The almost deafening din that reverberates around The Smith can be attributed both to the large, fairly open dining room with echoing tile walls and to the steady crowd of twenty- and thirty-somethings that have come for the scene as much as anything. Even at this location in East Midtown (but really, where are we? Who lives here?), reservations for brunch and dinner on the weekends are a must to avoid the hour-plus waits that can stack up quickly. Fortunately, The Smith isn't still a place that people have been waiting a month to try, so reservations even the day before aren't extraordinarily difficult.
