Couches have been purchased to make the new place cozy. The switch should be official once fresh signage and coffee equipment arrive, probably mid-February. Like the original, the second Society Fair will be open three meals a day, with the larger Alexandria operation providing the bulk of the eats.
Eamonn’s isn’t a lost cause. Thrasher says he and his partners, including chef Cathal Armstrong of Restaurant Eve, are actively looking to open another chipper in a more urban environment (read: the District). And the Society Fair in Arlington won’t be the owners’ last: Thrasher, Armstrong and company plan to expand the brand with additional units down the road.
