Social House - A Pleasant Surprise

kjs | Jan 27, 2008 03:07 PM

SO and I hit SH last week ..haven't hit a strip restaurant for a few weeks... this was on my list ...SO likes sushi and i figured it wouldn't be to busy with the "pretty people" ...it had a decent crowd , but we were seated immediately.

as we figured, relatively loud music, tables kinda close to each other ...at least the couple next to us were sociable and open to discuss the food items they selected ( the drinks too )

we started with miso soup and edamame ( soup so-so...$5, edamame decent ...$5 / bowl )

ordered one of the house specials - yellowtail w/jalepeno ( $20 ) - about 6 slices, very nice

we also shared a citrus chili infused squid - wow - great balance and very tender squid....i believe it cost about $15...again..decent price for a strip flashy place

SO had the scallop roll and the salmon/avocado handroll ( $5 for the handroll...it was a little on the small side but priced right ) the scallop roll was very good...can't remember the price on it...my guess..a.bout $8-$10

I ordered the citrus miso cod - i tell ya for $22 a good deal - it was a decent sized piece ....very tasty...came with a fennel slaw...i thought a great contrast...i still give matsuhisa a slight nod on taste but SH gives them a run for the money !!

had 2 foo-foo drinks ...some sort of tequila sunrise type of drink - it had watermelon and rasberrry...a little too sweet for me...$12 and then i had a pineapple mojito...if i had my eyes covered and drank this, i would've guessed it was a standard mojito...i guess putting the pineapple wedge on the glass makes it a pineapple mojito - it was very tasty and definitely tasted the liquor in this one...also $12....

overall, i was pleasantly surprised by this place - i really thought it would be more about the look and little to no substance ....and i think the pricing is very reasonable for a strip restaurant....
