At $14 per order, the lump crab guacamole is definitely worth every dollar. With a heaping amount of guacamole placed on the dish with an array of tortilla chips, approximately 1-1/2 ounces of crab meat sits on top making the dish look as good as it tastes. All three components work together for a very satisfying dish.
The half-rack of lamb at $18 is savory and juicy, and the spices and marinade compliment each other well. The meat, perfectly cooked at medium-rare, is marinated with soy, basil and thyme and comes with fresh vegetables on the side.
Smith Street Station is a comfortable spot to relax with a Manhattan after work or enjoy a cocktail with friends when you want to talk, not shout or compete for attention with the Game of the Day.
From Crain's Chicago Business:
The Dolezal family, which owns Durty Nellies West Irish Pub in Palatine, now has another bar right next door: Smith Street Station, at 180 N. Smith St. Billed as "a destination lounge for cocktails and conversation," it's aiming for a sophisticated vibe, serving small plates and handcrafted cocktails. The website spells out the sort of clientele the owners are hoping to attract: "Smith Street Station welcomes the mature, well-dressed patron at least 25 years of age." The Dolezal family also owns Duke's Alehouse & Kitchen in Crystal Lake.
From Palatine Patch:
The interior boasts generous bar seating, as well as several couches to lounge on. The artwork, which is available for purchase, comes from Paper Crown Gallery in Arlington Heights and will be refreshed monthly. There is even a hidden 80-inch TV that can be used for meetings when the space is rented out.
