Smiths of Smithfield is somewhat of a chameleon of a restaurant; all things to all men. Spread over four floors, each floor has its own unique style and menu. The calibre goes up as the altitude does, with the ground floor serving American diner style food, through to the top floor which promises a range of rare meats and fine wines. Team onefinestay took the short walk through Smithfield Market, London’s last working meat market, to sample the lunchtime fare on the ground floor.
Who goes here: The long tables make it a good place for groups meals, avoiding the person-sticking-out-on-the-edge problem. It’s a pretty casual crowd out looking for a hearty American meal.
Why you’ll want to visit: If you have the type of hunger that only a burger or fried sandwich will cure then Smiths of Smithfield is the place to go.
When to go: This place has it all. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Cocktails. Just bring yourself and they’ll do the rest.
How to find it: Opposite Smithfield Market on Charterhouse Street.
