I would call The Met Back Bay an “all purpose” restaurant.
When you walk in you have two options of where to go… the downstairs is a large bar area with a few tables set up, and a ham and cheese bar area. Upstairs there is a bar/lounge area with comfy booths and a warm feel to it, as well as a restaurant section for full dining.
In the winter it feels cozy and in the summer (with the patio open), it will be a great place to sit outside and people watch on Newbury Street.
I would recommend this place for a date spot, business lunch or dinner, a girls night out, really you could come here for any occasion and at any age. I had a girls night there a few weeks ago, and my mom just had one there last week. You can make it as causal or fancy as you want… I have come, sat at the lounge, ordered some drinks and apps, and I have also been here while sitting in the dining room area and having a full course meal.
I really enjoy the food and drinks here. I am OBSESSED with the Back Bay Micro Chop Salad (which is a dinner size salad-HUGE, only $11, and comes with so many different ingredients that I can’t even name them all) Which is why I took a picture…(please keep in mind this is only a half portion, I split it with my friend because as you will see further down we had a lot of other food that night)
Some other meals that were ordered:
The report back was an A for the burger and fries.
This is an arugula salad with some mushrooms and lobster added to it…to be honest, compared to the amount of arugula and the size of the salad, there should have been more lobster added (but the lobster was very good).
This was one of my favorite entrée dishes that I tried. It’s the Tuna Steak with brown rice and spicy greens, cooked to perfection!
Mushroom & leeks and the truffle fries were two amazing side dishes (we also got the truffle corn which I wasn’t a huge fan off, a little too heavy).
The final touch….Chocolate Molten Cake with Caramel Filling and caramel ice cream on the side! Need I say more?
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!
