B. Smith's was an easy find right off the train on Restaurant Row in Broadway. We stopped in right before a show and were able to walk right in without reservations. Now don't get me wrong- the food was good, but because I'm from the South and know what great Soul Food is, I'll just leave my review at good.... More

My friend recommended this place when I was visiting NYC. This was some of the best chicken I've had. We ate so much chicken and we weren't ashamed! We got the glazed wings for appetizers and they were so delicious. Then, it was the fried chicken for the entree. I got corn on the cob and the collard greens as... More

I stopped here on my last evening in this wonderful city. I sat at the bar and first ordered a drink off the happy hour menu. The bartender, William, was very nice and easy going. My drink was good. I almost ordered the chicken wings for about $7, but he told me you only get 4 pieces (which equates to... More

I brought my Mother here to celebrate her birthday. The restaurant has an open/airy feel and is decorated in muted colors of brown and creams. Brian was our server and was very helpful in assisting us with making our meal selections, being newbies here we didn't want to chance it and select any meals that were less than stellar. I... More

My husband and I chose B. Smith's after checking out the menu offerings at a few other restaurants in the area. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and shown to seats in the rear of the restaurant. We were concerned that we might be cutting it close to getting to our theater on time, but the service was spot... More

We usaully take the train to New York on a Sunday morning, have brunch and see a show and come home about once a month. So I am always on the look out for perfect brunch spots in the theater district. I was excited to try B Smith's as it was near the theaters in a perfect location. The space... More

This is a nice place for lunch before a matinee. The food was good and the service attentive and prompt.

Four of us had a delightful brunch here last Saturday. The restaurant itself is lovely, the service was outstanding, and everyone enjoyed their food. The prices were fine, and we would definitely return. If you're looking for some fine Southern cooking, here's the place!

We ate here in a recent visit to New York for the first time, and were very impressed. We're not big devotes of soul food -- not our background, but primarily for health reasons -- but this was excellent food in a lovely atmosphere. We had the shrimp and grits, which was deliciously prepared and a relatively low-fat option. Service... More

I ate at this restaurant and had the fried chicken and macaroni and cheese along with collard greens. The greens were very good and the macaroni was okay. I thought the chicken was pretty good. I would try something else next time.
