Kosher restaurants are held to high standards: they're inspected by rabbis, they use different dishes for meat and dairy products, and no one is allowed to use the letter "E" while dining in one. Enjoy a vowel-light meal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of kosher soups, sandwiches, and entrees at MetroKlub, located in the Crowne Plaza Hotel on West Madison Street.
MetroKlub’s chefs line midday bellies with a menu of gourmet kosher soups, sandwiches, salads, and steaks. The slow-cooked, sauce-drenched slices of the barbecue brisket sandwich arrive on a potato roll with coleslaw, pickle, and fries ($16). Departing a pack of classic hot and cold deli sandwiches, thin-sliced pastrami on rye ($13) slips a whole-grain mustard coat over its beefy shoulders before heading off to a lunch date with a side of sweet potato fries. Unleash cutlery on the skirt steak frites with herb-dusted fries ($19) or the seared Atlantic salmon, delivered whole via carrier pelican each morning before being filleted and served with wild mushrooms, green beans, and Yukon potatoes ($17). MetroKlub’s polished stone floors, tile accents, and pressed-tin ceiling elevate quick lunches with the decorum or glee in echo-making of years gone by, and free valet parking allows for extra post-meal lounging in cushy leather chairs.
