UWS RESTAURANT NEWS AND NOTES: THE SMITH, SAY CHEESE, ELLINGTON INN, AMIGOS

Upper West Side restaurants are expanding their menus and a new spot is close to opening.

The Smith, the new restaurant on 64th and Broadway (pictured above), will open for breakfast for the first time on Monday at 7:30 a.m. It will serve breakfast from Monday through Friday. The menu includes items like smoked salmon benedict with home fries ($16), a ranchero scramble made with chipotle salsa, black beans, tortillas, cheddar and avocado ($13), and vanilla bean french toast with maple butter and caramelized bananas ($12). And if you’re okay with feeling a little buzzed on a workday, they also will serve cocktails: Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Bellinis for $6 each. We’ve attached the menu below.

Say Cheese, the eatery at 142 West 83rd Street that specializes in gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, s’mores and sno-cones, is going to start dinner service next month. “Say Cheese will unveil  an extended gourmet comfort menu featuring tapas style plates perfect for sharing. Say Cheese features farm to table cocktails, elixirs & exciting modern beer cocktails.”

Neighborhood Bar & Grill, a restaurant at 106th and Amsterdam, closed last summer. But we hear that a new restaurant called the Ellington Inn is on its way to the spot. More details should be coming soon.

Amigos, the Mexican restaurant that just replaced Il Cibreo on 112th Street and Broadway, is run by Alex Garcia of AG Kitchen. Apparently, it’s only planning to stick around for 4 months. Says Grubstreet: “Alex Garcia’s Amigos NYC, a four-month pop-up restaurant, opens today at 2888 Broadway between 112th and 113th Streets. Each month will showcase dishes from a different Mexican chef. Garcia’s favorite entrees are on the menu this month, including his AG Roast Chicken and a morita chile-rubbed pork chop with chorizo and potato ragu. Next month, Chef Adrian Leon will takeover.”

      Maybe instead of opening another restaurant AG should focus his attention on his craptastic restaurant on Columbus. Worst. Run. Restaurant. Ever.
