New Restaurant to Open in place of Social
The Getaway, a tavern-style restaurant, will open this weekend in the space where Social used to occupy at 14th and Meridian Place NW. Last Friday, they had a soft opening with drink specials and a limited menu. They’re planning on forming a Getaway softball team and will feature American craft beers from Port City, Lagunitas, Bell's, Stone, Dogfish Head and Bear Republic. Chef and part owner, Ismeal Otarola, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Orlando Culinary Academy, will be manning the kitchen. Their menu will include five different kinds of sliders, weekend brunch, and mac & cheese featuring smoked gouda, sharp cheddar, gruyere, and manchego and lobster. According to owner Jeremy Mintz, they’ve been planning the grand opening for four months and have hired most staff.
