Powerhouse lakeside restaurant 6Smith officially opened yesterday in Wayzata, boasting 180-degree views right on Lake Minnetonka. According to a preview in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, the restaurant seats 220 inside, 130 on a rooftop deck, and an additional 70 on the patio. The restaurant comes from chef JP Samuelson (formerly of JP American Bistro, New York's Bouley and Danube, and most recently in the kitchen at Figlio) and Randy Stanley (who was general manager of Manny's for 20 years).
The lunch and dinner menus are available online, including steaks, burgers, oysters, and an entire section devoted to lobster (lobster guacamole, lobster spring rolls, lobster rolls, lobster croquettes, chunky lobster cake, and a 1/2-lb. lobster in three different styles). Plus, the desserts were created by La Belle Vie pastry chef Diane Yang, who is also getting accolades for her dessert contributions to Uptown's Heyday.
