The good news, however, is that there are now two vegan options, clearly labeled, on their menu. For an appetizer, there is Baba Ghanoush, the eggplant-based Mediterranean sidedish. Social's Baba Ghanoush is creative in that the eggplant is sliced (not mashed or ground up) and mixed with parsley, garlic and olive oil. The vegan version of the dish uses thinly sliced cucumbers. This was a creative appetizer.
For an entree, they have Vegan Tacos (labeled that way on the menu). There are two corn tortillas filled with a mushroom mixture with garlic and onion deglazed in a white wine sauce, black beans, cilantro and salsa. The tacos are served with a side of tater tots (always one of our favorites). The tacos were creative. The dish is heavy on minced mushrooms, different than most vegan tacos that we have had.
We view this review as good news. For our last review, we noted: "This is a cool place to visit, though at first glance the menu isn’t very vegan-friendly. Nothing on the menu is vegan though we have found that they are generally willing to modify things." The word vegan is now used twice on the menu. We like to celebrate progress!
As before, Social has a nice mixture of rotating craft beer and a large number of bourbons.
