Tacoma restaurant Smoke + Cedar will open this weekend at Allenmore Golf Course, but there’s a catch. The restaurant only will be open for dinner and only by reservation. The by-reservation opening is designed to keep the restaurant moving smoothly during its inaugural week, said Gordon Naccarato, a Tacoma native who also Pacific Grill in downtown Tacoma. Expect the first few days, or up to the first week of operation, to limit dining to the reservation-only option as the restaurant settles into its new digs. Yes, that means you’ll actually have to call and make reservations – how very un-Tacoman, right?
