Smile To Go Flatiron

OPENED1067 DAYS AGO

The Smile To Go arrives at the Freehand Hotel in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood.

While this isn’t the first to-go outlet of Downtown’s popular café, the new Smile To Go takes the concept to a whole different level. In fact, they might want to consider calling the new space The Smile To Stay, instead.

The Spot:

Designed by Roman and Williams – New York’s acclaimed design studio behind hotspots such as Le Coucou and the Standard – the new Smile To Go features a 50-seat counter-service café, welcoming you for breakfast and lunch. The space is simple yet sophisticated, balancing wooden furnishings with The Smile’s recognisable color blue.

The Food:

While still focusing on Mediterranean cuisine, chef Melia Marden debuts several new exclusive offerings at this location. Giving American pancakes a run for their money, the new Smile To Go serves Moroccan pancakes with pistachio honey, rhubarb compote and ricotta, as well as egg sandwiches on Black Seed Bagels. Dinner includes Greek offerings such as moussaka and lamb keftedes with tzatiki, while pastries are decidedly American – let us introduce you to house-made strawberry pop tarts, gluten-free oreos and rhubarb blondies.

The Drinks:

The Smile To Go will debut a full wine, beer and cocktail list, with options such as frozen Negronis and hibiscus margaritas. Can other cafés in New York take notes, please?

The Damage:

Breakfast and lunch options vary between $6 and $12.

In a Nutshell:

With other locations of the Smile To Go being hugely popular yet also very small, we’re happy to see the healthy spot opening a bigger location. Did we mention they will also be launching dinner and weekend brunch? Might as well stay(!) here all day.
