On Saturday night, with the smell of fresh paint mixing with the aroma of espresso beans, Northside Social opened for a private pre-opening celebration.
It was a chance for the new neighborhood hangout to show off some of its well-curated wine and beer selections, as well as a few items from the food menu. It was also a chance for employees of Northside Social and Liberty Tavern — both co-owned by brothers Mark and Stephen Fedorchak — to step back, take a breather, and marvel at the fruits of their labor.
Despite the momentary respite from the grind of planning, building, and permitting, Stephen Fedorchak said that much work remains. For one, the other jewel in the Liberty Tavern crown, Lyon Hall, will be opening soon. And, he said, the real work starts after a place opens.
Fedorchak said he expects his employees — including Northside Social general manager Alison Christ, formerly of Willow Restaurant in Ballston, and director of coffee Marianne Tolosa, formerly of Murky Coffee (Northside’s predecessor) — will have no problem stepping up to the plate and creating an enjoyable experience for customers and employees alike.
“We’re really excited about the team we have,” Fedorchak said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
