What a great place!

What a charming little place! This place really felt like a bistro in Paris to me. Crowded and noisy, it was like being back in Odeon or something, but with a New York twist, of course. The food was solid and just very good. The Mac & Cheese was good and different. Make sure they really get a crust on there. They just added fontina cheese to the mix which adds a nutty flavor to the dish, and the slightly firmer than normal texture of the pasta is different and nice. The burger is large and classic with wonderfully savory fries, although they could use a bit less grease and a little more crisp. I had the lamb schnitzel…and it was oh so very delicious. Reminiscent of the Southern staple of chicken fried steak I love so much, it was like a modern, updated, and elevated version of that staple comfort food that does not seem to exist above the Mason Dixon line, lol. Unlike regular weiner schnitzel which uses veal, the lamb gave the dish a flavor and texture more similar to steak, and the parmesan breading crust was just perfectly crispy and light. I myself adore lamb, so the flavor that the lamb added was what really just made me fall in love with the dish. It really took chicken fried steak to a whole new level with a much more sophisticated and complex flavor profile to accompany the expert preparation. Served with very thick, dense, and comforting smashed potatoes, the dish was an amazing rendition of a Southern comfort food classic using a European twist. The dessert menu looked great, but I was beyond stuffed, so I will have to come back to have a try at that as well as some of the other great looking menu items. And one more reason to love this place, like all Parisian bistros / cafes / brasseries, they give you a carafe of water, but at The Smith they automaticall give you one still and one sparkling…I gotta love that…
