“A welcome addition.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place will be a hit. The two of us got there early (5:30),and were comfortably seated in a banquet for four. Cocktails were prepared exactly as ordered, prices on a par with comparable restaurants. The beet salad and the salmon appetizers were well presented and delicious. Sirloin steak with au poivre sauce, and shrimp/scallop entrees were tasty, tinged with a smokiness, as the name suggests. The only reason I didn't give another star was that the steak ordered medium rare was just a hair over the line, pink but not bloody. I chose not to make an issue of it. The staff seems to know what it's doing. The prices are up there, but worth it. This restaurant fills a niche which is not otherwise found in this area. Every table was full by the time we left.

I was familiar with the previous restaurants at this location, and I predicted that they wouldn't last (clueless staff, poor menu, etc). This looks like it is here to stay.
Bravo!

ps Try the collard greens as a side.

“Smoke & Mirrors”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Drinks at the bar here are decidedly overpriced and shy on liquor. This seems to be part of the the business plan at this location where two previous restaurants have tanked due to over ambitious prices and mediocre food quality. A couple of the steak entrees are close to $50.00...
al la carte.
