A Foodie’s Tasting Heaven at SOCIAL Costa Mesa

Posted on July 31, 2016 | 9:15am

 

SOCIAL Costa Mesa is one of the hottest foodie spots in SoCal, a rustic American eatery with a modern twist. Calling themselves “new-American inspired,” SOCIAL really focuses on fresh ingredients sourced locally in California by their inventive Executive Chef Brian Jenzer and Chef de Cuisine Daniel Chavez, not to mention mixologist David Valiante at the helm of SOCIAL’s incredible craft cocktail list. One of SOCIAL’s owners, Andrew Dorsey, invited us and a few other lucky guests to sample the new menu, and rolled us out about 3 hours later.
