This is a good place to stop and have a drink near some of the theaters. The prices are reasonable and it is a nice atmosphere. Service was very quick and friendly. I had the elderflower gin and tonic and it was quite good.

Came to the Social since the Latitude was super loud and pricey! Had the New Yorker (Hendricks, St. Germain, lime juice and cucumber) Very good drink!!! Had some apps and had a great time watching the bar scene.

We always end up in here when visiting NYC as it is good food at reasonable prices. I love the veggie burger and my daughter the fish and chips - Yum. Do some nice cocktails too
