Merging urban sophistication with a relaxed suburban attitude,
Metro Lafayette is a stylish destination serving big city food. With the largest outdoor patio in the east bay, it's the perfect place for al fresco dining
amongst mulberry trees, fragrant lavender and rosemary bushes and trellised vines. Metro has been honored the past six years with the prestigious Michelin Guide Recommendation and is Zagat-rated.
The menu features an eclectic mix of seasonal California-French dishes including Grilled Frog Hollow Peach Bruschetta with Skyhill Farms goat cheese, caramelized onions & hazelnuts; Hamachi Crudo with avocado, serrano chile, daikon sprouts & lemon-soy glaze; Brentwood Sweet Corn Fritters with summer squash & chipotle aļoli; and Roasted King Salmon with creamy sweet corn risotto, snap peas, piquillo peppers & basil oil.
Owner Jack Moore and sommelier Keith Hansen offer a wine list that appeals to all budgets and palates. The contemporary interior, by Berkeley-based designers
Sheahan + Quandt,
make diners feel like they've ventured out of suburbia. Having spent much of his career managing the front of the house for celebrity chefs in northern
California and Las Vegas, Moore's vision is to offer innovative dishes and refined service in a sophisticated environment. A full bar, raw bar, and outdoor patio (voted among the top 10 restaurant patios in the San Francisco Bay Area by Open Table diners)
anchor the space. With wide-ranging experience at renowned restaurants in the Bay Area, Executive Chef Albert Rivera creates dishes that impress locals as well as those venturing east of the Caldecott.
