"The Summer Grill Menu was created for the balmy nights and lighter appetites of summer. From the Lobster Salad to the Open-Faced Sliced Filet, the menu takes the best ingredients and concepts from the classic Smith & Wollensky menu, and presents them with a warm weather twist," said marketing director Kim Lapine. "Our goal is to give loyal guests something new to try and those unfamiliar with the Smith & Wollensky brand a reason to sample what we have to offer, preferably with a glass of wine in hand, enjoying the view from one of our iconic locations and exceptional outdoor spaces."

"Smith & Wollensky has a rich heritage of bringing people together with great food. This summer, we build on our reputation as a connector and join Old & New, Summer & Fun, and Food & Wine with the introduction of our Summer Grill Menu," added Michael Feighery, president of Smith & Wollensky.

A sampling of the Summer Grill Menu includes "Tried & True" favorites, starting with Pork Chop Milanese and new smaller cuts of Smith & Wollensky's acclaimed meats; "Light & Healthy" offerings, such as Shrimp Cobb Salad, Asparagus & Crab Meat Salad, and Ahi Tuna Steak Sandwich; and "This & That" sides, such as Truffled Macaroni & Cheese, Sauteed Mushrooms, and Creamed Spinach. It wouldn't be summer without "Lobster & More Lobster"—Lobster Bisque, Surf & Turf Maine lobster & filet mignon, and Lobster Mashed Potatoes. "Sea & Be Seen" trying Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass, along with Jumbo Diver Scallops and Scottish Salmon served with a variety of chef-inspired sauces; or "Nibble & Nosh" on Fried Calamari, Watermelon & Feta Cheese Salad, and Seared Scallops with Peanut Vinaigrette.
