Is The Smith Worth the Hype?

Like most people, I love Instagram. It’s one of my favorite apps on my iPhone and I love looking through other peoples pictures. However, the reason why I love Instagram so much is because of all the amazing food pictures and food accounts there are! There are so many to choose from. Each account is so different but still manages to have one common factor: yummy food. I love looking at pictures that have oozing cheese or chocolate…it all looks so good! I would have considered my younger self a “foodie” before it was “Insta Worthy.” I have always been one who likes to try new foods and restaurants, however I didn’t know where to find them sometimes. With Instagram, food pictures and videos, it’s so easy to find new, cool places to try!

One of the places that I had been DYING to try was The Smith. For months, I had been staring at pictures of oozing Mac n Cheese and the Smores dessert jar. When I was home for Winter Break, I begged my Mom to come into the city with me to try it. So, we made a day out of it! We walked around, we shopped a bit, walked around some more. Dinner time was approaching and I was starving

. The Smith has a few locations throughout NYC, we went to the location in Midtown. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long. I knew it was a very popular restaurant, so I was concerned that we would have to wait. We sat down and glanced at the menu for a couple of minutes. There were so many options, I wanted to try them all! However, I remembered from Instagram there was one item I just had to order. I had to order the Mac n Cheese…I had seen so many pictures, I couldn’t resist. I ordered the Mac n Cheese and my Mom ordered one of the salads.

Let me tell you something about this Mac n Cheese…it was the BEST Mac n Cheese I’ve ever had. It’s made with four different types of cheeses so there was so much flavor in the small skillet. It was hot, gooey and cheesy, the three most important parts of any Mac n Cheese. I wanted to eat the whole thing, but it was too much for me to finish. Next was dessert and I didn’t have to look at the dessert menu to know what I wanted. I ordered the Smores in a Jar…and it was fantastic. I love chocolate and I love anything Smores related. It was the perfect dessert for me! The jar was perfectly balanced and everything tasted great. What’s not to like about that??

So the question remains, is The Smith worth the hype? I’m sure there are other amazing restaurants that have great Mac n Cheese…but I would totally recommend trying this one! It tastes great, looks fantastic and it’s enough to fill you up! I think the Smores in a Jar is unique, so I would recommend trying that as well! The other items on the menu look just as good, so I wouldn’t mind going back.  I would say the price is a little more on the expensive side but it’s NYC so it makes sense. Overall, I think The Smith was worth the hype and I can’t wait to go back for another round!!
