Chef Art Smith re-opened late February his Capitol Hill restaurant, Art & Soul, after a one-month remodeling. Eater recently checked out the revamped space.
In addition to the interior makeover, Smith made some changes to the menu. He and the restaurant's chef, Wes Morton, added two sections encouraging family-style dining. Deviled eggs and pork rinds, seafood gumbo, and duck and rice bean stew are among the new offerings. New bar snacks, such as Cajun boudin balls and fried pickled green tomatoes, are also on the menu. To sample the new taste of Art and Soul, the restaurant is offering a three-course dinner that will available through March 17.
Last November, Smith announced that he was going to close Art & Soul after inauguration for renovations. He told The Washington Post's Tom Sietsema that the interior wasn't his taste.
