With over 20 years of experience in the kitchen, Nicholas McCann, now Executive Chef of Society Cafe, has always been passionate about food. Drawing inspiration from his family recipes, Nicholas quickly fell in love with the culinary world at a young age and began his career at The French Culinary Institute in NYC. Since then, he has worked with some of the city’s most acclaimed chefs and restaurants, including working alongside Chef Luis Bollo of Salinas before moving on to become an Executive Chef at TESSA, The Milling Room, and Corkbuzz.

At Society Cafe, Chef Nicholas flexes his creativity by bringing a fresh perspective to the restaurant’s ‘market-to-table’ concept. With a rotating seasonal menu reflective of the city’s local farmers and markets, guests can expect to experience Chef Nicholas’ unique culinary creations alongside its intimate & classic art deco inspired space.

    This restaurant was a great find for Mother's Day brunch, but I would definitely come back for dinner one day. The service was great, and the food was very good, with a wide variety of choices for everyone, and plenty of vegetarian options for non-meat eaters.
    Society CafeResponded on May 13, 2024
    Hi Sue, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. We know that Mother's Day is very important to our guests and we are so glad to hear that we were able to be a part of yours. We appreciate you recommending us and we look forward to having you join us for dinner!

    Food was not hot. Steak was tasty but tough. I’ve eaten here before and enjoyed it much better previously. The lounge with music and happy hour very good
    Society CafeResponded on May 9, 2024
    Hi, We are so sorry to hear that our steak was tough. This is not up to our standards. We apologize that we weren't able to remedy this while you were here because we really hate to hear our guests have walked out without having had a tasty and properly prepared meal. We assure you that our Chef takes our food quality very seriously and is looking into what happened during your visit. We hope that you are able to join us again and we apologize again that we dropped the ball on your meal.
