9th and F Street, NW

Huzzah! Thanks to @eat_dc for sending word. Confirmed on The Smith’s website:


You can see their NYC menus here.

The Smith is a casual American Brasserie with three upbeat locations in New York City: The Smith East Village, overlooking bustling Third Avenue, The Smith Midtown, in the heart of Manhattan, located on 51st Street and Second Avenue and The Smith Lincoln Center directly across from historic Lincoln Center.

Utilizing local products and purveyors, the breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner menus feature a selection of familiar bistro dishes. Signature dishes at all locations include Crispy Fried Calamari “Brooklyn Style,” Pot of Mussels with chardonnay-dijon broth and perfectly cooked hand cut fries and four different cuts of steak prepared char broiled, served with a choice of homemade sauces including béarnaise, green peppercorn and chimichurri. Most of the desserts are fun twists on classics, including Sticky Toffee Pudding, S’mores in a Jar and Hot Fudge Sundae with almond bark and flourless chocolate cake.

Our bars offer an elaborate menu of classic and signature cocktails made with fresh fruit and herbs. We serve seven local hand crafted beers on tap and have a selection of 20 wines available by the glass or carafe as well as a hand selected bottle list.

The crowd at The Smith is eclectic, attracting after-work colleagues, late-night revelers, families for Sunday brunch and more. Our guests come for all occasions – a drink after work, a quick bite before a movie, a business dinner, or to celebrate a birthday.

    The place epitomizes mediocrity. The food is average at best. The crowd is the type that loves style over substance. If it took the Wonderlic test, it’s score would be a 21. It should do very well in DC.

    • I love this place.

      • PetlessInPetworth

        Same. Their brunch is awesome – they have a spicy/sticky bacon that I consider taking an Acela up to NY for!

      yep. it’s basically Bar Louie.

    What the hell is an “upbeat location”? Is that like goofy shit on the walls and mozzerella sticks? Does that mean there are other, downtrodden locations? Because if we’re being honest, a location where your server is fighting back tears and keeps shaking their head at the unfairness of the world is probably a better concept for the city in its current political mood.

      …. you must not get out much? This is pretty much the gold standard for DC interns

      Always a nice touch, bringing politics into a post about an apolitical restaurant. You’re going to have a ROUGH 4 years.

    Curious if they’ll keep the same prices as NYC.
    Their brunch includes 1 drink (although oddly enough you can’t substitute coffee…even before noon on Sundays when you can’t get alcohol)….which if you want the drink, the prices are reasonable. But if you aren’t trying to drink, $17+ for brunch entrees is a bit aggressive (I’d need to be drunk 24/7 if I lived in NYC too). Their dinner prices – everything except a burger is over $23.
    I like The Smith and expect those kind of prices in NYC, but it’s not terribly different than Clyde’s. And Clyde’s is a helluva lot cheaper….

    this is one of my favorite lunch spots in NYC. So excited!

    No way I’ll ever get out to all of these restaurants. We simply do not eat out enough to try them all.

  • Philippe

    I am excited, my wife and I frequented this restaurant regularly while living in NYC.

  • Rich

    Has “The X” replaced X and Y” as the new hipster cliche name for a restaurant or shop?

    • Commentator

      They’ve been open for 10 years, so not sure that counts as a new trend.

  • Squire of the Squangle

    I just hope they didn’t cover every single surface in subway tile like at the others. They’re loud even by NY standards.
