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 five years with the prestigious Michelin Guide Recommendation and is Zagat-rated.
The menu features an eclectic mix of seasonal California-French dishes including Mary's Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes, sautéed Happy Boy rainbow chard & country gravy; Dungeness Crab Parfait with citrus, red onion & English cucumber puree; Seared Gulf Prawns with Anson Mills polenta, fava beans & Hobbs’ applewood smoked bacon; and Gnocchi Parisienne with delta asparagus, English peas, Meyer lemon & spinach cream.
Owner Jack Moore and sommelier Keith Hansen offer a wine list that appeals to all budgets and palates. The sleek 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 large outdoor patio
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.
