In Culinary News: EV Grab & Go

When James Beard award-winning chef Michael Smith and Nancy Smith opened their modern Italian restaurant, Farina, in 2019, they left their original restaurant space, Michael Smith Restaurant, as is, choosing to use it for private parties, catered events, or as overflow seating for their Mediterranean tapas restaurant Extra Virgin. Now the couple has announced that their enviable corner spot on Main Street will be officially redesigned to match the vibrant, colorful décor of Extra Virgin, so it truly looks and feels like part of its sexy sister restaurant next door. With the original Michael Smith Restaurant kitchen still intact, they will also add a new grab ‘n’ go market in the space called EV Grab & Go, selling sandwiches, soups, and salads, along with heat-and-eat dishes to take home from both Extra Virgin and Farina. It won’t be the entire menu, just those dishes that travel well. Dips, spreads, salads, lamb skewers, duck meatballs, and marinated olives are on the short list. Also available will be a rotating selection of pastas and sauces, vinegars, olive oils, fresh cheeses, almonds, anchovies, steaks, fresh herbs, and even cocktail ice. Doors to open sometime this month.
