Restaurant Openings: Sojourn Social + Buena Onda

Two new restaurants have just opened on the Upper East Side.

The owners of Sojourn, located at 244 East 79th Street, recently had a grand opening for their second UES establishment, Sojourn Social — located at 1708 Second Avenue, between 88th and 89th streets. This space was formerly home to Genesis Bar.

Early reviews give praise to the new bar and restaurant’s ambiance and list of curated cocktails.

Some menu items include Duck Rillete Croquettes, Lobster Truffle Mac & Cheese, Braised Short Rib Sliders and Shrimp Tacos. They’ve also got a selection of meat and cheese plates and Sojourn’s Signature Cheesecake for dessert.

Sojourn Social is serving dinner 7 nights a week and lunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Reservations are available on Resy.
