The lunch menu also underwent a revamp with new menu items that include a crispy chicken sandwich, hot “Italian” melt, east coast flounder, etc.

As for our drink menu, two new drinks have been added to our strong pours including “Top Drawer” featuring Double Cross vodka and “Lion’s Roar” with Highwest Double rye. For wine lovers, there are new reds and whites that perfectly complement the cuisine.

Welcome Nick to the Foundation Social Eatery Family

Nick Hassiotis Foundation Social EateryWe are thrilled to welcome Nicholas (Nick) Hassiotis to the Foundation Social Eatery family! With more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Nick has joined the team as our general manager/service manager.

Prior to joining Foundation Social Eatery, Nick helped to open Kona Grill at Avalon in Alpharetta as the bar/trainer manager. Additional past experiences include a stint at HOME restaurant in Buckhead, where he worked alongside Mel. While brief, this time together forged a professional friendship between Mel and Nick and ultimately led to Nick joining us in Roswell. “Over the years, Mel and I have stayed in touch and I am honored that he reached out to me to join this amazing team,” says Nick.

In addition to Kona Grill and Home, Nick has worked with FLIP Burger Boutique, Local Three, Craft/CraftBar, P.F. Chang’s, The Manual Makers, etc.

Outside of his hospitality experience, Nick brings a global perspective to the culinary industry. Born in Saudi Arabia to a Greek father, Nick was raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, prior to moving to Georgia when he was 10. These early experiences, as well as his continued interest in travel, taught Nick to value food as an opportunity to get to know a country, their people and its culture.

When not working or traveling, Nick’s passion for all things food translates into his personal like where he enjoys reading about food, watching food shows and sharing his passion for the culinary world with his wife Torri and daughter Charlie. Speaking of family, Nick and Torri’s family will grow this winter with the arrival of their daughter in December.

Next time you stop by Foundation Social Eatery for lunch or dinner, make sure to say “hello” to Nick and welcome him to the FSE family!
