WELCOME! NEW LOCATION, NEW WEB SITE, NEW BLOG
Almost a year ago, we signed the lease for our Midtown location. Formerly a Rite-Aid, there has been a lot of work involved to go from pharmacy to fries, etc. In the past twelve months, we’ve spent countless hours with our restaurant designers, nemaworkshop, creating a space that, though entirely unique, is still unmistakably The Smith.
Jeff Lefcourt, owner, on facing construction challenges: “Running ventilation up a 20 story residential building? That was a fun three months.” Besides designing and building a new restaurant, we’ve also been busy working with the lovely Lindsay McCabe and Leigh Nelson of LMNOP Creative, tweaking the design, logo and menus of The Smith (we hope you like it!). At this point, we’re days away from opening, and we can’t wait to be part of the neighborhood. We feel like we made a great choice with this corner, and we look forward to seeing you at The Smith!
Fast Facts: THE SMITH MIDTOWN
Location: 956 Second Avenue (corner of 51st and 2nd)
Grub: All your favorites from the East Village: mussels, tomato soup, burgers, mac and cheese, etc. PLUS, we’re adding a Raw Bar: oysters, clams, shellfish specialties. Yum.
Want more?: We will deliver, too.
Even more Smith?: We do a mean private party. Like the East Village, Midtown has a beautiful private dining room – we can seat up to 60 guests.
