First responders at The Smith restaurant, 63rd and Broadway

By Joy Bergmann

A fire broke out Sunday morning around 6:30 a.m. at The Smith restaurant located at 1900 Broadway (63rd Street). No one was injured, an FDNY chief told WSR at the scene.

The blaze began in the kitchen, the chief said. Its cause is under investigation, but FDNY said it may have been caused by electrical issues.

A quick glance into the restaurant at 8:00 a.m. revealed water pooling on the floor, but little evidence of damage to the seating area.

WSR was unable to reach The Smith’s management by phone to determine when they expect to be able to offer service again.
