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 Clay Pot Chicken with shitake mushrooms, jalapeno, Chinese black beans & cilantro rice; Oysters Rockefeller with leeks, parmesan & organic spinach; Roasted Five Dot Ranch Tenderloin of Beef with potato gratin, creamed kale & demi-glace; and Gnocchi Parisienne with wild mushrooms & porcini 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.
