The Smith on 3rd Ave between 10th and 11th street is a recently opened American/comfort food restaurant that will satisfy your late night or morning after cravings. This spot in a jammin' loc in the E.V. does comfort food at comfortable prices. The Smith boast an edgy design with white tiled walls and black slate banquets, a well stocked bar and clean bathrooms. I have eaten here twice and have not been dissapointed. My favorite dish here is the creamy roasted tomato soup topped with Vermont cheddar. This scrumptious soup tastes of pure Americana. The mac and cheese arrives in a caste iron skillet and is quite rich and good. Burgers are serviceable and the mushroom ravioli is very good. Ice cream sundaes such as hot fudge and apple pie sundaes are the featured desserts, though not made with any locally made ice-cream, I would fill up on the comfort fare and head to the East Village Ice Cream Factory for dessert if you are feeling like an ice-cream fix.
