Dixie Foods International, which recently announced it is changing its name to Preferred Restaurant Brands, opened its newest restaurant concept, Social Bistro & Wine Bar, in Las Vegas.

"We are excited to launch this new, proprietary fine casual dining concept,” says CEO Ken Antos. “We believe we will be able to replicate the Social experience elsewhere in Las Vegas and in other markets."

Social occupies an approximately 2,700 square foot, indoor/outdoor space at the intersection of the existing Tivoli Village development and its phase two, which currently is under construction and scheduled to open in 2016. In its first day serving food, the restaurant served more than 500 guests.

Currently, Social is open daily for lunch and evenings until 11 p.m., and also offers Social Hour prices daily from 4 to 6 p.m.

Headquartered in Las Vegas, Preferred Restaurant Brands now operates six Papa John's franchised locations, nine franchised Capriotti's Sandwich Shops throughout its development areas, Elements Fine Casual Dining & Cocktails, and Social Bistro and Wine Bar Fine Casual Dining.
