Getting back in the game usually takes a lot of hard work, or at least convincing your brother to slide some of Mario's lives over to Luigi, which's nice, but you KNOW he's gonna use all the P-Wings and Tanooki suits. Marking two restaurant pros' return to the scene, The Metropolitan.
From the couple who created the iconic Great American Diners of Lower Bucks before taking a break in the corporate world, The Metropolitan situates eaters in comfy upholstered booths and on stained oak barstools wrapping a hefty bar, where they can nab upscale takes on diner fare and cocktails, virtually guaranteeing you'll leave french toasted. While they serve breakfast all day, more formal comestibles start off with apps like the tater/bacon/Cabot cheddar/scallion Yukon Gold Potato Spring Rolls, Sweet Chili Wings w/ tarragon aioli, Goat Cheese & Artichoke Dip served with pita chips, and Cheesesteak Eggrolls, an Asian twist on the staple that'll have Joey Vento making a new sign in no time. Main plates get global with Asian duck tacos and an Italian shredded duck/Parmigiano-Reggiano/root veggie Pappardelle, and there're also American blue plate specials like cast iron skillet'd blackened catfish and wagyu/smoky ketchup glazed Metropolitan Meatloaf, which's way more fetching than Metrosexual Meatloaf, cause those form-fitting sweaters just emphasize his breasts.
For the dranking side of things, it's signature cocktails like the pineapple-infused Metropolitan VIP and the Bacardi O/lime juice/mint/pineapple Metropolitan Mojito, plus there's a dozen drafts of sweet locals and standard domestics and 18 bottles, including some Flying Fish offerings, which're much more desirable now that they're not trying to eat you in World 3.
