One of my favorite ways to meet up friends is over dinner. Texts are sent out in the afternoon and the OpenTable emails hit your inbox for confirmation a bit later. My most recent outing was to The Smith. Ive heard many people talk about it, walked by the one in the East Village more times than I could count, but never actually went.
I was unaware that they had 2 locations in the city with one in the East Village and one in Midtown. We opted for the one uptown. It was absolutely great. Enter into a tiled dinning room, the entire front facade open to the warm June air.
The uptown crowd was what one would expect: men in blazers, and each woman with a Cartier Love Bracelet on her arm. My friend and I both had the Mediterranean salad....very good! I cant wait to come back here for brunch.
