Best Daily Dollar Oysters
Taylor Speed

Social OTR in Findlay Market has two spaces: a main restaurant and a back bar. At the main Elm Street entrance, you’ll find a couple of sidewalk patio tables and a sunny front room with a mirrored bar and communal tables. The back room — also known as The Alley at Social…because you enter from Campbell Alley — has a darker, cozier feel where the bartenders double as servers. It is here where you’ll find the 5-1-3 Happy Hour, named for the city’s area code, boasting $5 house wines, $1 oysters and $3 drafts. It happens 4 to 6 p.m. every day they’re open aka Tuesday through Saturday. And this isn’t the only special at Social. On Tuesday, you can get a pound of mussels and a bottle of house white for $20, then come back on Wednesday for burger night. (They also have a special brunch menu on the weekends.) A nonprofit venture, Social OTR nails its ambitious New American menu full of snacks and shareables while aiming to fill a multitude of societal and business needs. In partnership with CityLink Center, a faith-based nonprofit organization that works on multiple fronts to combat poverty, the restaurant offers an internship for students involved in the Findlay Culinary Training program. Students participate in a workforce development program before getting hands-on training in the restaurant to prepare them for a professional career in kitchens around the area.
