Nate Smith to Open Allswell in Williamsburg This Fall


Nate Smith, the chef who left The Spotted Pig and helmed Prospect Heights tavern Dean Street for the better part of the month, has a new restaurant in the works in Williamsburg. The Brooklyn Paper heard he had taken over the recently shuttered Raymund's space at 124 Bedford Ave., and a call to the chef confirms. He and two partners will open a 40-seat bar and restaurant called Allswell there this September.

The menu will be very bar-centric, featuring seasonal American fare. It will be a pub "but not necessarily so masculine," Smith says. It should have a lighter feel. The menu won't change daily, but he says it will change pretty dramatically throughout the week. And they'll serve a light lunch in addition to dinner and late night, where a burger will probably make an appearance after midnight. They will, of course, break down whole pigs. Expect entrees in the mid-$20 range, and apps from $8 - 13.

As for the name, it's meant to signify that this is a place where everyone can drink and have a good time. A place with good vibes.

While he bides his time waiting for his restaurant, Smith has been doing little pop-up dinners all over Williamsburg. The next one goes down at Pinkerton on July 27 and 28 and will feature a whole veal.
