Smith Restaurant

We went to Smith on Saturday, and can I just tell you that these guys have it spot on!?  Seriously – the decor, the food, the service, the branding… everything is a perfect 10.  I honestly couldn’t expect it to get any better, then again I haven’t done supper there so we’ll have to see :)

The menu has everything from simple, hearty dishes (that includes Southern fried chicken, pork tenderloin, bangers and mash and plenty of appetizers to share, like deep-fried artichokes, poutine, and olive and charcuterie plates.) to home-made deserts and yummy drinks.  Take a look:

How amazing are these menus?  These pictorial menus are printed on newsprint and are really, really great looking.  

And then of course we order food – and it’s perfect. The scones ($6)  come with raspberry preserves and yeah, there were pieces of actual vanilla bean in it. The whipped cream was also made in-house.  Delicious as they were, I’d suggest asking for them warm… yum!

Unfortunately we all ordered the same dish – eggs benny ($14) so I can’t give you other pictures. What can I say other than they were also perfect, I mean, look at that thick-cut ham!!!  And usually the potatoes are merely a side – a nice change of flavour in between egg and Hollandaise (also made in-house) but guys, they were deep fried pieces of sheer goodness. Do I need to say more?


They’re open  Wednesday-Thursday 5pm-11pm, Friday 5pm-12am, Saturday 11am-4pm (brunch) 5pm-12am (dinner), and Sunday 11am-4pm (brunch). Go go go!!  Let me know if you go for supper :)

    I walked by this place the other day as I was going to Lola’s for brunch. Scones look good. Are those apple slices on them?

      Nope! Those are peach slices. The preserves were strawberry that day, and had been made with vanilla bean. The ham on the eggs benni was so tender too… I was just telling my friend that we need to head back for Dinner, should do that ASAP!
