Chef Michael Smith is shaking up the Crossroads dining landscape, transforming his namesake restaurant into a private dining and events space and opening Farina, a modern Italian restaurant at the corner of 19th and Baltimore. (Never fear, Smith’s other Crossroads spot, Extra Virgin, will remain untouched.) The new restaurant features the menu the James Beard Award-winning chef introduced for Michael Smith restaurant’s 10th anniversary in 2017, including antipasti, fish, chops, seasonal sides, and desserts. Farina—the Italian word for flour—will also highlight Smith’s signature pastas. In addition to his interpretation of Italian cuisine, diners can enjoy a fresh oyster bar, a bar program led by longtime collaborator Berto Santoro, and vino picks from wine director Nancy Smith, who will also serve as general manager and partner.
