Omnivore - Social restaurant and wine bar open downtown

A few weeks back I went to eat at French American Brasserie and parked around the corner on West Peachtree Place. As I walked back to my car I noticed a sign in one of the storefronts that said "Social Restaurant". It wasn't yet open, but this weekend I went back and discovered a very cool, funky spot in a truly strange location.

Owned by the brothers who also own Fina in downtown College Park, Social draws on the brothers' Mediterranean upbringing with small plates, cheeses, charcuterie and a few entrees. Pastry chef Taria Camerino (who was working with Top Flr but is now the new pastry chef at Holeman & Finch) will be helping out with desserts in the upcoming weeks. The feel actually reminds me a smidge of Top Flr, but it's more elegant and slick.

We'll have formal coverage in the paper in upcoming weeks, but it's worth checking out now.
