Smith & Porter emphasizes classic and inventive American dishes that celebrate local produce and homespun recipes.

Located in the heart of Mill City and blocks from the Guthrie Theater and the MacPhail Center for Music, Smith & Porter offers dining options for every occasion. Brown takes his culinary inspiration from both his classical training and the hours he spent as a kid cooking with his grandmother in the kitchen. Hailing from a family of chefs (his mother is a retired chef and his sister a baker), Brown’s approach utilizes scratch-cooking technique, comfort-food ingredients and preparations, and an emphasis on seasonal produce from the nearby Mill City Farmers Market.
