Midwest Living Review

Danny Lee
Columbus-based Smith's Row is the place to get your Long Island Ducks in a row.

It's traditional, comfortable and somewhat predictable, but Smith’s Row is still worth a visit. Located a half block east of Washington, the main artery in Columbus' booming downtown, Smith's is a haven of wrought iron and delicious wines (you can bring your own, but be ready to pay a corkage fee of $12). An iron balcony on the upstairs level lends a New Orleans vibe.

Choose from filet mignon with Merlot reduction ($29); beef tenderloin au poivre, pan-seared with a cream and Cognac sauce ($26); and a Long Island duck breast with orange port sauce ($17 half, $21 full). The crab-encrusted walleye ($26) we ordered was great, as were the Asiago-stuffed red potatoes on the side. However, the herb-crusted rack of lamb ($30) was disappointingly fatty and underdone, and the restaurant was out of mint jelly during our visit. The apple cake with rum sauce we enjoyed for dessert ($6) made it up though, especially when our server attentively appeared with a second serving of sauce after we devoured the first rum-soaked layer.
