B. Smith's is pleased to announce the addition of live piano offerings to jumpstart the jazz weekend performances at the historic Union Station restaurant. Beginning on July 29, every Thursday evening from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, one of D.C.'s most esteemed pianists, Gary Rowe, will be on hand to add a smooth melody to the crisp southern flavors of B. Smith's in the district.

A pianist, composer, recording artist and teacher, Rowe is a force in the local music world. Playing in some of the finest restaurants and hotels including The Four Seasons, The Ritz Carlton, Le Jardinaire and the Cypress Club, Rowe's eclectic experience and repertoire is sure to please the city's diverse dinner guests.
Rowe's stylings will play the perfect duet with B. Smith's Southern home-style offerings and be the perfect kick-off to a weekend full of great music and food. Dinner favorites include Crescent City Gumbo, Lemon Pepper Catfish and Shrimp and Grits. Signature desserts like Bourbon Street Bread Pudding or Sweet Potato Pie are perfect accompaniments to a sweet summer night.
