If you are looking for a swanky place to go for drinks or grab some dinner, check out The Cedars Social. On its website, it’s described as:
THE CEDARS SOCIAL, LOCATED AT 1326 SOUTH LAMAR, IS A COCKTAIL DEN AND KITCHEN THAT FEATURES AN ADVENTUROUS LIST OF HANDCRAFTED COCKTAILS DEVELOPED BY ONE OF THE NATIONS LEADING BARMEN MICHAEL MARTENSEN AND A MODERN COMFORT FOOD MENU CREATED BY AWARD-WINNING CHEF JOHN TESAR
The interior is decorated in retro 1920’s style complete with a library nook and features a mondo indoor fire pit. The CEO of the company I’m interning for is partners in the restaurant so we go there for lunch frequently. They have a selective menu and everything is fresh, simple, and delicious! Plus, their lunch plates are very reasonable, especially for a college kid on a budget (only $8 per plate). They have some killer parmesan skinny fries that are a must have and their grilled veggie sandwich is fantastic! The staff is super friendly too and very accommodating. When they give you your check, they place it between the pages of an antique book, which I thought was really creative.
This place is right off the DART line (Cedars Station) and on S Lamar St right down the street from the Palladium Ballroom and Gilly’s. So go grab some grub and go dancing!
