Distinctive and understated, both the modern Mexican fare and the smooth vibe at Society Hill's sleek “So-cheet” are refreshingly sophisticated. The new owners (as of 2012) haven't really changed a thing, not the lounge-y atmosphere, nor the guacamole customization cards, nor the contemporary take on classic Mexican cuisine. You can settle in for a sophisticated evening of ahi tuna ceviche, pan-seared red snapper with chorizo, and a flight of high-end tequilas—or, as they themselves put it, just have a "Tecate and tacos" night. 

Speaking of tacos, the menu prices are a bit high for Mexican (blame the prime Headhouse Square location), but you can get a great deal if you come Sunday to Thursday and order the Molcajete, a make-your-own-tacos platter on a hot lava stone that costs just $28 for two people.  Also, during happy hour (weekdays 5–7pm), margaritas are $5, drafts $3, and bar nibbles $2.
