Last night I checked out a preview of Lost Society, opening in a week in the long vacant building on the corner of 14th and U. The building – in which Lost Society takes up the top 2 floors – has been beautifully restored, with exposed brick work, a large amount of chandeliers, a beautiful bar, and a gorgeous roof deck.
Beyond the beautiful design, the food served at the media preview was great. Samples of the menu, my favorites were hands down the steak (it is going to be a “boutique” steakhouse after all), the stuffed lobster, the zucchini ribbons, and the mac and cheese. Appetizers run from $6 to $12, with mains starting at $14 and going up to $29. Heading up the chef is Joseph Evans, formerly at Smith and Wollensky.
My final impressions of the place can be summed up as: beautiful design, good food, and the place is going to be slammed the second it opens. It might become on of those places, as Yogi Berra says “No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.”
