Society at Bell Tower Shops has introduced a new menu for patrons wanting small bites, offering 13 items available throughout the day and evening at the restaurant’s downstairs bars and at Treehouse, the open-air bar and lounge, on the second floor.

The “Bites” menu features a delicious array of fresh appetizers created by Society’s talented culinary team, including popular favorites like Cuban cigars and crackle-pop sushi roll, as well as additions like loaded fries, meatballs marinara, fried calamari, chicken wings, coconut-fried shrimp and a half-pound bacon jam cheeseburger topped with fried onions. The creative, casual menu also offers a unique take on familiar items like the everything sushi roll with salmon lox, spicy cream cheese and poke sauce, and the “Bites” menu even includes sweet and spicy bacon – yes, thick slices of sweet and spicy bacon coated in a maple glaze with a special blend of house spices.

During happy hour, which runs from 4 to 7 p.m. daily, six items from the “Bites” menu are available for just $5 each, along with daily drink specials.

Culinary director Todd Erickson and executive chef James Pryor recently expanded Society’s dinner menu to include a vegan roll and large-plated entrées served with perfectly paired side dishes. Other additions are dry-aged prime steaks – New York strips and porterhouse – served with mashed Yukon potatoes, fresh vegetables and choice of a smoked, herb or sherry demi-glace.

“We’ve been listening diligently to our guests since the day we opened, and the revised menu with additional choices is a reflection of their wishes,” Pryor said. “The new ‘Bites’ menu offers familiar bar-style favorites along with some new options, and the expanded dinner menu has a wider range of complete entrée choices to satisfy every palate.”

Society offers multiple dining environments downstairs, including an outdoor garden setting on The Patio, and banquette seating and a bar in the main dining area. Private dining opportunities are also available in the intimate Executive and West dining rooms.

The vibrant rooftop setting invites guests to gather at high-top tables facing the stage, mingle by the main bar, lounge on natural wood benches by the rooftop herb garden or host a small cocktail event around an inviting fire pit. The Treehouse offers a great venue for group events, including “The Backyard,” a semi-private lounge area with a firepit and conversational seating.
