butter and jelly bar with crunch peanuts, chocolate mousse, and concord jelly. Either way, Society is a very colorful, lively option for a fun-filled meal.
