Smith's Plays Stevie Wonder, Thievery Corporation, and Bud Powell
Just because <a href=http://nymag.com/daily/food/2007/10/chefs_continue_to_rock_and_we.html>we couldn't care less what a chef is playing in the kitchen</A> doesn’t mean we aren’t curious about what’s playing in the dining room — the better to avoid <a href=http://nymag.com/daily/food/2007/11/bun_asks_the_ageold_question_w.html>spots that blast “Who Let the Dogs Out”</a> (we’ll give El Sombrero a pass for playing “La Macarena” because, well, it’s <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/el-sombrero/>El Sombrero</a>). And if they’re playing Weezer’s “The World Has Turned” like <A href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/momofuku_noodle_bar/>Momofuku</a> was Sunday night, we’re there with cowbells on. That’s why every week we’ll pick a new or notable eatery and list ten songs you might hear there. This week: <a href=http://nymag.com/listings/restaurant/smiths/>Smith’s</a>, the new one from Danny Abrams and Cindy Smith.
