The Smith reopens for evening bar service after last week's fire
The Smith reopened this past Friday night for bar service featuring a limited six-item menu and $2 oysters.
The main dining room will remain closed for now. This follows the kitchen fire last Monday night that temporarily closed the bistro here at 55 Third Ave. between 10th Street and 11th Street.
The FDNY had the fire under control in less than 40 minutes. The @FDNYalerts account stated that the fire was in a kitchen duct.
The Smith started in the East Village in 2007, later expanding to seven locations total in NYC (4), Washington, D.C. (2) and Chicago (1).
