The Smith is the restaurant equivalent of a person that you can always date if you’re feeling lonely. It might not be your first choice, but it’s solid, and there are a bunch of locations around the city. The one in Nomad is spacious with high ceilings and a very long bar that tends to fill up around the time that everyone in the area gets out of work, and there are some big windows up front that they open in the summertime. Also, the menu is huge - which means you can eat steak, a quinoa salad, or both.
