Just a few years in, SmithHouse just might be on the chopping block. A non-specific, but fairly obvious broker email shows that a 10,000 square foot restaurant and bar with full liquor is up for sale in Century City.
Most people can count the large-scale restaurants in Century City two hands (Gulfstream, Rock Sugar, Pink Taco, Craft), so it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see the Angelo Sosa-consulted bar & grill on the sales rack at the moment. Inquiries to Hinoki & the Bird and Craft confirmed that neither is up for grabs. If not SmithHouse, what other place could be on the offering in bustling Century City? The area is already slated to land Eataly in 2017.
