The Metro Bistrot is always for everyone
and for no one.



Wine

    The Metro Bistrot does not have a Wine & Beer License at this time. However, customers may bring their own (BYOB), although we now charge a corkage fee ($5 for one bottle and $10 for two or more).
    We do recommend several stores in the area, which carry wines that go well with our food. Right now my favorite is The Winebuyer's Outlet on 179 Main Street (route 131) in Sturbridge in the former Rom's building. They have an unique selection of French wines, especially their wines from the south of France. To help our customers find them, the owner, Paul Sagansky, has set aside a special Metro Bistrot selection. One of their best is a boutique Gigondas, which sells for about $40. This is a flat out pull down your pants and scream wine.
    However, the closest store to the bistrot is Austin Spirits on Main Street in Southbridge (3 minutes away). They also carry a specific selection of wines for us from Panther Distributing, which can be found on the immediate left as you enter the store. My two favorite are the Picpoul de Pinet, Saint-Jean des Sources 2014, for a white, which goes well with our seafood dishes, and the ready to drink now 2006 Chateau Clinet, a Bordeaux wine light enough for summer drinking or now any of the 2015 Bordeauxs or 2014 Burgundies.
    In addition, Marty's on Main Street in Dudley has several French wines that are of especially good value for their quality and price. These are: 1) Trimbach's Pinot Blanc from Alsace (white), 2) a 2011 Savigny-les-Beaune (red Burgundy) from Vincent Sauvestre, 3) a 2010 Cotes du Rhone, La Griveliere (red), and 4) a simple 2010 Pinot Noir Burgundy (red) blend from Josephine Dubois. On the domestic side, there is also a Californian chardonnay, 2009, which is a steal and drink now white. For the best deal, try to buy a mixed case.    

    Of course we also recommend Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge, which has the largest stock of wines, especially French wines, in the area.
