Society Restaurant Review

: Tucked into a hip, renovated Yaletown warehouse amid restaurants and nightclubs, Society draws young sophisticates and the fun-loving social media set. The interior is alluring with dark slate walls, dramatic pink faux-Murano chandeliers, French brasserie chairs, and pearly leather banquettes. Best views of the action are from the upstairs balcony lounge where dressed-to-impress party-goers flock to see and be seen while imbibing handcrafted signature cocktails. A whimsical touch: over-size glasses are filled with frothy pink cotton candy. Contrasting with the subdued opulence, the food is down-home comfort fare with an upscale makeover, from milk shakes with a kick to burgers, baked truffle mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese, and pizzas such as Hello Hawaii with chimichurri, barbecue pulled pork, Cajun shrimp, pineapple, red onion and lime. The wine list is accessible. For dessert, indulge in the over-the-top Junk Food Platter starring cotton candy, chocolate cupcakes, rice crispy squares, donut holes, caramel corn, and an ice cream sandwich.
