Metric Bar and Grill's skilled chefs whip up a menu of classic dishes that scintillate palates with aged beef and pier-fresh fish enhanced with unexpected Caribbean and Asian influences. Diners can warm up their mandibles by reciting their favorite Dr. Seuss book or nibbling on an appetizer such as the Sierra Supremo nachos, whose blue and gold corn chips arrive smothered in jack cheese and steak chili or grilled chicken. After the introductory dish, culinary adventurers ready for a new conquest can tackle heartier entrees, including an 11-ounce new york strip or a tender 10-ounce filet mignon. Meat lovers carefully savor their chosen cuts while letting eyes rove over the restaurant's brick walls, festively adorned with floral bouquets and vibrant paintings. For those seeking a lighter bite, the diverse kitchen also fire-roasts Norwegian salmon, Block Island swordfish, and other sea meats before alluringly arranging them atop salad beds of mesclun greens cushioned with arugula body pillows.
Metric Bar and Grill
Metric Bar and Grill seasons fresh-caught seafood and aged beef with Asian and Caribbean flair that also takes in worldwide influences from Italy to Louisiana. As skilled chefs sear thick steaks over an open flame, fresh greens get a mist of house-made salad dressing and woks sizzle vegetables and curries. Inside the eatery, original abstract art electrifies exposed brick walls offset by finished-glass tables and deep wood chairs. Beyond the chic dining room, Metric is known for catering special events, such as business meetings, cocktail parties, and Constitutional Conventions. The accommodating staff can happily fax daily specials to offices or whip up custom group orders on short notice.
