With white brick walls, black accents, an around-the-bend bar and plenty of natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, the Metro Kitchen and Bar is hoping to bring in hungry customers from across the county and points north. It opened at the beginning of March—bad timing, but who could have possibly predicted a health quarantine? With customers stuck at home, the restaurant offered take-out and delivery. Once restrictions are lifted and places open back up, we’ll have plenty of reasons to cheer. With all of the TVs, expect sports fans to gather here. The outdoor seating will be welcome in warm weather.
An original concept by Boca Restaurant Group and a sister restaurant to Boca Oyster Bar, Metro is a place to scoop up deals, including less-than-$10 sports grub: think mozzarella sticks, wings (like Thai Chili wings), nachos with cheese and slides. Salads go big, like the Cold Lobster Salad over mixed greens with peppers, red onion, cucumbers and a dill-cucumber yogurt dressing. Metro Kitchen and Bar features scratch-made dishes, like their juicy burgers, seasonal tacos and entrées, all prepared with quality ingredients. Cocktails have fun, like the “Fountain of Youth,” a mix of Bacardi Grapefruit, Truly Lime “Spiked” Seltzer and a splash of St. Germain. Let’s raise a glass and cheer for better days.
