And it's a real show. Where The Cedars Social earned a Beard nomination, Smyth could take home a medal. It just needs to hone that subtle finesse of service that other cocktail lounges around the country have mastered completely. A proper doorman to replace that impersonal call box, and a better eye for the empty glasses and crumpled cocktail napkins that seem to collect when things get busy would give this place the extra edge of refinement it needs. Perhaps a little yin would balance what feels like a little too much yang. Mr. Smyth could use a woman's touch.
