The Smith at Lincoln Center

by Ada on December 25, 2012

Sunday night Kevin and I headed to the newly-opened Smith in Lincoln Center. Lincoln Center seriously lacks optimal pre-theater dining options, so I hoped The Smith would fill this void.

In addition to standard bread and butter, each table gets presented with a complimentary bottle of sparkling water. A nice and much-appreciated gesture.

To begin we shared the tuna tartare.

The wonderfully fresh tuna arrived with a soy-based sauce and chopped jalapenos. Though this dish was certainly not revelatory, the simplicity permitted the tuna to shine.

For his entree, Kevin selected the Sunday Special of prime rib. Check out the mammoth hunk of meat that arrived:

As you can probably tell by the plate’s pool of juice, the steak was perfectly tender and moist.

A basket of well-crisped fries accompanied the meat:

For my entree I selected the Ahi Tuna Salad.

This was hands down one of the tastiest salads I’ve ever encountered. That statement means a lot, since I’ve consumed many a salad. The ahi tuna glistened with freshness and the capers added a brine to the typically mellow fish. I would repeatedly return to The Smith simply to have this dish again.

For dessert we shared the ice cream sundae.

Another knockout. Peanut butter ice cream. Flourless chocolate cake. Almond chocolate bark. Need I continue?

If you cannot discern from my review, I really enjoyed The Smith and would happily return to sample their other interesting menu items (if I can convince myself to not order the ahi tuna salad again, that is;). Plus, the bathroom has a photo booth! Pretty awesome. Thanks to Kevin for a wonderful holiday meal and fun apres-dinner ice skating session:)

Happy holidays everyone!
