The Smith Restaurant Review

: The Midtown version of the East Village restaurant offers a comfortable setting awash in white tiles, while the menu touts mostly American-global fare. Ricotta gnocchi, lightly pan-fried, is very good, especially with truffle cream sauce drizzled atop, and the steak salad, complete with arugula, goat cheese and endive, is a meal in and of itself. There’s also an intriguing trout Milanese-style and a juicy pork chop accompanied by latkes. The wine list spans the globe with plenty of offerings by the glass in the $10 range.
