The warm glow of a red lantern greets guests as they enter Saint Crispin, the usual white walls of the Smith Street restaurant now sporting a lick of crimson paint. A distinct hum of activity, and the delicious scent of Sichuan cuisine, emerges from the kitchen as expectant visitors await their first taste of this homey menu with a contemporary spin.
