The Metropolitan Grill
The moment you step into the Metropolitan Grill, you know you have entered a classic steakhouse. The Met is located in a historic building built in 1903 where guests enter through tall mahogany doors, under the bright green awning, to be greeted by tuxedo clad Maitre D's. Cuts of beef are showcased in a glass display in the front entryway. Twenty-foot columns reach to the ceiling that is trimmed with original moldings. Tables and railings are adorned with mahogany and brass and the booths are plush and oversized. Framed photographs of celebrities, sports heroes and local politicians, all frequent visitors to The Met, line the walls.
At the Metropolitan Grill, the focus is on the prime beef. The Met has built its reputation on the classics - filet mignon, New York peppercorn steak, delmonico, porterhouse and chateaubriand, carved tableside. Steaks are seared over the high heat of the "Iron Wood of the World," imported mesquite charcoal, ensuring the most tender, juicy steaks available. The Chefs personally select each cut that is served to guests, choosing corn-fed USDA prime from the Midwest that has been custom dry aged.
The professional staff at the Metropolitan Grill takes great pride in making sure every guest enjoys the ultimate dining experience. Whether it's a business lunch, a gathering before a downtown event, a dinner with friends, or a private party for 40, the Metropolitan Grill is the choice in Seattle year after year.
