A unique retail experience.

Wordsmith is a boutique retail experience that explores the progressive lifestyle of an ever-present Hospitality industry. 

We exist to peel back the history, bridge the gap between the commercial kitchen and the home kitchen, and push forward the narrative of how connected we are through the diversity of food culture and the people who are dedicated to the craft of food and beverage service. Books, merchandise, tastings, and events will underline the curated, open, and inclusive space for foodies, fans, chefs, students, and all lovers of food, drinks, and community.

Hospitality is a dialogue..
