Le Dauphine is the only Metz restuarant I returned to for a second meal, because Metz has gazillions of lovely good restaurants and we were set to try them all. The sausage couscous plat in the first lunch was so delicious, the terrine and crudites entrees so generous, the price so modest that we returned a few days ago before leaving Metz after a brilliant three-month residence. AND I was not wrong. The lamb shank was humongous and the meat fell off the bone; the veal steak tender; sides of veg and hash potatoes entire meals in themselves. The qt jug of red wine was 5 Euros. This kind of warm, friendly traditional Bistro cooking is hard to find in Paris or Manhattan. Perhaps only in a genuine provincial city of venerable history can you find a small restaurant like Le Dauphine, right by the wonderful Metz Museum.
