We're excited to announce that The Social on 83rd is a BRAND NEW RESTAURANT CONCEPT coming to the Upper West Side SOON! It will be open within the next 30 days! We will announce the opening on Facebook and Instagram so check back often. We got to take a sneak peek at the restaurant in progress and it is everything we have been dreaming of... trendy, upscale, chef-driven, etc! Get ready for an elevated restaurant experience on our side of town that will be great for girls' night out, date night, and happy hour!
We took a look at the menu and it includes Corn and Lobster Bisque, a Charcuterie Board, Pan Seared Salmon, Braised Short Ribs, Pork Belly, Lobster Mac and Cheese Bites, and so much more! They also have Sunday Brunch featuring Avocado Toast, Glazed Donut French Toast, Eggs Bene, and Eggs In Purgatory to name a few! Our mouthes are watering just thinking about it!
We sat down with the owner, Joey Lucidi, to him to ask him a few questions:
How long have you been in business and tell us about yourself and your background?
I have been in the restaurant business for over 20 years and have owned my own restaurant (The Haymaker) for 5 years. I grew up in a restaurant kitchen as my parents owned restaurants for 23 years.
Why did you choose to open your business on the Upper West Side?
I moved up to North Peoria in 2008 and fell in love with the area. I wanted to open my own restaurant and in turn be more involved in our amazing community. The people are amazing and can’t say enough about how much this community means to me and my family.
What is your favorite thing about living and working on the Upper West Side?
I do love driving less than 15 minutes to work! But my favorite thing is how this community comes together in times of need. Whether it’s a victim of a an accident, or an illness of a neighbor, or whatever… this community supports, prays, and help each other in times of need.
Are there any businesses you would like to see come to the area?
Obviously, my wife and I would love more things to do on date night. Whether its more elevated restaurants, or other fun things to do. We are always looking to spend our time and money in the neighborhood.
The Social will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday as well as Weekend Brunch! Is is located at P83 in Peoria behind Giordano's. This is the perfect spot for a bite to eat and a glass of wine before/after a movie!
