The Metro’s focus is on provincial, French food served in a bistrot atmosphere using many local ingredients. We are not an haute cuisine or fusion-style restaurant with high prices, tiny portions, post-modern effusions, or heavy butter and cream sauces. We do not pile diverse foods up in a vertical cry of culinary desperation; our food proudly lies horizontally. And remember, dining is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.
