As the Columbia Heights neighborhood persists as one of DC’s flourishing residential communities, we look forward to bringing you a unique new restaurant called Social, on the 14th Street Corridor. Situated on the southwest corner of 14th Street and Meridian Place, NW, Social will reside in a newly redeveloped property, once a rundown vacant building.

 

Part restaurant and part living room, it is the perfect neighborhood venue for any occasion. To create an unrushed and comfortable environment, Social does not take reservations and does not require you commit to your whole meal in one order. Shareable menu items are featured in three different sizes starting at eight dollars, allowing the guest to mix and match in any combination. The plates are as interesting as the beverage selection. We are confident that Social will be a welcome addition to Columbia Heights. Social will be open seven nights a week and Saturdays and Sundays for brunch.

 

Diners and critics alike will look forward to items like the Short Rib Sloppy “Joe” Sliders with Port Reduction or the Jumbo Shrimp with Cajun Cocktail Sauce. Brunch lovers will truly revel in the European style brunch offering and a “Bloody Mary” menu featuring international, versions of the traditional.

 

The décor is more reminiscent of a District residence than that of a formal restaurant. The residential feel of the “cellar” and “family room” featuring furnishings from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, is a refreshing change from the overly prevalent modern martini bar and white table cloth restaurant.

 

Partners AJ Guy, Scott Hammons and Tim Korzep have history with successful hospitality projects making their venture a likely combination. Their combined experience in operations and development includes Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, Houston’s Restaurants and the Ian Schrager Company providing the team with a wealth of hospitality knowledge.

We look forward to hosting you and yours!

Kind regards,

AJ, Scott and Tim”
