553 Church St. has been taken over by Smith, one of the newest restaurants in Milan’s neighbourhood. The spot was formerly owned by the club Straight which was very popular in the area. Although things have changed a bit, don’t expect this hot spot to fizzle out.
Owner Renda Abdo will cater to the wants of her clients. Although Smith is more food focused, there will still be a DJ booth and dance floor on the third floor. “We’re not interested in confining it to a label. We’re prepared to stay open until four or five in the morning if people want to continue their night.” Said Abdo. “Smith is for anybody that enjoys good food, good music and good atmosphere”.
Dinner and dancing? Sounds like a good mix to us.
Main dishes include the Pearl Barley Risotto ($17), the Slow Roast Pork Belly ($19) and the Miso Glazed Sable Fish ($29).
For cocktails, you could try the Smith Sour ($11) a bourbon with fresh lime juice, simple syrup, egg white and bitters. If you’re feeling fancy, try the Millionaire ($11), a knob creek bourbon with egg white, grand marnier, grenadine, pastis, fresh lemon and nutmeg
