Society, 1419 E. 15th St., opened this summer and is an intriguing new space along Cherry Street. Its intrigue is due to both its ownership—Bret Chandler and Marc Chastain, the two owners of Rib Crib, its barbecue-less menu—and its unique interior.

The restaurant space was designed with comfortable outdoor dining, a hard-to-deny intention of the designers. The restaurant is made up of roughly 60 percent outdoor and 40 percent indoor area. And it is very well done. The outdoor space easily beckons diners, with a fireplace, televisions and bar seating, all in a screened-in area that makes diners feel like they are still somewhat outdoors.

The indoor area features booth and bar seating, with televisions plus close to 20 local beers on tap.

The menu is largely straight forward, offering burgers, sandwiches, appetizers and a few salads, plus a large selection of local beers on tap from American Solera, Cabin Boys Brewery, Dead Armadillo and others. While the menu may not offer anything overly extraordinary, there is still much to be said for ambiance and comfort.

My party started with Truffle Fries: fries tossed in truffle oil, plus green onion and parmesan. They were so good and creamy and a good size for the price.

For our meals, we ordered the Blue burger, with bacon, blue cheese, lettuce, tomato and house sauce, and the Everything, with cream cheese, jalapeño, pickled onion and mayo.

The Blue was my favorite of the two because I’m a sucker for blue cheese. And the blue cheese provides a nice, relatively prominent flavor.

The Everything, for me, had too much cream cheese so that it overpowered the other flavors. I could not taste the jalapeño, and I wished there was more of that flavor.

A fellow bar mate talked to us about his burger: the Theta, that it was full of cheese.So, maybe, a request to go light on the cheese, depending on your desired cheese level, might be wise.

As an additional note, the burgers come ala carte. No sides are included in the average $9 burger price.

Yet, as a comfortable weekday respite for a local beer and a burger, Society is a welcoming, new addition to Cherry Street’s changing neighborhood face.
