The up-and-coming South of Southern neighborhood of West Palm Beach will soon be home to a new restaurant that dubs itself a fast-fine café.
Set to open this spring, the restaurant will feature modern-American cuisine in a laid-back setting, The SoSo will bring foodie-forward flavors that range from a quick lunch with friends to lively weekend brunch.
The concept is the work of Akadis Hospitality and executive chef Cesar Brea, who will open his first restaurant alongside partners Kye Akavia and Alex DiSchino.
"We aim to bring a quality, yet laid-back, dining experience to the neighborhood we grew up in and love," said Akavia, co-founder of Akadis Hospitality. "This area continues to grow with young families, professionals and seasonal folks who are looking for a quick lunch with friends or easy, kid-friendly family dinner on the fly, without the formality of a fine dining experience. Our menu's inspiration comes from the trending 'fast fine' concept that has slowly been taking over larger cities over the last decade.
Brea, who has extensive experience in some of South Florida’s finest kitchens, has created a menu that is a reflection of the team’s collective experiences eating around the world, creating a signature style that puts a twist on classic neighborhood café staples.
Dishes include a seasonal selection of rotating soups, salads, sandwiches, and light entrees using the highest-quality local ingredients, menu items that include a mix of globally-inspired dishes and comfort classics.
The beverage menu will offer wine, craft beer, mixed drinks like sangria, mimosas and Bellini’s. An assortment of hot and cold ready-to-eat grab-and-go items will also be available for guests on the go.
The full menu has been designed for takeout and delivery, carefully designed meals with maximum portability and convenience in mind. In addition, the team says they plan to launch a gourmet, ready-to-reheat menu of at-home meals soon after opening.
