Dinner

Dinner

A new menu each month, and piatti del giorno every evening, give you new choices every time you sidle up to a Sociale table. Pair an Italian glass of wine handpicked by our lauded sommelier and take in the season on the patio or in a nook of the dining room.

Northern Italy informs every facet of Executive Chef Tia Harrison’s menu. That means there are wintry comforts like pappardelle with duck and a crack of fresh black pepper and Wagyu beef bavette served with fennel fries and salsas rosa and verde. But it is also a less literal attachment to the culinary region. It means that while our menu pays its respects to old classics it also creates new classics with fresh ingredients, simply prepared to their most generous expression. It means that food is sourced close to home. This Italianate kitchen also sources whole animals from local ranches and butchers them in-house (Chef Harrison is, after all, a world-famous butcher). Sociale’s kitchen knows flavor starts in the ground.
