SMITH KITCHEN + BAR UPDATE

Somerset restaurant at 7 East Anapamu Street, which closed after 10 months in business to try a more casual style of dining, reopened on December 5th as Smith Kitchen + Bar. Smith is a completely re-designed space with a rustic, white washed interior, and reclaimed tables and benches occupying the courtyard. The new concept features a family style dinner service where plates are meant to be shared with dishes priced between $8-$18. Chef Lauren Herman helms the kitchen which features her organic, rustic fare, sourced from the central coast.

“We wanted to create a very approachable and casual dining experience that encompassed everything that is great about Santa Barbara”, said proprietor Steve Hermann. “This is the perfect place to meet with family and friends to share food and drinks, and have a great time in a relaxed setting.” Smith is open for both lunch and dinner Monday through Friday with Brunch on Sunday. It also features a Happy Hour 4-6 p.m. daily, featuring drinks priced under $6.

    The use of the word “approachable” to describe his business suggests the place is anything but casual.

    I’m sorry to see Somerset go. I did not like the interior of the restaurant but thought the courtyard was one of nicest places to dine in Santa Barbara. I had four wonderful dinners there. I’m really over sharing plates…..

    No Saturday hours? Only brunch on Sundays?

    It’s Smithy, not Smith.

      The owner emailed me personally and says it is “Smith.” Yelp says “Smithy.” I believe the owner more than Yelp.

      • Chris says:

        The sign as you enter says Smithy (12/7/17).

        • John Dickson says:

          Looks like I am wrong and you are right. Below is a message I received from the owner the DAY BEFORE they opened. I now wonder if the part about the business not being open on Saturdays is also wrong.
