The Smith and 11th Street bar

Wednesday night was the February mixer. We went to the 11th Street bar, a nice place albeit hot as the heat was blasting! I did not have a physical mix but I do plan on uploading one soon. So, I guess I will focus on the dinner beforehand! We went to the Smith. A newish place that took the place of Pizzeria Uno in the East Village (thank goodness! I never been to that one). I’ve read good reviews about the place so I was anxious to try it. Now that I think about it, I think I read good reviews about their brunch because I was a little disappointed in their dinner. Me and Joy shared crab hush puppies, which were quite good. I ordered the short ribs and it was lacking in flavor and was using the creamy dipping sauce from the hush puppies on my meat. Joy ordered the pork chop and she said hers was also lacking in flavor. Robyn got the vegetable bibimbop and she said it was good but keep in mind, she’s a vegetarian. LOL. I didn’t get a chance to ask Jonathan and his girlfriend and her friend about their meals. They got chicken sausage, gnocchi and avocado salad. They obliged me when I asked if I could take a picture of their food. It was a nice touch that they had bottles of water and sparkling water on the table, I can give them that! And I didn’t go to the bathroom but heard they have a photo booth.

Again, I apologize for the blurry pictures! It’s hard to stay focused with food in front of you! HA!
