SmithHouse Tap & Grill Restaurant Review

: The wall of windows that surround this beer bar and gastropub in Century City allows plenty of light to flood into the massive space, while elements such as red brick, wood, and signs painted like 1950s billboards highlight the comfortable Americana setting. Expansive, maroon-colored booths encompass one third of the dining room; another third is dominated by wood tables and the rest by a 360-degree wraparound bar with 120 beers on tap. Consulting chef Angelo Sosa (a finalist on Bravo’s “Top Chef”) contributed the lengthy menu that ranges from sandwiches and salads to rice bowls and chops. The beer fondue, a rich, formidable mix of Harp’s Lager and several cheeses, makes a good dip for the accompanying homemade pretzels. Rock shrimp are fried crisp and served with three well-crafted sauces: black bean, sweet chili and lime-jalapeño. The 16-ounce bone-in rib-eye is cooked as desired to a ruby medium rare. Beers include hard-to-find brews like He’Brew Origin Pomegranate Ale and Allagash Curieux on draft. Red velvet layer cake, funnel cake and ice creams are available for dessert.
