High Life

Take some pleasure in your business at Society on High


That whole Great Gatsby thing is so last month. 
And let's face it, bow ties and top hats were never really your thing. As far as Leo DiCaprio inspiration goes, you're closer to The Wolf of Wall Street — as in, you like your business and pleasure all mixed together.
If so, we may have found a new den for your inner wolf: Society on High, soft open now in the Financial District. 
First, there's the business. The new restaurant from Sorriso and Les Zygomates chef Ian Just fits like a new power suit. Think elegant hi-top tables with street views of the worker bees and a black marble bar you can make your out-of-office second desk on those thirsty Thursday afternoons.
And as far as we're concerned, that means you can sneak a few New Fashioneds (Grand Marnier, Courvoisier, sweet vermouth, and bitters) or one of 10 other original cocktails on the corporate card.
After all, your clients should appreciate the fact that you have excellent taste, right? Prove them correct with an order of pan-fried leek and pork dumplings, then plan the very un-business-like rest of your night over miso-glazed Virginia catfish and "The Elvis," a candied-bacon, caramelized banana, and peanut butter cheesecake fit for a (or The) King. 
If we hear someone howling at the moon later, we'll know who it is.
