I think it has been open less than a year and I want to make a reservation but forgot the name.
Also would appreciate any comments on the place once we get the name.
Thanks for any help.

    The Smith - casual American menu at a reasonable price point but while I liked the food it's not quite in the same league as Bar Boulud or Boulud Sud. Fun, lively atmosphere but very noisy. The service in my experience has been excellent.

      The Smith!! Bless you both!
      I wanted to try it for breakfast or brunch.
      I didn't know Bar Boulud was open for breakfast.
      I will check it out.
      Thanks a bunch.

      The Empire Hotel at 44 West 63rd? Did you try looking on Google Maps or Google Streetview?

      Is it The Smith?
