Smith Commons Dining Room & Public House is a three-story neighborhood bistro on the H Street NE corridor in the Atlas Arts District. With an international menu of approachable cuisine and an array of craft beers, wines and cocktails at three bars, Smith Commons offers something for every palate. The well-honed interiors, outdoor spaces and eclectic music welcome Smiths and friends nightly. Smith Commons is a different kind of dining destination in Washington, D.C., serving artfully crafted dishes prepared by chefs with multicontinental flare, without the white tablecloths or the pretense. Executive Chef Carlos Delgado creates a fresh new menu each month, with inspirations from around the globe and from the greater mid-Atlantic region. Chef Delgado his experience at some of the finest dining rooms in the area, as well as a stage at elBuli in Barcelona to the table. Well-paired bar food complements the vast array of libations, craft and beer, and extensive wine selections.

"Smith Commons seemed like a find in the vicinity of the Atlas Performing Arts Center, but failed to please. The ideas were interesting - fusion with a kick, but mostly they fell short. The charcuterie platter did not contain the advertised meats. Instead it had several types of salami and some pate. Okay, but not what we expected or wanted. The smoked chicken was tasty, but not especially inspired. The butternut squash ravioli were gluey, though the taste was good, but all was overwhelmed by the curry sauce included. It was exactly what the menu described, but did not really work. The bread pudding had a very nice flavor, but was too dense - even for a bread pudding lover. Nice try, but needs work."
