“The Met” is inviting, modern-chic and a luxe room of bold, sophisticated beauty that mingles traditional with inventive. Enjoy sit-down dining or cocktail gatherings with delightful appetizers. You and your guest are always VIP here. Welcoming the over-30 urbanite, this restaurant sets the standard for dining excellence in a stylish, lively atmosphere.
Indulging your inner epicure from appetizers to entrées, they are unapologetically picky about sourcing their ingredients from the highest quality and the best selections, therefore they choose to use hand-selected Angus AAA Reserve Beef aged for a minimum of 28 days, resulting in superior tenderness and flavor.
A popular appetizer choice is the Pig & Pineapple Flatbread. Served on a paddle suitable for discipline, the rectangular flatbread arrived piping hot, cheese still gooey. The addition of pancetta, pineapple and jalapeños provide just the right contrast of sweet and heat to the house made tomato sauce and mozzarella. Big enough for sharing, tasty enough for hoarding, we give two big thumbs up for this appetizer.
We’re big fans of capers, and it was with delight we noticed the Caponata was topped with them. A traditional Italian-style vegetarian antipasto, the creamy roasted eggplant’s smooth flavour is offset by the sharpness of golden raisins and the salty capers. When scooped up with the herb and olive oil infused focaccia, the blend of flavours is a winner.
The Caprese ain’t your mama’s Grilled Cheese! The first clue is that the grilled sourdough sandwich arrives perched on a drizzled balsamic reduction. Surprisingly, considering there’s three kinds of cheese, the addition of fresh basil and tomato on fluffy sourdough bread makes this quite light fare. The crisp accompanying salad provides just the right contrast, with candied walnuts making their own statement.
Try to get your mouth around The Met Cheddar Bacon Burger! Tenderloin and striploin are ground in-house every morning offering the most tender and juicy of burgers that you can order to your liking, we ordered ours medium rare. Topped with smoked bacon, aged white cheddar, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and garlic aioli all inside a fresh Brioche bun.
One would be remiss to leave the Metropolitan without trying one of their hand selected premium steaks. The 10 oz. AAA Angus Reserve New York Striploin is a sure bet. Seasoned just right and flame grilled, juicy and tender, topped with a rich cream demi glace, you can’t go wrong in this top spot.
