The Blacksmith is three establishments in one: a steak house, a lounge, and on weekends a dance club. Executive Chef Gavin McMichael creates new classics for the seasonally changing menu, such as lobster corndogs, “Not Your Mother’s Meatloaf,” and Northwest cheesesteak. He even coined a term for his style, “new ranch cuisine,” which he characterizes as American provincial. Bold and diverse tastes evoke the feel of the West. And The Blacksmith was recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the “top 66 new restaurants in the world.”
