1 | We Wish Our House Looked This Cool
Owners Andrew and Raquel Dorsey, along with design firm Haus of Design, have created a space that feels like a modern Coastal Californian home. There are plenty of Instagram-worthy accents—the neon “Hey Good Looking” sign, the plethora of wicker chandeliers and succulents that will have your camera out before you are seated.
2 | A Team With Tons of Talent Social Huntington Beach
Talented Executive Chef (and Huntington Beach native) Jeffrey Boullt has returned to the team, along with ex-Pacific Hideaway Executive Chef Wyatt Lash to create a menu of California Coastal Cuisine. “Our goal was to create a spot the community could be proud of,” Chef Boullt said, and first appearances show that they are well on their way to achieving that goal.
3 | The “Goodwill Huntington” Social Huntington Beach
Bar Director Grayson Diercksmeier has produced a menu of cleverly named cocktails that will rarely having you ordering your “usual.” The Goodwill Huntington (Amass gin, Aperol, egg white and Cocchi Rosa) features excellent presentation and a great mix of flavors that had us craving seconds. The #Basic (Reyka Vodka, aloe, cucumber and lemon-lime cordial) was anything but its namesake and was the refreshing drink we wish we could pull off at home.
4 | Feels Like a Beach Bonfire Social Huntington Beach
A patio area that seemed like an afterthought in this restaurant’s previous iteration is now the place you will want to sit. Oversized chairs, patio bar service, a large gas fireplace and games like cornhole and Jenga make this restaurant a great place for large-group happy hour and brunch.
5 | Family-Sized Comfort Food
Most of the portions we tried were easily shareable. We especially loved the seemingly family sized fish and chips and the massive Cali Cauli Crunch Roll.
