We love to make people happy! Corner Table Restaurants has been doing so since 2001 when Jane, an American Bistro opened between Greenwich Village and Soho. The Smith, a casual American Brasserie, made its debut in 2007 with the opening of its location in the heart of the East Village. The Smith has become one of New York's hottest restaurant concepts and the preeminent neighborhood restaurant. The palpable energy, engaging staff, and consistently great food keep guests coming back time after time. All of The Smith's locations (East Village, Midtown Manhattan, Lincoln Square and Nomad) serve straightforward dishes that people crave.
From the beginning, Corner Table has been obsessed with building a positive, supportive environment for our employees who in turn take great care of our guests. The culture is guided by a philosophy that the company stands by:
Delivering Joy to Guests
Sourcing Local, Natural, and Sustainable Ingredients
Waiting for Great
Working hard, safe and together
The Smith's locations in Manhattan are in the top 100 grossing restaurants in the United States, collectively serving close to two million guests annually. Three of the four are consistently in the Top 10 "most reserved" restaurants in New York City on Open Table, with The Smith Lincoln Square many times in the #1 spot. The Smith is taking its first steps out of New York City and will open its first location in Washington D.C. in early 2017.
