The Smith

Lincoln Square

The massive restaurant, which follows McCormick and Schmick’s in Penn Quarter, is a branch of the same-named collection of American brasseries in New York, and you’ll like it for more than its utility. If not every dish pleases, enough of them do, and the Smith, awash in subway tiles and smoked antique mirrors, is the uncommon restaurant where hearing “no” from an employee is as rare as encountering a pay phone.
