Subtle flavors cleverly worked!

The sense of taste is the winning in this restaurant. Once the plate gets to you table the aromas are mouth-watering and the flavors are so tastily unexpected. It's rare to have this kind of well achieved cuisine d'autor. From the entrée to the dessert I had a rather pleasant experience. I will... read more

When we lived in Seattle, the Metropolitan Grill was one of our two favorite restaurants. This visit, 14 years later, did not disappoint. If you enjoy an excellent steak or piece of salmon, then go. The servers are also the best. We were so happy that the interior of the restaurant sill looked the same as we remembered it. Too... More

It's tucked away in a courtyard but if you can find it and it's open (evenings Friday and Saturday only) you will be rewarded.

We ate at Metropolitan while we were in Avignon. If we had not been recommended it, we would not have found it. Immediately we knew we wanted to eat there when we spoke to the chef and when we asked about a menu, he said he was still thinking about the menu for dinner, but gave us an idea of... More

Three ways to stumble over this somewhat secluded restaurant: a) you went to visit the great contemporary art exhibition of Collection Lambert... (because it is located in the magical courtyard of this absolutely splendid 18th century hôtel particulier), b) you have heard about it from a friend (quite probable, because anyone would want to return to it) or c) you...
