Entering through a small "back door" entrance, guests may feel they are arriving at a social gastrobar-cum-fear factory. The spacious dining room, invigorated by upbeat tunes and briskly attended by 12 service staff, is decked in the style of a blacksmith exhibition with everything from archaic household tools, time-worn cooking utensils and medieval farming instruments to slaughterhouse hooks and an impressive collection of butcher's knifes (the latter are also for sale) displayed under dim yellow lighting amidst a cosmopolitan bar and professional show kitchen.
Reflecting the restaurant's cryptic character, the menu offers a clean yet somewhat abstruse read. Half of the 30-item collection, in categories of salad and comestibles, raw & almost raw, charcuterie, mains and desserts, came with halfway descriptions (they may reveal all the ingredients but omit to disclose the cooking keywords).
Smith has a fair choice of desserts.
As a bar, it has a nice collection of beers and cocktails _ classic and house-concocted. Making a reservation is recommended.
