Barbara Smith, a lifestyle guru who’s sort of like Martha Stewart, only not a convicted felon, offers “global cuisine” at her relaxing restaurant. Southern flavors are the big influence: fried green tomatoes topped with ricotta cheese, and a huge slab of fried catfish served with red-pepper aioli. The menu includes a few pastas, as well as meatier entrées like lamb chops plated with a side of sweet potatoes. The slightly uneven cooking will do for a pretheater meal, but nothing here is likely to get Smith her own television show.
