The vision for Wellesley’s Smith & Wollensky steakhouse


The Smith & Wollensky steakhouse that will occupy the former Blue Ginger restaurant location at 583 Washington St., in Wellesley has slightly revised its planned opening from April to May.

The restaurant late last year said it was “targeting a mid-April opening date for the new location, just in time to cheer on Boston Marathon runners at the race’s halfway point.” We suppose it’s possible a few stragglers will still be trudging across the course in May, but not likely.

Anyway, business openings are an imperfect science, so no harm there. The restaurant has meanwhile given a nice behind-the-scenes peek, via Facebook, of where construction stands (with lots of exclamation points!).

Also of note: Smith & Wollensky in March will seek approval from the Board of Selectmen for an entertainment license. So we’re envisioning live music, so you can Shake & Steak.
