SOCIAL Costa Mesa

I get so excited when I hear that a new restaurant is opening up in Orange County. This week is no different. I just found out that a restaurant called SOCIAL is coming to Costa Mesa on 19th street and it opens on October 2nd.

SOCIAL is a chef and ingredient-focused restaurant that focuses on small tastes, shared plates, weekend brunch, late-night bites, and indulgent entrees, and handcrafted cocktails.

They will be open for nightly dinners as well as brunch.


SOCIAL Brunch Menu

  • The SOCIAL Benedict with Seared, Smoked and Confit of Pork
  •  Pimento Cheese Biscuit
  •  Slow Eggs and Creole Mustard Hollandaise
  •  Banana Fosters Pancakes with Ol’ Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes Caribbean Rum, Louisiana Sugar Cane Syrup, and Farmers’ Market Bananas
  • Duck Confit Hash with Fall Root Vegetables, Holy Trinity, Duck Jus, and Aged Cheddar Mornay.

SOCIAL Fall Dinner Menu

  •  Fall Panzanella Salad with Black Mission Figs
  • Heirloom Tomato, Marinated Olives, Chicories, Point Reyes Bleu Cheese, and Banyuls Vinaigrette
  • Brussels Sprouts with Farmer’s Honey, Sweet Potato Hay,
  • Housemade Tasso Ham, and Hazelnuts
  •  Pan Seared Muscovy Duck Breast with Frog Hollow Pears, Cauliflower Puree, Chicories, and Roasted Shallot Duck Jus
  •  Charbroiled Oysters with Smoked Tomato Butter and Crispy Shallots.

SOCIAL will have a very unique and inviting restaurant design. It will have an open and airy  atmosphere that will encourage social interaction, and the reclaimed wooden tables and leather booths will give a rustic feel to match the cuisine.


SOCIAL Costa Mesa will be open Tuesday to Friday from 4pm-1am, and on the weekends from 11am-1am (closed on Mondays). Dinner will be served nightly from 5pm-10:30pm, with weekend brunch from 11am-3pm. Happy Hour will be Tuesday to Friday 4pm-6pm, and late night bites will be available Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30pm-1am. Sunday nights from 4pm to close will be ‘Industry Night,’ and SOCIAL will offer 50% off select menu items and cocktails for hospitality professionals. Valet parking will be available.
