We are often asked: who is ‘Smith’? The answer is all of us! In English, smith usually means a metal worker, but in Dutch the term smid means more than that. It is an artisan, a crafts person who specializes in their trade. We are Dutch so we’ve adopted that definition for our restaurant.
We are working with the best people we can find in Prince Edward County. In some cases, this means working with real smiths like the mason who built the hearth and wood-burning oven, and the blacksmith who built the hearth tools. Our smiths also include the chef, the artisanal baker, the oyster shuckers, sommeliers and servers. Some of these people have years of experience in some of the best restaurants, some are just starting out, but they have the right attitude and are working hard to master their craft.
